Problem starting Database SAP 7.51 Developer

354 Views Last edit Sep 27, 2017 at 06:42 PM 3 rev

I managed to install ABAP 7.51 for developers, the installation finished successfully, however it couldnt start the database.

When the installation finished it showed:

"Database must be started first

Installation of NPL successful"

If i do a "startsap ALL" i get:

"Checking DB database

Database is not available via R3trans

Database db must be started first

Logon to remote server and start database"

If i do a "startdb" i ge (after waiting for a long time)

"Error: starting database failed.

stardb DB start failed

check startdb logfile in home directory of user sybnpl /usr/sap/NPL/SYS/exe/uc/linuxx86_64/startdb: Terminating with error code 13"

if i do a "R3trans -d" i get:

..."no connect possible: "environment variable dbms_type is not set""

How do i set it?

Could anyone advice?

Thank you
