Error in starting MDM Server from MDM Console

Hi,

I have installed SAP MDM 5.5 SP05 on Windows 2003 Server.

When i try to start the MDM Server (i.e. MDM Service) from the MDM console it gives me the following error:

<i>Error Starting apmdmd(MDM Server): The machine 'apmdmd' is not Windows-based. The MDM server cannot be started from this application; please use CLIX on the machine instead. </i>

But if i start the MDM Service manually and then mount the server, it works fine.

Kindly help.

Regards,

Chintan Sheth

      Chintan,

      I hope you will provide answers in the OSS message to the questions I had posted above, because all of that information will be needed in order to solve the problem (or at least determine what the problem is). If the problem is what I think it is, related to the function NetServerGetInfo, that function is no longer being used in SP5 Patch 2 Console.

      Regards,

      Cleopatra

    Hi ,

    I also installed SAP MDM SP05 . I got the same error as the one u got . I even tried to use CLIX to start the MDM server. But the MDM server never responded. The best way is as follows ( it worked for me )

    Remove all the MDM components from the System and also oracle . Re-install all the MDM components and oracle. While installing Check on the MDM server ( 32 or 64 bit ). Choose the correct one . Check the mds.ini and mdis.ini files. Now try mounting the MDM server on the MDM Console. It will mount and u can aslo start the MDM server from the Console itself .You need not use the Clix to start the MDM Server. This should solve the issue .

      Hi Ramakanth,

      I am able to use CLIX to start MDM Server but not using console.

      I had also tried removing all MDM components and reinstalling it, but didnt work.

    Hi,

    In the MDM Console you may only use hostname, fqdn or ip number; not any type of aliases.

    Hi ,

    Can any one please tell me how to start the MDM from the console ? I have installed MDM5.5 SP04 on UNIX box. After the install, in the MDM_HOME/bin, I have CLIX. But, I have no idea how we get the MDM console. Please let me know.

    From CLIX, I am using the command " clix mdsStart hostname" to start the MDM, but then I get an error in the nohup.out as follows "Loading '/usr/sap/MD5/MDM/LangStrings/Networking.lang' (English)...

    bind() failed in ServerListeningSocket::Create() with errno 000000E2 : Address already in use\"Initialization failed, error code = 0x83000000"

    So, I am not sure what is wrong. Please help me start the MDM server.

    Your quick reply is highly appreciated. Thank you

      Hi Chaitan,

      <b>I faced the same problem Initailly.</b>

      I installed the MDM Server for windows and got the same error.

      I changed the logon credentails in services.msc and started the server once from services.msc
