SAP not running, disp+work, Dispatcher, GRAY, Stopped, , , 7670

Hi,

I'm trying to install an ABAP AS environment on OpenSuSE 42.3 as per this link: https://blogs.sap.com/2017/09/04/newbies-guide-installing-abap-as-751-sp02-on-linux/.

When i try to start SAP with the npladm account i receive the following output:

Checking syb Database Database is running ------------------------------------------- Starting Startup Agent sapstartsrv OK Instance Service on host vhcalnplci started ------------------------------------------- starting SAP Instance ASCS01 Startup-Log is written to /home/npladm/startsap_ASCS01.log ------------------------------------------- /usr/sap/NPL/ASCS01/exe/sapcontrol -prot NI_HTTP -nr 01 -function Start Instance on host vhcalnplci started Starting Startup Agent sapstartsrv OK Instance Service on host vhcalnplci started ------------------------------------------- starting SAP Instance D00 Startup-Log is written to /home/npladm/startsap_D00.log ------------------------------------------- /usr/sap/NPL/D00/exe/sapcontrol -prot NI_HTTP -nr 00 -function Start Instance on host vhcalnplci started

Which looks good i think. However, when i run ss -nlp | grep 3300 or ss -nlp | grep 3200, nothing shows up.

When i run sapcontrol -nr 00 -function GetProcessList i get this:

08.04.2018 19:57:12 GetProcessList OK name, description, dispstatus, textstatus, starttime, elapsedtime, pid igswd_mt, IGS Watchdog, GREEN, Running, 2018 04 08 19:30:32, 0:26:40, 7671 disp+work, Dispatcher, GRAY, Stopped, , , 7670

I assume this is why I can't access SAP. How can I start disp+work or find out why it is not starting?

Kind regards,

Sven.

    Hi Sven,

    is your DB running (run R3trans -d)? Did you check dev_w0?

    Kind regards,

    Martin

    Hi Sven,
    How are you starting the system? Note that scripts startsap and stopsap are deprecated, you can either use SAP Management Console (SAP MC) or the SAP command sapcontrol.
    See Note #1763593 - Starting and stopping SAP system instances - startsap/stopsap are deprecated

    Based on the command output you provided, ASCS01 and D00 servers (both running on host vhcalnplci) were correctly started.
    Command "sapcontrol -nr 00 -function GetProcessList" shows Dispatcher stopped, please provide here complete dev_disp trace, so that I can check why it didn't start.
    What does command "sapcontrol -nr 01 -function GetProcessList" show? Is ASCS correctly started?

    I am suffering from the same situation, after having successfully installed NPL on openSUSE within VirtualBox on Windows 10 Pro. Is there any help around?

    • Hello Manjunath Hanmantgad,

      the problem came up with nw abap trial version 751 on openSUSE Leap 15.0 within VirtualBox 5.2.14. Since then I uninstalled that and installed on openSUSE Leap 42.3. With this, the problem did not come up.

      Sorry that I cannot attach the trace file any more (that might have given some insight of the internals).

      Kind regards, Heiner
