-qs server option

Suppresses startup error windows.

{ dbsrv11 | dbeng11 } -qs ...
Applies to



This option suppresses startup error windows. Examples of startup errors include the database server not being able to open or read a database file or a database server not starting because another database server with the specified name is already running.

On Windows platforms, if the server isn't being autostarted, these errors appear in a window and must be cleared before the server stops. These windows do not appear if the -qs option is used.

If there is an error loading the language DLL, no window appears if -qs was specified on the command line and not in @data. This error isn't logged to the -o or -oe logs, but rather to the Windows Application Event Log (except on Windows Mobile).

Usage errors are suppressed if -qs is on the command line, but not in @data expansion.
