I`m trying to installl Adaptive Server 12.5 on RedHat 4.0 AS and I get almost through all installation steps but at the end after configuration when it supposed to start the db I get this error msgs
RUN_DEV2 file complete.
Unable to boot server 'DEV2'.
Server 'DEV2' was not created.
and then in the log I get this

00:00000:00000:2005/12/20 08:30:19.90 kernel The configuration area in device '/opt/sybase/data/master.dat' appears to be corrupt. The server needs this data to boot, and so cannot continue. The server will shut down.
Anybody knows what is the issue here and how to resolve it?
That simply means that the server name can't be found in the interfaces file.
What is the name of your database server? Did you pass that name as the -S argument to isql? Is that servername in the interfaces file ($SYBASE/interfaces?)
