Unable to connect to database server: Unable to start database engine
I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this. However, here goes.
I am using PB 7.0
I set up my database using the ODBC Data Source Administrator configuration
for Adaptive Server Anywhere (System DSN).
Then I created my profile. I tested the connection and it worked fine.
Then I went to Jaguar Manager, created the Connection Cache using the
database I just setup. I setup everything currectly including using the
odbc32.dll (Driver Tab)
I got this error when I pinged it:
(error is taken from my aguar's srv.log file)

...Unable to start database engine
I am a very new Sybase Central user (5.5.04). I am going through the DB
replication tutorial found in chapter 27. As soon as I create the
database (hq.db) using the Create Database Utility I get the error
messages "Unable to start database engine" and "Database
'C:\TUTORIAL\HQ.DB' not created".
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong and how to fix it? Thanks.
...Unable to start database engine
I'm using PB7. I have an Adaptive Server Anywhere database that was
converted from Sybase SQL Anywhere 5.0. I created the DB profile for this
database, using the easdemodb profile as a guide. As far as I can tell, all
the settings are correct. I can connect to this database, if Adaptive
Server Anywhere is already running. If it is not running however, I get the
error message "Unable to start database engine". I looked at the datasource
configuration in the ODBC control panel, and the database "Start Line"
parameter is exactly the same as the one defined for...Unable to create new database
I have SQL Anywhere Studio 6.0 installed on a Windows 2000,
SP1 workstation. Right after install I tried to create a new database
using Sybase Central and got "Unable to start database engine, SQLCode
-80." After reboot I got a different error, although it still did not
create a new database. Installed EBF 6.0.3 and then got "Error in
file mksadb50.sql at line 245 with SQLCode -645."
Tried dbinit and go the same thing.
Tried installation on Windows 98 system and Sybase Central did
not work but dbinit did.
What's going on here?
