Hi Danny,
You can find hostchecker on download.delphix.com - full instructions for downloading and using hostchecker can be found here: https://docs.delphix.com/docs/delphix-administration/sap-ase-environments-and-data-sources/managing-...

Hi,

The hostchecker utility for ASE is in a bit of flux. A project was started to convert the old, Perl based script into a Java utility similar to the one that can be found for Oracle. When they started this project they stopped shipping the Perl based script. Unfortunately, the Java based version has not started shipping yet.

You may download a copy of the old utility using this link delphix_4.2.5.1_2015-10-15-01-04.hostchecker.tar . This link is only good for one week.

Once you unpack it, you can run it like:
$ ./chkHost.pl

Usage: ./chkHost.pl source|target oracle|postgresql|ase

So for example:
-bash-3.2$ ./chkHost.pl source ase

1       Check Host SSH Connectivity
2       Check Tool Kit Path
3       Check OS ASE Environment
4       Check Sybase ASE installations
A       Run All Tests
E       Exit
The tests are somewhat limited but you could combine it with the hostchecker that is deployed in the toolkit and run the other tests (like network port access, toolkit permissions, ssh connectivity, sudo privileges):
https://docs.delphix.com/docs/delphix-administration/oracle-environments-and-data-sources/managing-oracle-environments/using-hostchecker-to-validate-oracle-source-and-target-environments

Hopefully we will get the Java version shipping again soon.

Thanks,
