Regd. SAP Netweaver 7.0 & BI


I'm new to SAP and i want to learn SAP BI. For this i've downloaded "SAP Netweaver 7.0 Java VMWare" trial version. Is this the correct package or should i download "SAP NetWeaver 7.0 - Java and ABAP Trial Version on Linux - VMware Edition"

Also, after starting "SAP Netweaver 7.0 Java VMWare" the J2EE server stops automatically after some time. How to restart this service in SUSE linux environment.

Thanks for your kind assistance.

    Hi Sathis,

    You can use this version you've downloaded, however you probably will have install the BI components as well (which should be available as trial version too).

    Regarding the engine is going down after a while, you have to analyze the logs from the directory: ../<SID>/<InstID>/work/*

    Check specially the dev_jcontrol (and then the other dev_, std_ and jvm_* files), which should provide you the reason of the shutdown (e.g: some exitcode number)

    To restart the engine, you can use the commands 'startsap' or 'sapstart' (one is the executable and the other is a script file).

    I hope this can help you.

    Best regards,

    Matheus Zeuch
