SSM Install - Unable to find SERVERPATH in lsserver.ini

Please see attached, screen shot for the error message we are getting when we try to run the Application Server Administrator (PASAdmin.exe) after completing the install.

The error message indicates that the SERVERPATH in lsserver.ini cannot be found and yet it is in the .ini file (also included in the snapshot).

There were no errors during the installation. We have also reinstalled a number of times. All post install steps and installation guide details have been followed to the letter.

This is obviously a very frustrating error since it's got us stopped in our tracks. HELP!

    Solution was to install SP09 (see below). The error then disappeared.

    xSSMSrv09_0-10012679.exe SP09 for SAP STR. MGM. APP. SER. 10.1

    We are now getting port issue 8325 when trying to assign models. Any ideas???

      Hi again,

      first of all, i am a consultant, and have no connections within SAP.

      Have you tried the model connection in "Administration" / "Manage Models" and it's working there?

      You have a "CBADMIN" user in application server, with correct permissions?

      Can you log in to the ApplicationServer, and issue a "USE INITIAL"? (This checks that the AS has a model called INITIAL, and that it is accessible)

      I don't have the SW installed anywhere near me, so this is only from the top of my head...

    Dear Pedro,

    From your error message I can see that the server path line is missing from the lsserver.ini file. Please check it. Caottapp01 is the server name? you can keep it as local if you are installing the PAS on the Windows Server.

    you mentioned updating the PAS. Have you removed the lsserver.ini file from the installation dir of PAS before upgrading it. If you have followed the upgrade process you will not have the port issues. Hope this helps you.

    For your reference I am pasting the lsserver.ini file

    DBHOME=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\HOME
    PAGEDB=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\HOME\PAGEDB
    MASTERDB=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\DATA\MASTERDB
    LOCKFILE=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\DATA\LSSLOCK
    JUICE=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\DATA\JUICE.ENG
    TBDB=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\DATA\TBDB.ENG
    APLIB=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\DATA\APLIB
    LIBDB=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\DATA\APLIB
    CGLIB=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\DATA\CGLIB
    SMREPORT=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\DATA\SMREPORT
    INITIAL=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\DATA\INITIAL
    DBPATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\InternetPub\Procs;C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\HOME;C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\DATA
    LOGS=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer\LOGS

    SERVERPATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Strategy Management\ApplicationServer


    Thanking you
