You forgot to configure shared memory on your system (check the installation and
configuration manual on your software box of Sybase).

The Sybase SQL server does not start unless the o.s. kernel has enough shared
memory available.

You must to put that line on /etc/system file and then reboot the machine:

set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=<max_memory_allocatable>

The number rappresent the maximum shared memory segment size allowed.

Make a "man -s 4 system" for other information.



1. Can't start master server in Sybase Adaptive 11.5

: I am installing Sybase Adaptive server 11.5 and I have the following problems.
: After building the server, the installation process tried to start master
: server.  It can't find configuration file and it created configuration file
: by itself.  It seems server can't be started using DEFAULT values of
: configuration file.  I didn't define DEFAULT and don't know what vaules
: needed for that.  Could you tell me what I need to do?

You have to increase share memory limits in /etc/system and reboot.
Refer to the installation guide for details. Sorry that I can't give
you info now since I'm at home.
