The format in interfaces file is correct (tli tcp format). My Solaris Administrator had updated/changed the IP address of the host, without informing us. After updating the interfaces file with new IP address (both master & query entries), ASE Server had started.
Using physical names or addresses instead of logical names will always cause problems. Your error is that you should not place IP addresses in the interfaces file, that is sub-standard. It should be system (machine) name and port number. Your SysAdmin SHOULD be able to change IP addresses without having to tell you or consult with you.

Thanks for info. ASE Server that I have configured on Solaris is accepting entries in TLI TCP format by default, which has IP address & port number in hexadecimal form.In this case, can i edit the entries to tcp ether (i.e manually editing tli tcp format to tcp ether format)? Does Solaris Sparc machines support this? If not, how would we resolve this issue in tli tcp format - on Solaris?
