Cannot start ASE backup server


I installed SAP ASE 16.0 and I am trying to load a database from a backup and I get the following when executing:

Can't open a connection to site 'SYB_BACKUP'. See the error log file in the ASE boot directory.

A look at the log file shows me this:

Jan 26 11:07:34 2021: Open Server Error: 16253.10.0: srv_thread_props(): property SRV_T_LISTENADDR not valid for service thread .

Jan 26 11:07:34 2021: Started listener at

Jan 26 11:07:34 2021: Open Server Error: 16240.10.0: Net-Library routine sybnet_listen() failed in srv__start_net Network error: status = 23 - Net-Lib protocol driver call to register a listener failed .

Jan 26 11:07:34 2021: Open Server Server Fatal Error: 16029.20.0: Failed to start any network listeners

I've tried manually restarting the SAP BCKServer service but get Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly and I get those same entries in the log file
