Service in SICF can not be excuted

  1. start of configuration description #############*

HA configuration

Dual stack, Java Add-in (BI Java and EP) installation based on NW04s BW ABAP

Hostname = SAPDB (Central instance, DB+CI on this server, no DI)

Virtual Hostname = sapdbserv


NAT for this server on server side and on client side

CI instance = 10 (DVEBMGS10)

Kernel 201 with ABAPBASISJava patch level 19

  1. end of configuration description #############*

Our problem:

in SMICM, ICM (http port 8010) work well. works. works.

in SICF, when I test ping (and all others), then I get error

"404 Not found

The requested resource does not exist" in

When I shutdown Java, test ping again then I got error

"503 Service not available



Detail: Cannot reach external Application Server on localhost:51000"

Not sure why HTTP service is redirected to Java port. Actually there is not log info. recorded in java default trace even Java is running.

When I set trace level = 1(default), no info in dev_icm. When I set trace level = 3, got long log file in dev_icm but no clue for HTTP 404 error.

I noticed note 1292397 which is similar but it does not solve our problem.

*) Seems not a network problem

*) Enough spare space in FS

*) License OK

*) Gateway OK

Any suggestion?

    You need to go to SICF and activate the service.

    Then only you will be able to use any of the webservices.

    For that matter /sap/public/ping needs to be activated too.

      I don't really understand your HA configuration. Is this a 2 nodes cluster ? If yes why is there only one alias.

      I use a SAP R/3 4.7 system running on a Windows 2003 MSCS cluster.

      We have 2 DNS aliases for it : one for the SAP CI and one for the Oracle database.

      Each of these 2 DNS aliases has its own virtual IP address.

      example : sapalias.domain.xx for SAP CI

      dbalias.domain.xx for oracle DB

      The icm/host_name_full parameter is set to sapalias.domain.xx

      To be able to use BSP applications, we have to use the FQDN in the URL.

      Like : http://sapalias.domain.xx:port/sap/bc/bsp/sap/z_mybsp

      On a dual stack system, usually you use the ABAP HTTP port in all URLs and it is the job of the ICM to direct the processing to the abap stack (all URLs beginning with /sap) or to the java stack (all other URLs).

    This is caused by incorrect paramenter setting of "icm/dpj2ee = true". This is set in DEFAULT.PFL and I did not noticed this.
