If "attach" means "start", just specify the filespec for serdar.db on the dbsrv12 command line:

   "%SQLANY12%\bin64\dbsrv12.exe" serdar.db

In case you come from a MS SQL Server or Sybase ASE background - SQL Anywhere has a different concept: There's no "master database", each database is independent of each other, and so you don't have to "attach" a database to a particular server instance. Instead you can simply

  • start a database engine with the specified database (as Breck has shown) or
  • use the START DATABASE statement to "load" a database on an already running database.
