Sneak Preview SAPNetweaver 2004 Slim Edition hang on step 5 of 24

Hi,

I am installing SAP Netweaver 2004 Slim Edition and it hang halfway through on step 5. It is about hours++ without any response, but the weird thing from Task manager can see the sapinst.exe keep busy on 100% CPU.

My system is WinXP SP1, Physical Memory 512 MB RAM, Virtual 1024 MB RAM and 9 GB Harddisk space free.

I am using j2sdk1.4.2_08.

I am using user with administrator right.

Below is the log

    Hi Herry,

    This issue looks likely to be memory related. For any SAP installation it is advisable that you use nomrally 1 GB of memory. Also the virtual memory 1024 MB is quite low. This is the reason for which the installation is hanging up. Try to increase both the phyisical as well as virtual memory of your server and then restart the installation from the last point where it hung up.

    Regards.

    HHI Lim

    Check for the ports 3201,3601,50000,50030 if exists follow the below steps.

    The file C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc\services (Windows 2000) or C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\services (Windows XP) must not include an entry for the ports 3201, 3601 and 50000 to 50030. A possible entry can be excluded by using the hash symbol (#). (just check whther for the above ports)

    Regards

    Hi,

    Ensure that you have met the pre-requsite

    1.Operating system: Windows 2000 (Service Pack 3); Windows XP Professional (Service Pack 1) or Windows Server 2003

    2.NTFS-File systems

    3.Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher or Firefox 1.0 or higher

    5.Intel Pentium III/1.1 GHz or higher (or compatible)

    6.Min. 512MB, recommended 1GB RAM, Intel Pentium III/1.1 GHz or higher, 2GB hard disc space

    7.High-resolution monitor (1024x768 or higher, 256 colors)

    8. Sun Microsystems J2SE SDK version 1.4.2_08 (Sun JDK 1.5 not tested). You can download this from Sun Microsystems at http://java.sun.com/products/archive/j2se/1.4.2_08/index.html. Please note that version 1.4.2_10 may cause installation problems.

    9. If you have SAP products already installed on your computer, ensure that none are called "J2E".

    10. The file C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc\services (Windows 2000) or C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\services (Windows XP) must not include an entry for the ports 3601, 3201 and 50000 to 50030. A possible entry can be excluded by using the hash symbol (#).

    11. If no DHCP server is available on your network (which dynamically determines the IP address) or your computer is not connected to any network, you need to install the virtual interface adapter MS Loopback Adapter. This is described in detail within the contents of the download package.

    12. To use Interactive Forms based on Adobe software, you must install the necessary credential file and activate it using a unique password. Download the latest credential and password from SDN.

    Cheers
