SAP instance start issue

Hi All ,

We have done a copy of our sap system in another environment . (Doing it first time)

Once the process got over, when we try to initiate the sap machine by using command sidadm> startsap pf=/sapmnt/SID/profile/SID_DVEBMGS00_ip-253-23-50-568 ,got below error .

Database db must be started first

Log on to remote server and start database

So tried to start database (Database is sybase) by using command startdb , this is the log file error details .

starting database SID ...

checking required environment variables

check if Sybase ASE processes are running

ASE instance not available

There are no Sybase processes running -

Database is probably already stopped.

check if Sybase Backupserver is running

Backupserver instance not available

Database not available

parse level 0: identified message 'Database 'master' is now online.'

parse level 1: identified message 'Database 'tempdb' is now online.'

parse level 2: identified message 'Database 'sybsystemprocs' is now online.'

/usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/run/startdb was killed or interrupted. Terminating.

Please any input , what could be the issue .

Regards ,

Prabin

    Hi Prabin,

    You need to check the below values in your instance and default profile.

    SAPLOCALHOST = <it will a name of the host where CI is running>

    SAPDBHOST = <it will be name of the host where database is running>

    With Regards

    Hi Prabin

    as i understand your OS level is Linux , first kindly you should know that SAP system depend on host name to start , so you need to do some steps before start the system again

    • first change hosts ( login as root ) to the new host name

    • go to network setting in Linux and change the host name from (old host name to the new host name - ( login as root )


    • Then go to terminal and start sap (login as SIDadm) usinf command startsap all

    Hi Prabin.

    I think once you are change the host name at OS level, SAP system will not start. You have to perform the SAP standard System copy method (Homogeneous system Copy method) to bring another environment.

    You can clone the system with same hostname and SID in the private network(Not on live network.).

    Regards
