Server Start-up Parameters

Set the start-up parameters to the correct location and device names for starting an SAP ASE or Backup Server.

The default start-up parameters are stored under $SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/install/RUN_server_name, where server_name is the name of the server you installed.

You cannot change any of these default start-up parameters unless you edit the $SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/install/RUN_ server_name file. You can also specify additional start-up parameters within the $SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/install/RUN_ server_name file.

Backup server names are appended with “_BAK”.
