After applying SPS using SUM unable to start additional application instances

Hello All,

We are on EP (Only Java) - NW 730 SPS 08. I have applied SPS to SPS12 using SUM tool (We are having total of 5 application instances - 1 CI + 4 additional application insatnce)

As part of last step in Execution phase, when tool tried starting all applications except CI other are not coming up

I tried manually starting them - In JCMON i see the bootstrap is in Stopped status, however dev_bootstrap log says that it successfully finished with RC 0

F  [Thr 140259627857664] *** LOG => SfCJavaVm: exit hook is called. (rc = 0)

F

F [Thr 140260318033760] Mon Jan 12 10:09:19 2015

F  [Thr 140260318033760] *** LOG => exiting (exitcode 0, retcode 0).

M  [Thr 140260318033760] CCMS: CCMS Monitoring Cleanup finished successfully.

i tried with option mentioned in note - 710663 - AS Java Bootstrap Synchronization. but with no luck

With no errors seen anywhere i am having a hard time to understand the issue

Could you guys please assist?

Thanks,

Subbu

    Hi Subbu,

    So you are near (but not reached) the end of upgrade process in SUM.

    Does SUM complain about DIs that they can't start?

    If so, it means SUM is really trying to start all instances (CI + DIs).

    Then you can check in configtool and make sure all the instances are out of safe mode.

    BR, Tom

    • Hi Subbu,

      First of all thanks for the update, and it's glad to hear the issue is gone.

      As per my understanding, SUM should bring down all the instances during *downtime* automatically or at least prompt you to do so.

      (But on the other hand - was SCS (supposed to be) running? If SCS is down, all DIs will be down soon.

      If anything is still running - is that a 'downtime'?)

      I reviewed the upgrade guide but I did not yet notice such requirement of manual stop/start of AAS (DI).

      Not to mention switching SAFE Mode manually...

      Could it be possible that you have a in-homogeneous landscape?

      BR, Tom

    Hello All,

    I just conmpared the dev_jstart file with the sever which started perfectly fine (Main instance), i see this line (F  [Thr 140119685568352] *** CONFIG => instance is disabled.) in addtion to the one which started perfectly fine:

    Any suggestions where to check if the instance is disabled to start by SUM - not sure if SUM tool had skipped this step of enabling the instance

    dev_jstart file:

    Hi Subbu ,

    Please increase the bootstrap timeout parameter

    (JSTSG)(Kernel)Bootstrap-Exit556 - Java Server Troubleshooting Guide - SCN Wiki

    Also check the following SAP KBA

    Thanks ,
