Replacing the Master Device

You must restart SAP ASE after replacing the master device.

  1. Rebuild the master device with the dataserver -w option:
    dataserver -w master
    Note: Your dataserver command may include other options such as command line flags specifying the device path name, server name, interfaces file name, and so on. These options are listed in the RUN_servername file that normally starts this server.

    The -w master option causes SAP ASE to search the device for database fragments belonging to the master database. After it finds these fragments, it writes a default master database into that space, then shuts down.

  2. Restart SAP ASE with the RUN_servername file.
