I upgraded a customer from SA 11 to SA 16 (Build 1761). Same server, Win 2008 SP2, Xeon processor. The server has been re-booted after the install.
I modified the Mobilink configuration to:
-v+ -vh -c "dsn=vs16;uid=dba;pwd=sql" -x tcpip(port=2439) -zu+ -dl -w 10 -cn 20 -zf
The service has a dependency, the db has to start first.
I couldn't get the service to start automagically, so I set it to Manual. In Sybase Central 16, I right click over the service, click Start, and the service doesn't go from red to green. I wait 60 seconds or so, bring up task manager, and MLSRV16.exe shows up in task manager, no cpu time, but it has grabbed memory. I then kill the app. I go to the command prompt, enter mlsrv16.exe and paste the the configuration (above), and press enter. The Mobilink server starts in 15 seconds and stays running after I close CMD.
Thanks for your help.

Thank you for the -o suggestion. The log file gave me the info I needed to get the service to start. The error was something like 'No Data Source Found' When I set up the ODBC connection to the database, I did it on User DSN tab. As soon as I created the ODBC entry on the System DSN tab, the service started.
