Warning: This is just my personal note
about how to install SySAM2 on Debian Etch. I don’t give any warranty
that is going to work perfectly for you. Meanwhile, I advice that you
can help me to get this “recipe” better with your

So, let’s get down to business. This are the steps to install SySAM on Debian.

0 – Preparation:

1 – Generate response file:

./setup -silent -options-template ./response_file.txt

2 – Edit response_file.txt

Change lines:
### -P installLocation=
### -W setupTypes.selectedSetupTypeId=

-P installLocation=/opt/sybase
-W setupTypes.selectedSetupTypeId=full

3 – Install SySAM2:

./setup -options “./response_file.txt” –W  SybaseLicense.agreeToLicense=true -silent

4 – Setup Enviroment:

mkdir /usr/tmp

5 – Copying Licenses:
You should copy all your licenses files (*.lic) into your “installLocation” licenses’s folder (in this case is /opt/sybase/SYSAM-2_0/licenses/).

6 – Init script:
There is no init script bundled with SySAM, so
its necessary to create one. SySAM has ‘diag’ and ’status’
funcionalities that can come handy. For sake for presentation, I made the init scritp available for download . Copy the file and adapt it for your instalation.(not yet, later!) For my case, my file is /etc/init.d/sysam

7 – Init Levels!
We need to add the script to be used to start/stop the service. Just do:

update-rc.d -n sysam defaults 99

8 – Done!!!
Start using your SySAM server!
