Installation of SAP SolMan 4.0 SR2 on AIX 5.3/Oracle


We have already installed SolMan 4.0 successfully in our dev sys--so we know this can be done. Now we are trying to start the sapinst to install our prod system and can't get the SAPInstGUI to recognize the sapinst running on the same server.

We have:

-installed the newest IBM JDK 1.4.2 SR8

-set SAPINST_JRE_HOME=/usr/java14_64/


When we run ./sapinst as root, it stops, apparently waiting for the GUI:

Starting GuiServer using:

/usr/java14_64/bin/java -cp /mnt/temp/sapinst_exe.360628.1190411815/JAR/instgui.jar:/mnt/temp/sapinst_exe.360628.1190411815/JAR/inqmyxml.jar SDTServer config=jar:sdtserver.xml guiport=21212 sapinsthost=localhost sapinstport=21200

load resource pool /mnt/bs2005/BS_2005_SR2_SAP_Installation_Master/IM_AIX_PPC64/resourcepool.xml

guiengine: no GUI connected; waiting for a connection on host r09prd01, port 21200 to continue with the installation

We have als attempted to start using ./sapinst -nogui and ./sapinst SAPINST_START_GUI=false, which gives the same message. We then try to start the SAPInstGUI as <SID>adm, the GUI will generate a screen with the following message:

"Could not connect to host r09prd01 on port 21212. A remote host refused an attempted connect operation."

What are we missing to get this install started?
