Unable to start SAP Web Dispatcher

Hi,

I installed the SAP Web Dispatcher. Created the profile file using the sapwebdisp.exe -bootstrap. Now when I try to run it, it come out this error message.

*** FATAL: SAP Web Dispatcher process 9092 still alive
*** FATAL: I better exit now to prevent any damage. 

Please advise. Any setup I did wrongly?

Thanks.

    Hi,

    You still have a web dispatcher process running. Stop it or kill it.

    Regards,

    Don't know why you still use the old-fashion webdispatcher instllation "sapwebdisp.exe -bootstrap", you should be able to ininstall it with SAPINST.

    Cheers,

      Sure you can do that, it should be possible since NW 7.0 under the category "standalone enginse". the advantage of using -bootstrap option is that you can install web dispatcher under whatever OS user you want, with SAPINST it's installed under <sid>adm, the <sid> is the system id of your webdispatcher rather than the ABAP or JAVA system web dispatcher connected.

      Cheers,

    Hi,

    after issuing the command: sapwebdisp.exe -bootstrap

    the SAP Web Dispatcher gets configured (profile file created) and is started. The program won't get stopped after the configuration is finished. The SAP Web Dispatcher is still running. You don't need to start it.

    br,
