my first sap steps with 'NW 2004s ABAP Trial Version'

hi all!

i tried to install the 'NW 2004s ABAP Trial Version' from the book 'ABAP Objects ABAP-Programmierung mit SAP NetWeaver'. i'm using WinXP SP2 on a VMware image. the windows installation is a german (austria) default installation - the firewall is disabled.

the installer will finish successfully, but i can't access the database from the SAP Management Console. (Console Root.SAP Systems.NSP.vm_winxp.Logon: Server Name=localhost; Database Name=NSP; User Name=control; Password=myPwdFrmTheSetup --> the error 'Invalid Session ID!' will be shown. if i use a wrong parameter like Password=unknown, i see the message '-24950 ERR_USRFAIL: User authorization failed')

at the last point in the d:\DOC\html\index.html on the cd (Getting started), i got the information 'The SAP System ID (SSID) is NSP with System Nr 00.' and i had to install the SAP GUI and create a new entry in SAP Logon for the system NSP with System Number 00 on localhost - i also failed a this point ...

in the Management Console i can see in the Process List, the the Process 'msg_server.EXE' is running, but the 'disp+work.EXE' is only running short time and then it will stop.

in the syslog i can see, many error messages, beginning like this:

Message ID: S10 - Communications data: Service initialization failed

Message ID: BY2 - Database: Database error -10709 at CON

Message ID: R19 - SAP-Basis System: Initialization DB-Connect Failed, Return Code 000256


i installed the maxdbtools from the cd (DBM76.exe and SQLSTD76.exe).

- with the 'Database Manager' i can add the database (Database Instance.Add... --> Add --> [i used the default values] NSP / / C:\sapdb\NSP\db --> OK) and also connect to there (User Name: control / Password: myPwdFrmTheSetup). after that i saw some system informations about the NSP database.

- with the 'SQL Studio' i cant connect to the database (Server: localhost / Database: NSP / User: CONTROL / Password: myPwdFrmTheSetup). the popup-message: 'ODBC-Error: [SAP AG][SQLOD32 DLL][MaxDB] Invalid authorization specification;-4008 POS(1) Unknown user name/password combination; return-code: SQL_ERROR (-4008)' will be shown.

this where my first steps with sap and i dont know with steps i should do next and i'm a littel bit confused with my experience today ...

pls can some one help!?

      the second day was a better day ...

      at my first installation i think i used to less memory and i saw also a name conflict in the Event Viewer. i installed the loopback adapter befor the installation, but disable it and only activated the vmware network adapter during the installation. after the installation i also tried to enable only the loopback adapter, but that make no different AFTER the installation.

      at my second insatllation i:

      - installed the loopback adapter and disabled the vmware network adapter.

      - renamed the computer name (because the name conflict)

      - also used more pysical and virtual memory

      and then it worked fine.

      over the night i run a other installation, without the loopback adapter and using the vmware network adapter and it also worked fine.

      i think the problem was the computer name conflict.

      thx, markus
