Errors during installation of NW7.5 PAS - ASE connection issues

I am installing a NW7.5 system. Distributed - so ASCS and PAS on one vm and the DB on another wm. Database is ASE and OS is linux.

I have installed the ASCS with no errors and it is up and running. I have installed the database with no errors and I can start it up and connect via isql.

However I am having trouble installing the PAS instance. Specifically it is when it gets to the point of trying to start the instance and connecting to the database.

It tries to start then the processes all die and it shuts down. The following screen shot is from one of the workprocess trace files...

Initially I had issues with the SSFS store and the errors were relating to that - I have resolved that now. I have patched the kernel and DBSL files to the latest.

I'm not sure if the server=(local); port=0000 is a red herring or not. I would expect port to be 4901 and the hostname to also be populated. All the variables, config files etc have the correct info. So where is it reading this from?

I can't log into SAP and look a DBACOCKPIT as the install hasn't finished and I don't have a running instance to log into.

Any suggestions what to try next?

So I got past the above error and several others since, but something is still outstanding and is related to the above.

I can log into SAP, the db is defined in DBCO and the DBACOCKPIT connection is working. So the application server can see and connect to the database.

However R3trans still cannot connect to the DB and the logs are referring to port 0000.

When you run R3trans -d or -x where does it read the config/parameters from?

My DEFAULT.PFL file is correct and I don't know what else to check.

This is the result of the test in STMS...

I can confirm the port number in the DEFAULT.PFL is the same as the one defined in sybase/interfaces file.
