The error mentioned refers to a mismatch in entry found in the sysservers and the interfaces file or it could be that the information in the interfaces does not include the SYB_BACKUP entry i.e the backup server.
Please check whether the backup server is listening on the port specified in the interfaces file by using the netstat -a option.

We've had never problems with Sybase 12.0.
The backupserver is running, I can 'ping' it.
In sybase-error-log there is
SYB_BACKUP not found in interfaces file.
Has somebody had the same problem and how to solve it?
Mkalsi is right , the entry in the sysservers shows that the backup server network name is reset to the default value of SYB_BACKUP.
If the update does not reflect after executing the command you may have to update the system table maually.
sp_configure "allow updates",1
update sysservers set
