This WIKI page contains historical certification reports for obsolete versions of ASE, generally from before when SAP acquired Sybase.  The information is most likely of use for customers who are still running on older versions of ASE.  For the certification status of the current actively supported versions (ASE 15.7 and ASE 16.0) please refer to the Product Availability Matrix (PAM) (https://support.sap.com/release-upgrade-maintenance/pam.html) .

2828Adaptive Server EnterpriseSuSE SLES 11 (x86)15.0.3Certified2010-01-31ase1503 esd3 is certified with SUSE11, but note following issue: issue 1: jvm file io will hit stacktrace workaround: During the creation of the PCA/JVM it is necessary to retrieve userid/password information from the network security services (nss) to allow the virtual machine to create a shared memory region. If the information is attempted to be retrieved from the network information service (nis) provider a SEGV will occur. To avoid this a different provider must be able to supply the information prior to attempting to retrieve the information via nis. For nss implementations specifying either 'compat' or 'files nis' retrieval order in the /etc/nsswitch.conf file the following alternatives may be used to avoid this problem: 1) Add the userid and password for the user starting the Adaptive Server to the local /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files using either the adduser command or the graphical user interface for system administration tasks on the host where the server is to be run. This will allow the userid/password request to be satisfied by the local information without recourse to the nis call for this information. 2) If it is not possible or desirable to add the user information to the local files ensure that the name service cache daemon (nscd) is running on the host where the server will be run. The nscd maintains a cache of the userid and password information that is consulted prior to dispatching a request to the nis for this information.   issue 2: all older versions than ase1503 esd3 can't work with SUSE11.

2004-08-02 00:00:00.0

32-bit ASE 12.5.1 required. Testing was  done on SLES 8.0/United Linux 1.0 (kernel: 2.4.19-113, glibc:  2.2.5-213). Using Reiserfs filesystem  for database devices is not recommended due to poor performance. Use ext3 filesystem instead. For 32-bit 12.5.0.3 ESD #1 and above  support on SLES 8.0/UL 1.0. See this <a href="http://www.sybase.com/detail?id=1025116"  target="_blank">Technical Document</a> for details. SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) is based on the  United Linux 1.0 platform. As a result, Adaptive Server certification on SLES  confers implied certification of other Linux distributions based on the  United Linux 1.0 platform. Linux distributors that participate in the United  Linux consortium include SuSE, Turbolinux,  and Conectiva S.A.
