I am new to running Sybase on a VMS environment. I am trying to dump a Sybase database to disk on a VMS system and I can't get it to name correctly. I try this command which is a standard Sybase dump command:

1> dump database dbname to 'dka4:[000000]'
2> file = dbname
3> go

I go to my dka4:[000000] disk and there is a file there named ".;1". I told it to name it "gemsoltp". What is the reason for this? Thanks.
