To start a server from the command line, enter:
$SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/install/startserver [ -f runserverfile ]
where $SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/install/startserver is the full path name of the startserver utility, and runserverfile is the full path name of the runserver file (usually $SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/install/RUN_servername).
If your Adaptive Server is named SYBASE, the runserver file specification is optional.
You must have read and write permissions on the master device for an Adaptive Server to start it with startserver. For more information about startserver, see the Adaptive Server Utility Guide.
Although startserver runs Adaptive Server in the background, it does not return to the operating system prompt after restarting. After Adaptive Server has been restarted, press Return to return to the operating system prompt.
