If you’re trying to shutdown ASE and you’re not able to log in to the ASE instance, you can shutdown the instance with “kill -15
server Error: 1601, Severity: 17, State: 3 server There are not enough 'user connections' available to start a new process. Retry when there are fewer active users, or ask your System Administrator to reconfigure ASE with more user connections
Obtain the os PID simply by running showserver:
$ showserver USER PID %CPU %MEM SZ RSS TTY STAT STIME TIME COMMAND sybase 542123 15.1 1.0 52220 93356 pts/2 A 11:15:35 8:34 /sybase/ASE-15_0/bin/dataserver -d/dev/rmaster -e/sybase/ASE-15_0/install/errorlog -c/sybase/ASE-15_0/sybase.cfg -isybase -ssybase -M/sybase/mem
Kill the dataserver process with “kill -15” triggering a “shutdown with nowait” within ASE:
$ kill -15 542123
Only as a last resort, use “kill -9”.
- If you need to, verify with “ipcs -m” that the shared memory segments are released, if not use “ipcrm” to release it.
- Verify with “netstat -an |grep
” that the bound port(s) that ASE uses are released. If not, you may need to restart the machine to release them.
