Srvbuildres task failed
During the configuration of ASE with srvbuildres you will sometimes see this error:
Task failed Unable to boot server 'ASE1'. Server 'ASE1' was not created.
This is what you should do:
Look at the last lines of the errorlog created by srvbuildres. If you do not know what it is, it's the filename that you specified in the resource file for srvbuildres. For instance:
The end of the errorlog file will most likely look something like this:
kernel os_create_region: can't allocate 58456064 bytes kernel kbcreate: couldn't create kernel region. kernel kistartup: could not create shared memory kernel The configuration area in device '/var/sybase/ASE1/master.dat' appears to be corrupt. The server cannot continue and will shut down.
When you spot the message "kistartup: could not create shared memory" it means that you did not configure your system to use more that 55 Mb of shared memory. Reconfigure that parameter and try again.
