Database SID must be started on remote server

Hi

I installed DB(host A) and CI(host B) on separate server when I try to startsap with <sid>adm on host B.

It found as the following message.

<sid>adm% startsap

Checking SID Database

-


Database is not available via R3trans

Database SID must be started on remote server

Log on to remote server and start database

Could I startsap with single command (only 1 step) from host B (CI) with no action to startdb manually on host A?

Best regards,

Choosak B.

    Hello Choosak,

    This is distributed installation. Here you don't start sap like this . You need to start DB first explicitily.

    Installation guide is very cleatr about ( in case you read it !). The installation guide for ERP6 EHP4 states clearly:

    In a distributed system, proceed as follows:

    1.On the database host, enter:

    startdb

    2.On the central services and on the central instance host, enter:

    startsap

    Regards.

    Hi,

    I had the same issue after a Kernel Upgrade.

    I found r/w permissions on the AIX /sapmnt/SID/exe/uc and below were wrong.

    I did a chmod 755 * -R and it corrected the issue.

    Hope that helps you guys.
