I am using Sybase Central 6.0.0.4765, with plug-in Adaptive Server
Enterprise v15.5

When I try to connect, and type in the field "Server name" alias "tst"
it shows in the "Server info" field the correct Host/Port pair for my
testing server.
If I type "rpt" it shows "Host: rpt" with a tooltip "Invalid server name".
Both tst and rpt are correctly defined in %SYBROOT%\ini\sql.ini.

Why does not SC6 read my sql.ini and where does it take data for Server
name field? If I click on drop-down arrow for this field I see there a
bunch of extremely old aliases which were in use years ago but no more
(rpt is not among them).

Yes, it helped.
Now I am confused. I had the SYBASE variable set up in the past. But
since I upgraded my client toolset to 15.5 ESD#5 the SYBASE variable
disappeared and was replaced by SYBROOT...
It is all very suspicious...
