Subject: Using sybperl to automate 11.9.2 upgrade
Date: Feb 16 1999 5:17PM
Has anyone had any experience using sybperl / perl to automate the
upgrade process? I seem to be running into some problems, using
HP-UX 10.20, perl 5.005_02, and sybperl 2.09. The problems seem to
stem from the fact that when I run sqlupgraderes, it shuts down the
dataserver, and spawns a new one. I have tried using open(), qx,
and ``, but all hang after the sqlupgrade process is finished. There
is a process that is the child of my upgrade script, and
the parent (my upgrade script) does not want to continue. Anybody
run into this? Anyone have any suggestions on how to get around it?
Any comments at all? I've been trying things for a week, and still
no luck. I need to get this figured out soon, so that I don't let my
part of the schedule slide. Thanks for any help anyone can give.
