srvbuildres installs ASE from a resource file which is human readable and editable. It's written up in the "ASE Utility Guide" for you version - all manuals available for free and without registration from www.sybase.com/support/manuals.

There is a sample resource file for ASE in $SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/init/sample_resource_files.

Broadly speaking you need to supply the same details you did in building your first ASE (names, paths for devices for master and sysprocs, database sizes, network address, etc), and it will create all the things you need to have an ASE you can boot (devices, interfaces file entry, RUN_SERVER file, config file, etc).

Hi,
I'm thinking to run sybase setup from the setup file, more easier for less experience ppl like me who need to work in sybase.

Yep that will work too, you have the option to create a new ASE without reinstalling the software.

Resource files are great for a repeatable or unattended process.
