Automatic startup of SAP Netweaver


I have installed SAP Netweaver CE 7.1 EHP1 with MII 12.1 on a Windows Server 2003 machine. At the moment I have to use the SAP Management Console to start the Netweaver after a reboot.

What I want to do now is to start Netweaver automatically after a reboot. In the Internet I found that SAP can be automatically started with start profiles and that the start profile will be created during installation in the directory usersapSYSProfile and the filename starts with START_. If I look to my installation no START_ files exists.

If I create the file e.g. START_J00_abfsap01 and include the parameter "Autostart = 1" in the file it has no effect. The system is not started automatically.

What did I wrong. Can anybody help me please?

      I would suggest you to write a script to start sap and schedule this script in Windows Scheduler to run once the system boots.

      Here's the sample script:

      D:\usr\sap\EC6\SYS\exe\uc\NTI386\startsap name=<SID> nr=<instance number> SAPDIAHOST=<hostname> pf=<path to ur instance profile>

      If you have CI and SCS, then you have to create respective entries in the scripts. Ensure to start your SCS before CI starts.

    you cannot create a file like this. it will not work.

    your instance is a JAVA instance only. Autostart parameter won't work.

    I recommended that you use SBK's solution
