	[ -L  ]
	[ -m message_level  ] 
	[  -P [ password  ]]

	[ -v ]




The recommended method for starting sybcluster and connecting to a cluster is:
sybcluster -U login_name -P password -C cluster_name 
   -F agent_spec 

The -C cluster_name, -P password, -I instance_name, -F agent_connection, and -d discovery_list parameters are default values that can be changed using subsequent sybcluster interactive commands. If you do not specify these values on the sybcluster command line, sybcluster prompts for them as they are required.

You can also start sybcluster and then use the interactive connect command to connect to the cluster. For example:
> connect to mycluster login uafadmin password " "
agent "blade1,blade2,blade3"
