Make sure you are logged in with user syb<sid>.
From the environment variables find you Sybase ASE install Directory:
Travesrse to the install path:
Here you see the configuration files (Runserver) RUN_<SID> (Database server) and RUN_<SID>_BS (Backup server).
Use command startserver to start each server process.
You can either start them individually or together.
- -f runserverfile – specifies the relative path name of a runserver file, which is used as a reference each time you start an SAP ASE server or Backup Server. By default, the runserver file is in the current directory and is named RUN_servername. If you start a second SAP ASE server on the same machine, startserver creates a new runserver file named RUN_servername.
- -m – starts an SAP ASE server in single-user mode, allowing only one system administrator to log in, and turns the allow updates to system tables configuration parameter on. Use this mode to restore the master database. The system administrator can use thedbo use only parameter of sp_dboption for system administration activities that require more than one process, such as bulk copying or using the data dictionary. startserver normally starts up only one server per node.The -m parameter creates an m_RUNSERVER file and overwrites any existing m_RUNSERVER file.
After both the processes are started the control is not returned back until you hit a key.
Now you can check the status of server using command showserver.
