    Hello Mohamed,

    This type of error usually indicates that your environment variables are not set / sourced. If you log in as the 'sybase' user and source the SYBASE.csh in the installation directory, that would set your environment properly. So try :

    1. login as sybase

    2. cd $SYBASE

    3. source SYBASE.csh (Note: if you are using ksh, then execute ./ )

    4. cd $SYBASE/ASE-16_0/install

    startserver -f RUN_<servername>

    Hope this helps
