Java instance failed

Dear community,

Recently I installed SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment 7.1.

During the installation I received an error that java 1.6.0 is not supported

thereof I installed jdk_1.5.0_12 and the installation finished successfully.

Every time when I start an Application Server I encounter

a problem i.e. I receive a log in command prompt:

====== Starting java instance ...

05.08.2007. 03:31:31

Start OK

05.08.2007. 03:34:32


FAIL : Timeout

======= Start operation timed out !

Press any key to continue ...

What does cause java instance to FAIL ?

thanks in advance,

    Hi Nikola

    It is hard to identify the reason without looking at the log files.

    Have you checked;


    /usr/sap/<SID>/<InstID>/j2ee/cluster/dispatcher/log/* (latest default


    /usr/sap/<SID>/<InstID>/j2ee/cluster/server<n>/log/* (latest default
