SAPINST issue with ECC 6.0 on Unix

Hi,

I am trying to do installation of ECC 6.0 SR3 on Unix Server (HP-UX 11.31). I have set DISPLAY, JAVA_HOME & SAPINST_JRE_HOME environmen. Also host file entries are correct as below:

Private IP Address <hostname>

Public IP Address <hostname>

127.0.0.1 localhost loopback

but there is some issue with sapinst

  1. ./sapinst

[==============================] \ extracting... done!

Starting GuiServer using:

/opt/java1.4/bin/java -Xmx256M -Djava.security.egd=file:/dev/urandom -cp /tmp/sapinst_exe.6532.1265341275/JAR/instgui.jar:/tmp/sapinst_exe.6532.1265341275/JAR/inqmyxml.jar SDTServer config=jar:sdtserver.xml guiport=21212 sapinsthost=localhost sapinstport=21200 guistart=true

init: retrieving account information for group sapinst...

init: retrieving account information done.

load resource pool /sapbackup/software/Inst_Master/BS_2005_SR3_SAP_Installation_Master/IM_HPUX_IA64/resourcepool.xml

guiengine: No GUI server connected; waiting for a connection on host saharah, port 21200 to continue with the installation

It remains at this stage only and not continuing.

Kindly suggest.

Regards

Manish

    Hi,

    Just check that on terminal window "DISPLAY, JAVA_HOME & SAPINST_JRE_HOME" these variables are configured and "active"

    #echo $DISPLAY
    #echo $JAVA_HOME
    #echo $SAPINST_JRE_HOME

    some time it happens that even though you configure the variables in login profile, it doesn't appear to be active in terminal window. I have faced this problem on some of the servers.

    if this is the case, just do "su - root" again and check the variable values.

    Make it sure that DISPLAY varible contain IP Address of your client system, not SERVER.

    All the best...

    Regards.

    Hello Manish,

    If you dont think its a port issue then pls check whether data, stack size etc are configured to right value for root user.

    Pls try with " ulimit -d = unlimied " .. similaraly you can adjust values for other parameters like stack size etc.

    Pls refer the installation guide for more details.

    Hope this is useful to you.

    Best Regards

    Umesh

    Hi.

    Check your path to sapinst file.

    Whole path shouldn't have more than 64 signs.

    Best Regards
