I am running ASE ESD#3 on RH Linux 7.3 - everything is working as expected except the xp_cmdshell!

When I run xp_cmdshell "date" (with or without an exec) I get ...

Invalid number of parameters. Check the documentation for minimum and maximum number or parameters.

I am running as "sa" with sp_configure "xp_cmdshell context" = 0 so it should run under the "sybase" user context. When I run "sybase status" the XP server process is shown as started with switches "-STERA_XP -p8 -s34816" but does not seem to do much more!

Has anyone seen/solved this one before?

Cheers, Jiim.
