I keep getting this message when trying to start the server or the service. I'm pretty sure the server is not running. I also tried on the service panel, I got the same message when trying start the service.

On Windows, you should use a combination of dblocate to locate any servers running in the immediate network and Windows Task Manager Details tab - sorted by process name and having adding Command Line column (so that you can see the command line switches used).

On unix, execute the same dblocate and the following to locate running SQLA servers and their command lines ps -p $(pidof dbengXX) -o args ps -p $(pidof dbsrvXX) -o args

were XX is the version of the SQL Anywhere server i.e., dbeng17 / dbsrv17.
