Hi All,

I have installed SAP NPL -ABAP 7.51SP02 on my windows 10 laptop .

I have installed Virtual box over windows 10 and inside Virtual Box SAP instance is running.

SAP GUI is installed on Windows 10 outside virtual box.

After installing, first time , i was able to log on to the SAP Gui . But after that I am continuously getting this error.

Connection to partner broken

WSAECONNRESET: Connection reset by peer

I have variuos solution from Internet but none of them work and few of them I was not able to understand.

I checked sapcontrol -nr 00 -function GetProcessList from linux temrinal and it says that "Disp_work,Dispatcher ,Gray Stopped".

I thought this could be the problem as suggested in various posts.

But I am not aware of how to start the Dispatcher from Linux terminal or any other place.

Please let me know this and your help would be much appreciated.disp.png

in the working directory of the SAP instance are placed a couple of log files (ie. startsap.log). Do you see any relevant error messages?

Hi Uwe,

It is a kind of strange problem.

Sometime , it is started and most of the time it says "Dispatcher stopped".

It started yesterday and now it is stopped.

I have checked "/home/npladm/startsap_ASCS_01.log" and "/home/npladm/startsap_D0.log"

these seems ok. those state that "Instance on host vhcalnplci is started", No error message.

Can you please let me know how to access these directories?

Thanks for your help!!

Hello Pavan,

You can use stopsap startsap from linux terminal with sidadm user.

You can use sapcontrol to stop and start the system. Check the parameters of sapcontrol just running without any parameter. (login linux with sidadm user)

You can use install SAP MMC on a windows terminal. Add the SAP System and stop-start system using SAP MMC.

I am suffering from exactly the same situation. Is there any newer help around?
