If ASE Replicator is not configured as described in Chapter 2, “Setting Up and Starting ASE Replicator,” you cannot start replication.
Some typical symptoms of ASE Replicator configuration problems include:
The ASE Replicator process fails to start up, or shuts down immediately after starting.
If you do not specify all of the required parameters when you invoke the aserep script, the ASE Replicator process may start up and shut down immediately with an error.
The ASE Replicator process starts and runs, but all ASE Replicator procedures, including sp_helprep, always return an error.
In the Sybase Central window, the ASE Replicator icon does not appear under the primary Adaptive Server icon in the left pane.
You cannot create ASE Replicator objects, such as database connections, publications and subscriptions, or primary and replicate articles.
To correct ASE Replicator configuration problems
See “Initializing the ASE Replicator process” and make sure that the ASE Replicator configuration meets the requirements described in that section.
