I am using Sybase 11x since April, 1997. Recently we baught an IBM Xeon Processor Server and installed Sybase 11x. But while creating the datadevice its shows some problems. I had given the size as only 1 GB (ie; vsize = 512000). But the same occupies more than 6 GB space on the hard disk initially. After that i droped the device and created a device with 100 MB space, it works and occupies correct space on Hard disk. I again dropped the 100 MB datadevice and added 1 GB datadevice. Now it works and occupies the correct space on HD. Can anyone help me?..Why this problem occurs and how to overcome this and is it make any problem for my data already i had stored.
