Anyone encountered issues with sqlupgrade or sqlupgraderes on ASE 16 AIX? I consistently encounter the program abending with "ASE failed to restart" while in fact ASE was coming up. Happens with xwindow gui and command line.
SAP support suggests using SYBSHUTWAIT and SYBBOOTWAIT as a delay. Which would make sense if ASE only cycled one time during the upgrade. The initial cycle takes 45 min. Subsequent cycles take 5-10 min. So with 3-4 more cycles you are wasting approx 3-4 hours waiting..
