unable to start sapstartsrv after 720 kernel upgrade

I have similar issue. i get the below message after i upgraded the kernel to 720 standard on dual stack machine neither ABAP nor JAVA startup

. OS = AIX

Oracle = 11g

Database is running

-------------------------------------------

Starting Startup Agent sapstartsrv

Unknown webmethod: WaitforServiceStarted

Startup of Instance Service failed

-------------------------------------------

disp+work shows the latest patch level R3trans -x works fine, however when i start the above message appears.

I have checked the profile parameters

DIR_CT_RUN = /usr/sap/DS0/SYS/exe/ctrun --> This directory does not exists

DIR_EXECUTABLE = /usr/sap/DS0/SYS/exe/run

I have copied the newly extracted kernel to the /usr/sap/DS0/SYS/exe/run.

Thank you very much.

    Hi Kiran, you should apply 2 times sapcpe

    sapcpe pf=/usr/sap/<SAPSID>/SYS/profile/<instance profile>

    sapcpe pf=/usr/sap/<SAPSID>/SYS/profile/START_SCSxx_hostname

    Please check if sapstartsrv is process is running .

    ps -ef |grep sapstartsrv

    kill the processes which are specific to the instances . Do not kill the one running from the path /usr/sap/hostctrl/exe/

    Then copy the exectables from /sapmnt/<SID>/exe to the directory /usr/sap/<SID>/DVEBMGS*/exe.

    If you have ASCS and SCS , copy the executables from /sapmnt/<SID>/exe to /usr/sap/<SID>/ASCS*/exe and /usr/sap/<SID>/SCS*/exe

    Then start the SAP application.

      Also copy the executables from /sapmnt/<SID>/exe to /usr/sap/<SID>/SCS75/exe

      Then start the SAP application.

    Hi,

    you must have forgotten the below command.

    sapcpe pf=/usr/sap/<SAPSID>/SYS/profile/<instance profile>

    sapcpe pf=/usr/sap/<SAPSID>/SYS/profile/START_SCSxx_hostname

    The sapstartsrv is running from old kernel . The above cmd wil resolve the issue.
