SNC: Could't acquire ACCEPTING credentials for


I did a homogeneous migration of a SAP system to another server, but the SID and SERVERNAME changed.

Now I need to start up the system with the same parameters as the old system.

The system starts fine, except when I enter the SNC parameters in the profile of the previous system:

(I did fix the server name and SID below)

snc/enable = 1

snc/gssapi_lib = /usr/lib64/

snc/data_protection/max = 1

snc/data_protection/min = 1

snc/data_protection/use = 1

snc/identity/as = p:SAP/

snc/accept_insecure_cpic = 1

snc/accept_insecure_gui = 1

snc/accept_insecure_rfc = 1

snc/permit_insecure_start = 1

snc/permit_insecure_comm = 1

When I start SAP with the SNC parameters, all the work processes die, failure reason is:

I have fixed the SNC name in SM30, VSNCSYSACL:

Kindly advise what I can do to get this system started with the SNC parameters? It is a SAP Gateway system.

Best Regards
