I have installed Sybase 11.9.2 on Solaris 8. The installation completed successfully, but keep getting the error message in the log "Can't restart SQL BACKUP Server."

Hi,

Make sure the Sybase backup server name matches the format EVENTSRVR_BS, where EVENTSRVR is the EVENTSERVER
NAME of Autosys database. If it matches, make sure the entry does exist in the sql.ini file!

One other thing: It is Sybase 12 , not 11. Sorry about the mistake.

Hi,

From the log it seems that your backup server wasn't started at all, because backup server couldn't start a network listener. Could it be that your backup server has the same port number as your ASE? Or the port number of backup server is used by another progamm? If that's the case you should check which program is using this port ---> "netstat -a" <--- will determine the program that is using the port number!

Hi Raisor,

You were right. The backup server had the same port number as the ASE in the interfaces file. After changing the port number to 5026, I was able to start the backup server.

Many thanks for your help. The case is closed.

P.S. Do you (or anyone else) know any freeware available on Windows where I can access the Sybase tables running on a Unix server?
