Kernel Upgrade - Issue

Hello All,

I have upgraded the kernel 640 from 175 to 247.

1) After this activity when I run the command startsap it was not able to start saposcol.

2) When we run the command stopsap SAP was down but when i run ps -aef | grep -i sap it was showing many process of SAP.

As a soultion to this, I have implemented the note 809477 (replaced the startsap and stopsap in exe with the given attached files in note).

After this, when I give the command startsap, the saposcol is getting started but giving the following error.(touch: 0652-046 Cannot create /usr/sap//D00/work/dev_tp). PFB the details.

<Server>:<SID>adm 6> startsap

    Hi,

    and I wonder how is this related to Oracle. Do you know that you have posted it on the SAP on Oracle Forum?

    a little check.

    Can the user <SID>adm write on the directory /usr/sap//D00/work/?

    > touch /usr/sap//D00/work/pepe

    Check the authorizations and owners of the kernel you have installed.

    take a look at the startsap script and check what is trying to do after starting the DB

    Hi Nike,

    Once you complete copying the new kernel files in the exe directory, then you have run slibclean as root (or through sudo) and also you have run the saproot.sn script again as root for setting the permissions.

    /usr/sbin/slibclean

    /usr/local/adm/saproot.sh <SID>

    Run the above 2 commands as root and then try to startsap.

    Hope this helps you to resolve your issue.

    Cheers,

    Hari Kishan.

    Hi,

    It seems database is not available through R3trans. Please execute R3trans -d as <SIDADM> from App server and check the trans.log.

    Also; you should change the permissions of saposcol and change the owner to Root.

    Hope this will help

    Hi Nike,

    This is a bug in 247 patch. Recently we upgraded our kernel patch level to 247. After upgradation we faced same issue that SAPOSCOL is not getting started with startsap script.

    Then we have checked the same with file permissions etc. didnt work.

    It is getting started manully with any user, but didnt automatically with startsap script.

    SAP propossed to download latest startsap script and apply.

    To be frank we didnt check with the latest startsap script.

    Regards

    Nick Loy

    Hi,

    _touch: 0652-046 Cannot create /usr/sap//D00/work/dev_tp._

    We are also facing the same problem even after replacing the latest startsap & stopsap. After debugging I found there is issue with save_tplog() function in startsap script. Time being I have change this function with old save_tplog() function.

    It is working perfectly for me.

    But I am also raising an OSS message for this error.

    Regards,

    Sachin Rane.
