I just installed ASE 15.0.2 on Linux, and created an "interfaces" file with two server entries in it:
        query tcp ether 50000
        master tcp ether 50000

        query tcp ether 50000
        master tcp ether 50000

However, when I try to run isql with the following command, it gave me the error:
ct_connect(): directory service layer: internal directory control layer error: Requested server name not found.

The "isql" command I was using:
isql -S CHI_IRPTRACKER_DEV -U trackerUpdate -P sybase -I "/opt/sybase/interfaces"

Sybase is installed in directory "/opt/sybase", and I have two env. variables defined:

What could have caused this problem? Is there a debug flag to show more detailed information for either "isql" or the "ct" library?
