2223180 - Adding comment (hash sign # ) in RUN_FILE can cause problems -SAP ASE


Modified the RUN_server file adding comments after some of the items entered -  and now the server will not boot correctly.

It could be required to modify the RUN_ServerName file used to start the Adaptive server for purpose like the following :

    - Add traces to debug server
    - Change the location of the errorlog
    - Change the name of the server to use another entry in the interface file

In this situation, it is useful to add comment in the file to kee traces of the modification. It could also be usefull to replace the original line by a new one, and to comment the old one without modification.

After changing the file and after adding comments, the ASE server can refuse to start, or it can start with a hieratic behavior like:

    - Not use the right Server Name
    - Unable to use the right configuration parameter
    - Unable to boot because it doesn't find the right information.
