Deployment exception : Cannot determine sdm host (is empty). error

Hi all,

i have installed the NW2004 s sneek preview. Trying to deploy a web dynpro application. Yesterday i was able to.

Today The deployment fails with the message

Deployment exception : Cannot determine sdm host (is empty). Please configure your engine/sdm correctly !

1) I am able to log on to SDM.

2) Can see SDM as running in sapmmc

2) the J2EE engine in the SAP netweaver developer studio shows SDM as green color

With parameters

state Running

Productive use No

Debug Off

Is there any problem with SDM. I have found quite a number of threads but knon could solve the problem. The problem looks more so complciated since I was able to deploy yesterday but am unable to today.

Appreciate any help

regards

Sam

    Hi Sameer,

    I too have that problem yesterday, Now its working fine.

    I suspect the reason could be due to the low memory.

    Please follow this solution:

    SDM feature "automatic start/stop of SAP J2EE Engine" was enabled (since SP6 release this is the default SDM behaviour) and timeout occurred while SDM tried to start/stop the engine. The default timeout is 180000 milliseconds(=3 minutes, from SP7 on it is increased to 30 minutes), so if the environment, where the engine is started/stopped, is with lower computing capabilities, then the process itself will be slower and the timeout should be increased.

    How to increase the timeout please refer to SAP Note# 739190.

    If this doesnt solve your problem, please paste the complete error message here, I will try to look.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Raj.

      Hi,

      Go to NWDS->Window->Preferences. Choose SAP J2EE Engine.

      you will see two radio buttons. Choose the second option ( ie on local host ) and browse and choose your engine.

      Press Apply Button.

      Hope this solves your issue.

      Regards,

      Venkat

    Guys,

    I have done that before I raised this thread. ( Set the J2EE server in the preferences).

    Still getting this error.

    Any suggestions?
