I was having the same issue and saw all of your notes. I searched for "igs watchdog" on this forum and found a solution that worked for us. The note she references (824281) had text that we copied and pasted into our startup profile.

Thanks Sheng (see below).


When I install R3470*200

I meet the same problem

Refer to note 824281, I solved my problems.

the solution of 824281 are:


You can manage long parameters with variables in the instance profile.

The online documentation contains a description of this.

Excerpt from the DOCUMENTATION:


Parameter values in instance profiles can contain the following

variable s. '$(parameter name)' is replaced by the value of the

parameter name in brackets.


Param1 = '/usr/sap/C11/D53/dbg'

Param2 = $(Param1)/stats

This results in

Param2 = /usr/sap/C11/D53/dbg/stats
