Problem starting server

I have successfully installed NetWeaver Preview edition SP15 and tested it by starting and connecting to the WWW server. Later, when I restarted the machine, I found that some Windows services were automatically configured to start. Since I was not planning to use NetWeaver all the time and since the services were slowing down my machine I

stopped the services and configured all of them to be started manually.

Now, if I restart the machine and if I start the server from mgmt console, it is not starting. The developer trace on jcontorl.exe process shows:

[Thr 1628] *** ERROR => invalid return code of process [bootstrap] (exitcode=66) [jstartxx.c 1452]

[Thr 1628] JControlExecuteBootstrap: error executing bootstrap node [bootstrap] (rc=66)

[Thr 1628] JControlCloseProgram: started (exitcode = 66)

[Thr 1628] JControlCloseProgram: good bye... (exitcode=66)

The Database is in online mode. I started a few services manually to check if that solved the problem. Some services started and some did not. The list of NetWeaver services and their status are as follows:

SAP DB WWW Started

SAPDB: .M750018 Stopped

SAPDB: .M750018 (omststknl.exe) Stopped

SAPDB: .M750018 (quick) Stopped

SAPDB: .M750018 (slow) Stopped

SAPDB: J2E Started

SAPDB: J2E (omststknl.exe) Stopped

SAPDB: J2E (quick) Stopped

SAPDB: J2E (slow) Stopped


SAPJ2E_00 Started

SAPJ2E_01 Started

SAPOsCol Started

The output of sapdb\data\wrk\.M750018\knldiag is as follows:

I am logging in to Windows as the same Admin user who installed NetWeaver.

Could you please let me know how I can start the server?

    Hi Daisy,

    Please look at the system.log file in bootstrap folder. It'll give you the reason for the problem. Looking at the exit code, it seems the database is not running. Please check it once again.



    P.S: Award points if you find this useful.

      Problem solved. There was a Windows service called 'XServer' that had not been started. Once this was started, the NetWeaver server also started.
