SAPROUTER CONFIGURATION

Hi,

I have done the installation and configuration of sap router to a complete, but when i try to start the sap router service i get the error "windows could not start saprouter service on local computer error 5: access denied".

upon checking the saprouter logs i have noticed that SAPROUTTAB file file is missing.

The saprouter logs

SAP Network Interface Router, Version 40.4 command line arg 0:C:\usr\sap\saprouter\saprouter.exe command line arg 1:-r command line arg 2:-R command line arg 3:C:\usr\sap\saprouter\SAPROUTTAB main: pid = 9072, ppid = 0, port = 3299, parent port = 0 (0 = parent is not a saprouter) *** ERROR => fopen 'C:\usr\sap\saprouter\SAPROUTTAB' (2: No such file or directory) [nirout.cpp 10699] ***LOG Q0I=> NiRRouttab: fopen (2: ENOENT*: No such file or directory OR: The system cannot find the file specified.) [D:/depot/bas/745_REL/src/base/ni/nirout.cpp 10701] cannot open 'C:\usr\sap\saprouter\SAPROUTTAB': all routing disabled!!! Could not open permission table.

Kindly assist on resolving the problem.

Thank you.

    It looks like the saprouter can't access the saprouttab file. Please ensure the file exist in the specified path and the user running saprouter has access to the file.

    Hello Haron,

    "... command line arg 3:/C:\usr\sap\saprouter\saprouttab ..."

    It seems that the path to your saprouttab is still incorrect. Notice the leading "/" just before the "C:\...".

    You need to change the service definition ("services.msc") or delete/recreate the service.

    Hi,

    You need to create saprouttab file at the location /usr/sap/saprouter if not already present.

    Please go through below blog...

    • Hi Haron,

      I suspect the command you executed has incorrect arguements.

      ******Error

      Before:

      fopen 'C:\usr\sap\saprouter\SAPROUTTAB' (2: No such file or directory)

      After:

      fopen '/C:\usr\sap\saprouter/saprouttab' (22: Invalid argument)

      Regards,

    hi guys.

    I did the changes as per your instruction but the service is not starting, still getting access denied error 5.

    checking on the log

    SAP Network Interface Router, Version 40.4 command line arg 0:saprouter command line arg 1:-r command line arg 2:-R command line arg 3:/C:\usr\sap\saprouter\saprouttab main: pid = 6768, ppid = 0, port = 3299, parent port = 0 (0 = parent is not a saprouter) *** ERROR => fopen '/C:\usr\sap\saprouter\saprouttab' (22: Invalid argument) [nirout.cpp 10699] ***LOG Q0I=> NiRRouttab: fopen (22: EINVAL*: Invalid argument OR: The device does not recognize the command.) [D:/depot/bas/745_REL/src/base/ni/nirout.cpp 10701] cannot open '/C:\usr\sap\saprouter\saprouttab': all routing disabled!!! Could not open permission table

    Invalid argument.

    Might be that i did the configuration of the router wrongly

    kind regards
