The methods described in this chapter are used to start Adaptive Server, Backup Server, and Monitor Server after a shutdown for database maintenance, because of an operating system crash, or for other reasons.

XP Server is not started by the installation process. XP Server is started only when an XP command is issued through isql.

You can use Sybase Central to start and stop servers manually or automatically.

For information about starting the full-text search server, see the Standard Full-Text Search Specialty Data Store User’s Guide.
