Assuming your $SYBASE is /opt/sybase/vantive155, I'd suggest you:

- make sure your backupserver is listed in the interfaces file found at $SYBASE/interfaces

- make sure the RUN_BACKUP_* script sets $SYBASE, sources $SYBASE/SYBASE.[c]sh, and then runs the backupserver command

If you're still having problems I suggest you:

a - post the entire contents of your RUN_BACKUP* script

b - post the output/errors from trying to start the backupserver (once you've verified $SYBASE/SYBASE.[c]sh has been sourced)

Can you please check in the sp_helpserver output and the interfaces file that Backup server entry exists.
