Stopping a database after disconnecting (Sybase Central)

You cannot stop a database you are currently connected to. You must first disconnect from the database, and then stop it.


By default, you must have the SERVER OPERATOR system privilege. The required privileges can be changed by using the -gd database server option.

You must be connected to another database on the same database server to stop a database.

  1. Make sure you are connected to another database on the same database server. If there is no other database running on the database server, you can connect to the utility database.

  2. In Sybase Central, select the database you want to stop and click File » Stop Database.


When disconnecting from the database, the database may disappear from the left pane. This occurs if your connection was the only remaining connection, and if AutoStop was specified when the database was started. AutoStop causes the database to be stopped automatically when the last connection disconnects.
