Start SAP ASE Using a Configuration File

By default, SAP ASE reads the configuration file server_name.cfg in the start-up directory when it starts. If this file does not exist, it creates a new file and uses SAP ASE defaults for all values.

You can start SAP ASE with a specified configuration file. For more information, see the Utility Guide.

If the configuration file you specify does not exist, SAP ASE prints an error message and does not start.

If the command is successful, the file server_name.bak is created. This file contains the configuration values stored in sysconfigures prior to the time sysconfigures was updated with the values read in from the configuration file you specified. This file is overwritten with each subsequent start-up.
