Unable to create DTR workspace folder

I just recently installed a NetWeaver AS Java 7.50 and wanted to create a workspace folder in DTR using the instructions provided at

I enabled administrative functionality as described there and provided the credentials of the default "Administrator" user. However, after entering a workspace folder name, NWDS just reports: "(Could not create workspace folder) [Error DI.dtr.253003]"

Trying to use the DTR Shell as an alternative, I created a Run Configuration as described at

After connecting, I issued

mkws -F -w //test

to create a workspace folder called "test", which takes a very long time to respond and then replies

The workspace folder could not be created Creating workspace folder 'test' failed.

Unfortunately, the error message does not say why it failed. Does anyone have an idea what I am missing?

    Hi Szabolcs,

    thanks a lot for your detailed instructions. I fulfilled all the prerequisites.

    The actual issue was that this was a fresh installation of AS Java with SAPDB, and the DB log area was full. After configuring the DB properly, I could create workspaces just as expected.

    Thanks anyway,

    Hi Andreas,

    I just reproduced the issue with NWDS 7.5.

    What I can suggest to make sure for the following things:

    -You are using NWDS 7.5
    -The User you are using to create the folder in NWDS is added to group NWDI.Administrators
    -The DTR Perspective has switched to administrative mode.

    If none of the previous hints helped I would ask to provide some screenshots how you are trying to create the WS folder and I can suggest to check the NWDS .log file what you can reach via HELP--> Support information (Then select a path where a file will be generated.). In this .zip you can find the .log file where you can find further information from the errors which are documented by NWDS.

    It might be also useful to share the error from the .log file with us.

    Best regards,
