I am trying to upgrade in place from ASE 12.5.4 ESD #9.1 on
AIX to ASE 15 ESD #1 using sqlupgraderes
I had earlier successfully upgraded my ASE 12.5.4 ESD #9.1
Solaris servers to ASE 15.
The AIX sybase server uses utf8 as character set.
I have 4 sybase instances running all on ASE 12.5.4 ESD#9.1
on AIX host and i am trying to upgrade one of them.

However i am getting below error message
Any tips on this would be great

preupgrade eligibility checks does work successfully with 12.5.4 ESD #7
so issue must be elsewhere.
Are you 100% certain that your Sybase environment is correctly set ?
OLDSYBASE and OLDSYBASE_ASE must point to 12.5.4, whereas SYBASE should
be v15
I'm curious about ESD #9.1 : 1st time I see a minor number in an ESD
revision. Could you post the @@version string of the 12.5.4 dataserver ?
