Error 11018



Message text

XP Server must be up for ESP to execute.


XP Server is an Open Server application that runs on the same machine as Adaptive Server and lets you implement extended stored procedures (ESPs). Error 11018 is raised when Adaptive Server is unable to contact XP Server to execute an ESP.


Verify that your interfaces file (UNIX) or sql.ini file (Windows) has the correct entry for XP Server. The XP Server name must be all uppercase and should have the format ASE_SERVERNAME_XP.

Also verify that the server name appears in sysservers, using the isql command:

1> select srvname from master..sysservers
2> go

If you do not find an XP Server entry or the entry is incorrect, refer to your platform’s installation and configuration guide for details about installing XP Server.
