Hi. We have a customer that was running two ASA 7 services on the same NT
machine.
He upgraded to Sybase 8 and now, when he starts the second 'Test' service,
he sees the msg 'Database cannot be started -- no such file or directory'.

Where can I see what ASA 8 is not able to find/start?

Thanks,
Doug

I believe that message is actually referring to the database file itself.
What version and build of 8.x are you using? With 8.0.2.4218 I get error
messages that specifically state which file it is that we can't find to
open. An useful diagnostic step is to use the -z and -o switches to capture
the debug output and see how far the server got in starting up.

Robert, this is another instance where the customer has, because of space
concerns on 'c' drive, moved ASA, during an update, to another drive. In
this case 'Sybase/SQL Anywhere 8' and 'Sybase/Shared' were on different
drives. When the customer switched (in the service specification) the
dbsrv8 location from one drive to another, the second database mounted
without a reported error.
