If you encounter problems during the build, configure, or upgrade of Adaptive Server using the srvbuild[res], sqlloc[res], or sqlupgrade[res], it may be that these utilities did not allow enough time for Adaptive Server to shut down properly.
You can set the environment variable SYBSHUTWAIT to force the utilities to wait for Adaptive Server to shutdown. For example:
% setenv SYBSHUTWAIT 120
This forces the utility to wait for 2 minutes to allow Adaptive Server to shut down before proceed with the next task.
