SAP management console doesnt show any instances

Hi,

I installed CE recently and it seemed to be working fine. But today I have been running into trouble with the SAP management console. When I open the SAP management console it shows no instances and is empty. I tried to start the server from SAP Netweaver Composition Environment 7.1 > Application server J01 (CE1) > Start Application Server and it fails also giving me this message

===================================================

============== Starting System CE1 ================

===================================================

=============== Starting database instance ...

>>The requested service has already been started.

>>More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2182.

>>The MaxDB Database Starter, Version 7.6.02.09

>>Copyright 2000-2007 by SAP AG

>>OK

>>============== Starting central services instance ...

>>03.07.2007 10:28:20

>>Start

>>FAIL: The system cannot find the file specified., CreateFile failed in plugin_pi

>>pefopen()

>>03.07.2007 10:28:20

>>StartWait

>>FAIL: The system cannot find the file specified., CreateFile failed in plugin_pi

>>pefopen()

>>============== Start operation failed !

>>Press any key to continue . . .

And surprisingly I am not able to see any logs for today, The last I can view them for is when I tried to start the application yesterday.

I also tried to go through the composition tool set up again where it could lead me to a screen to start the server , but had no luck , it didnot give me any information about the CE instances at all.

Any help in this regard would be really appreciated it.

Thanks so much

Regards

Roopa

    Hi Roopa,

    Follow this...

    Execute sapstartsrv.exe from one of the following paths

    fill with your system details, select your START profile

    from \usr\sap\<SID>\PROFILE\START*, use your Service user and password (your as <hostname>\SAPService<Sid>)

    \usr\sap\<sid>\SYS\exe\uc\NTI386

    \usr\sap\<SID>\SYS\exe\run

    Now Check MMC

    Thanks & Regards,

    Venkat.
