    It looks like tp is not able to connect to the system. Could you please provide more logs for this phase?

    • Here is the error:

      TRACE-INFO: 22: [ dev trc,00000] Can't run non-UNICODE-DbSl against UNICODE database 3163 0.111647

      TRACE-INFO: 23: [ dev trc,00000] CheckCodepageType failed. Connect terminated. 29 0.111676

      It looks you updated non-unicode dbsl in your kernel while kernel is unicode. Please check.

    Hi Ish,

    1. Go to command prompt ans use R3trans -d aand paste the output over here.

    2. Check whether database is up or not.

    3. Check whether listener is running or not.

    4. Check the enc variables of your system like SAPLOCALHOST,SAPSYSTEMNAME,DBMS_TYPE etc.

    5. Check the entries of the hosts and services file.
