Using a runserver file

Each time a new Adaptive Server, Backup Server, or Monitor Server is installed, the srvbuild program creates a runserver file that contains the information required to restart that server. Runserver files are created in the $SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/install directory. For Adaptive Server, the runserver file is named RUN_servername, where servername is the name of the server.

For example, the runserver file name for an Adaptive Server named TEST is RUN_TEST.

For Backup Server and Monitor Server, the runserver files are named RUN_servername_back and RUN_servername_mon, respectively, where servername is the name of the server.

WARNING! Do not delete the runserver file that is created in $SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/install. This file is used to restart servers when you customize your installation. If you need the runserver file in another location, make a copy of the original runserver file in the new location.

The runserver file for a server named SYBASE is named RUN_SYBASE. If the runserver file for your current Adaptive Server is named RUNSERVER, you must change the name to RUN_SYBASE during the upgrade process.
