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:

sqlsrv.errorlog: /opt/sybase/admin/ASE1/errorlog

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. See Installation guidelines ASE for instructions how to do this.
