iASP and environment variables


We are in the process of implementing an ABAP+JAVA system to an iASP and we are running into a couple issues. The biggest issue we are having is that when we log in as <sid>OFR, the environment variables of the system are not being set for the user and we cannot start the system or really do anything to the system with that user. It's like it can't find the profile parameters or something. This is a 7.01 kernel system.

We have moved the following to the iASP:

- R3<sid>DATA database

- SAP<sid>DB database

- IFS (/usr/sap/<sid> and /sapmnt/<sid>)

- Kernel library

The following are sitting on *SYSBAS:

- R3<sid>400 library

- R3400 library

Has anyone had any issues like this when moving a system to an iASP?

    Hello Dale,

    are you using the VERY latest R3INLPGM/ILE patch ?

    Is SAPLOCALHOST set in the INSTANCE profile (not default profile) set properly ?

    Is dbs/db4/rdbname set in the default profile (not instance profile) ?

      Hello Volker,

      Yes we have those parameters in the profiles as you have them listed. We did solve the issue and the problem was that we didn't have the short host name pointed to the IP of the LPAR.

      LPAR Name (System Name) - BSEPRLD5

      Virtual Host - SMD

      In our host table entry we had: -


      So we needed to add an entry of the short host name of the system lpar name. So we added "bseprdl5" to point to the same IP address as the others.

      That solved the problem. Thanks for the response!
