Srvbuildres task failed
When you run srvbuildres some common errors can occur.
Unable to boot server
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 where the errorlog 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. See Installation guidelines ASE for instructions how to do this.
Unable to find SQL file to run optimization task
When creating a new Sybase server and you have set do_optimize_config to yes in the resource file
You may get these errors
Optimizing server configuration... Unable to find SQL file to run optimization task. Task failed
To optimize your server you can run the script optase.sh located in $SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/bin. Example:
Then specify the requested values. When done, a list of commands is shown that can be used to optimize your server.
Failed to add entry to interfaces file
Building Adaptive Server 'ASE1': Writing entry into directory services... Task failed Failed to add entry to interfaces file for `ASE1', snlpskcm, tcp, 5000. Server 'ASE1' was not created.
For ASE 15.0.2 ESD 2 an error has been spotted when you run srvbuildres and there is no interfaces file present in the release directory. There are two solutions for this:
- 1. Create an empty interfaces file before starting srvbuildres
- 2. Restart srvbuildres again, the second time it will work.
