SDM Problem installing SAP Netweaver EHP2


Hi experts, we are installing a Java Central Instance of SAP Netweaver 7.0 EHP2

in Windows Server 2008 64bits.We are using as database Oracle

and Java j2sdk1.4.2_29-x64. Our problem is that the SAPInst stops in the"Install Software units" phase.

The error is the following:

"An error occurred while processing option SAP NetWeaver 7.0 including

Enhancement Package 2 > SAP Application Server Java > Oracle > Central

System > Central System( Last error reported by the step :uncaught

exception: nw.sdm.deploymentErrorWithLog: SDM deployment failed for at

least one of the components to be deployed. SOLUTION: Check C:Program


for more information. (in script unknown, line 0: ???)). "

The error in the file callSdmViaSapinst.log is the following:

"Error: Aborted: development component 'irj'/''/'SAP AG'/'7.0203.20100204103010.0000'/'3', grouped by software component 'EPBC'/''/'SAP AG'/'1000.''/'3':

Caught exception while checking the login credentials for SAP J2EE Engine. Check whether the SAP J2EE Engine is up and running. ERROR: Cannot connect to Host: [] with user name:

Check your login information.

Exception is: Exception during getInitialContext operation. No server is running. "

We tried using Java and ABAP as UME provider and the same error occurs in both cases. And we are doing a local

installation using a user who is member of Administrators Group.

We have already tried the following:

1 Stop J2EE Engine

2 Start SDM in standalone mode.

3 Change password for Administrator user

4 Start SDM in integrated mode

5 Restart the J2EE engine

With this procedure the SDM server starts and everything in the MMC is

green but when I continue with the sapinst the same error occurs.

Another thing that is relevant is that we can´t login in Visual

Administrator with the user "Administrator" (Error while connecting

java.lang.NullPointerException) but if we activate the emergency user

SAP* we are able to login in this application.
