Problem when using 'startsap'

Former Member

I have a problem when attempting to use 'startsap'. I know that it was working after the install process finished. I was able to login and see the webpage at port '50000'. But since that time I have rebooted the computer and I have not been able to restart it.

I am working through the problems but I have come across one that I can't find and answer for.

When I use 'starts' I get the following error.

Starting SAP Instance JC00


Startup-Log is written to /home/mpinhorn/startsap_JC00.log

Startup of Instance failed

See /home/mpinhorn/startsap_JC00.log for details

Then in the 'startsap_JC00.log' file I get the following.

Trace of system startup/check of SAP System J2E on Wed Oct 12 14:42:07 NDT 2005

Called command: ./startsap

Hello Matthew,

Check the logs in /usr/sap/J2E/JC00/work directory, especially those updated at the last startup. There should be a more detailed error message about the problem.

You may have a look at note 764417, which gives information for troubleshooting some of the most common problems with J2EE Engine.

Kind Regards
