    Unanswered: Unable to start Sybase 12.5.2 live server

    I'm unable to start Sybase 12.5.2 (running on sparc SUNW,Ultra-80) live server, but the but the backup server is running, I tried this:

    Code:
    bash-2.05# /opt/sybase/ASE-12_5/bin/dataserver -e/opt/sybase/ASE-12_5/install/PPLE_SYB
    
    00:00000:00000:2006/02/01 19:05:26.65 kernel  Checked out license ASE_DEV
    00:00000:00000:2006/02/01 19:05:26.65 kernel  Adaptive Server Enterprise Developer Edition.
    00:00000:00000:2006/02/01 19:05:26.65 kernel  Attempt to open device d_master failed.
    00:00000:00000:2006/02/01 19:05:26.65 kernel  dopen: open 'd_master', No such file or directory
    What is a d_master file/directory? Why is it failing to be opened?



    Somehow though the backup server is up and running :

    Code:
    bash-2.05# /opt/sybase/ASE-12_5/install/showserver
         UID   PID  PPID  C    STIME TTY      TIME CMD
        root  5646     1  0   Oct 19 ?        0:00 sh -c /opt/sybase/ASE-12_5/bin/backupserver -e/opt/sybase/ASE-12_5/install/PPLE
        root  5647  5646  0   Oct 19 ?        0:00 /opt/sybase/ASE-12_5/bin/backupserver -e/opt/sybase/ASE-12_5/install/PPLE_SYB_B

    Here are the last 200 lines of the log file
    Code:
    bash-2.05# tail -200 /opt/sybase/log.txt

    dude,
    Your startup syntax is incomplete.

    /opt/sybase/ASE-12_5/bin/dataserver \
    -sPPLE_SYB \
    -d<specify the absolute path for your master device including the file name> \
    -e<specify the absolute path for your errorlog including the file name> \
    -M/opt/sybase \
    -c/opt/sybase/PPLE_SYB.cfg

    You appear to be logged in as root - it is advisable to run the Sybase servers as a non-root user.

    In $SYBASE/ASE-12_5/install you should have a RUN_xxx file that allows you to start the server. Using that should help quite a bit.

    d_master is the logical name (used internally) for the master device (it may be called master.dat, or something like that, or it might be a raw device, or...)
