When the sybase is installed in the Solaris system, the creation of an active library or the active/backup library often fails. How to handle this problem?
Check according to the following steps:
1. Have you configured the system according to the installation instruction after installing the OS? For example, have you set the shared memory properly? Have you restarted the server after the setting?
2. Check whether the port and the IP address are correctly set when the database is installed.
3. Confirm that the user who installs the database is granted the authority to modify the /opt/Sybase/data directory.
If it is a Watchman dual-system, you may also need to check the attributes of the database system volume set when Watchman is installed. You can run vea to log in to VERITAS Enterprise Administrator, and then right-click Database System Volume to edit its attributes.
4. Check whether any simple errors exist in /etc/hosts, for example, duplicate lines.
5. Run vea to check whether the content of /opt/sybase/SYBASE.sh is included in environment variables.
6. The problem may also be caused by incomplete installation of a patch. For Solaris8, try reinstalling Huawei 4.03; and for Solaris10, try reinstalling Huawei 6.0.2.
If the problem cannot be find out, collect the following information and consult Huawei’s engineers:
1. Run the commands df -k, swap -s, swap -l env, and return the running result.
2. Return log information:
3. Return the file /etc/system.
