Error in /tmp/applianceagent/scripts/ Start database failed with exit code 2



I have set up the Demo appliance landscape for the openSAP course "Introduction to SAP Fiori UX", on AWS.

The frontend machine is OK, but the configuration and startup of the server machine has failed for some reason. When logging in with ssh to the server, this message is presented:

The Appliance Agent detected an error and terminated.

When asked, please provide the file /tmp/applianceagent_20141002-145658.tar.bz2.

Note that a restrictive iptables based firewall is still active.

I have attached the file (had to add .txt to the name to circumvent file type restrictions).

I noticed that the appliancedeploy.log ended with these lines:

Start database Execute /usr/sap/hostctrl/exe/sapcontrol -nr 02 -function StartWait 3600 20

FAIL: Timeout

error in /tmp/applianceagent/scripts/ Start database failed with exit code 2

Notice the 1 hour jump in time, and then the timeout error message.

Do any of you have any idea what could be causing this, and how to fix it?

Please let me know if you need any further information.

Best regards,
