You can start the Full-Text Search engine from Sybase Central™, as a service, or from the command line:
From Sybase Central – see your Sybase Central documentation for information about starting servers.
As a service – see Starting the Full-Text Search Engine As a Service below.
From the command line – use the following syntax:
%SYBASE%\%SYBASE_FTS%\bin\txtsvr.exe -Sserver_name [-t] [-i%SYBASE%path_to_sql.ini_file] [- l%SYBASE%path_to_errorlog]
-S is the name of the Full-Text Search engine you are starting
-t directs start-up messages to standard error
-i is the path to the sql.ini file
-l is the path to the error log
For example, to start a Full-Text Search engine named KRAZYKAT on NT using the default sql.ini and error log files, and using -t to trace start-up messages, enter:
%SYBASE%\%SYBASE_FTS%\bin\txtsvr.exe -SKRAZYKAT -t
The Full-Text Search engine is up and running when you see the start-up complete message.
