I am starting an install of Solution Manager on a Windows 2008 R2 Standard server.
When I run sapinst.exe (unpacked from SAPINST7202_0-10009474.SAR) I get the error "The startup file specified by SAPINST_CONTROL_URL "C:/Temp/control.xml" doesn't exist. Check the value and start again."
Is sapinst supposed to create a control.xml file? The file is not being created. The Program Starter log shows this:
Program is starting... Please wait! Starting GUIServer using: SAPinst port : 21200 GUIServer port: 21212 HTTP port : 4239 GUI autostart : on GUI mode : normal command : "C:/Users/A32635/AppData/Local/Temp/2/sapinst_exe.2664.1305281210/jre\bin\java.exe" -cp "C:\Users\A32635\AppData\Local\Temp\2\sapinst_exe.2664.1305281210\jar\instgui.jar" -Xmx256M -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -Dsap.env.var.javahome=SAPINST_JRE_HOME SDTServer "rootdir=C:\Users\A32635\.sdtgui" config=jar:sdtserver.xml guiport=21212 httpport=4239 -nolock -srvarg=/SAPinstService/host=127.0.0.1 -srvarg=/SAPinstService/port=21200 MessageLib: ERROR: unable to open URL 'file://C:/Temp/messages.xml' The startup file specified by SAPINST_CONTROL_URL "C:/Temp/control.xml" doesn't exist. Check the value and start again.
As a test I created this file by hand (as an empty file). Now when I run sapinst I get this error:
Error while connecting to communication partner - see preceding messages. Could not connect to host localhost on port 21212. java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect
I assume the control.xml (and messages.xml) file should be created by running sapinst itself? Is that correct? When I run sapinst.exe with no control.exe file the file dev_sap_kernel gets created in C:\Temp (which is where I am running sapinst from) so it seems I have the correct write permissions for the folder.
Can anyone suggest what may be wrong?
