SAPinst GUI problem

I am trying to install a database instance for SAP Netweaver 7.0 (2004s) SR2 with oracle 10g on HP-UX IA64 platform. I created an installation directory and from there ran the sapinst which gives the following error on the initial GUI screen:

SAPinst is not available on localhost:21200

Connection to SAPinstAdaptor could not be established, see following messages:

Coul not connect to host localhost on port 21200.

.ConnectionException: Connection Refused (errno:239)

Can anyone please guide me on this asap.

    Hi,

    Pl. make sure that this particular port :21200 is open and is not blocked by any anti virus or network team. Make sure about the correct right's on that folder.

    Regards,

    Hari.

    If this port is already used by another service you must start SAPinst as follows:

    ./sapinst SAPINST_DIALOG_PORT=<free_port_number>

    Hi

    I had the same problem on an AIX system. What output do you get when you type JAVA -version or JAVA -fullversion as user root?

    if you get a warning regarding the "ulimit unlimited then you should enter the command.

    regards

    hi murat,

    i get the proper java version on typing in the command..of course the path should be set along with java home..

    My problem seems to be the occupation of the port 21200..sapinst is not able to communicate with the gui on 21200..i tried random ports but with same error..if anyone knows the solution please type in..

      Hi,

      Chk which service is using port 21200.

      netstat -an|grep 21200

      kill the sapinst process and then try again

      ps -eaf|grep -i sapinst

      kill -9 <PID>

      or

      close all sessions and try again

      or

      or start sapinst with a free port number (eg 6000 may be !)

      If the above does not work ..then follow the steps in the installation guide where u can connect to the gui server by using other options.

      u need to use : Startinstgui.sh - port <free port>

      Please follow the inst guide for the proper procedure.

    I am running into same problem as Viren, i have gone through the installation guide and tried couple of free ports. interestingly the gui server connects to 21212 but not the gui to 21200. My platform too is AIX 5.300-6

    Do not log to the server as root user. Log onto the server as app user. I had same problem when I logged as a root user. I switched to an app user then the problem disappear.
