While doing java import using sapinst. it errors out saying

NWException thrown: nw.msConnectException:

+ While connecting to the message server instance SDC/DVEBMGS78 on host sapsdcci, port 3978 an exception has occurred. <p> DIAGNOSIS: The original exception was:

Connect to message server (sapsdcci/3978) failed: NIETIMEOUT.<br> SOLUTION: Make sure that the message server is started.

Actual message server has rdisp/msserv_internal = 4778 in default.pfl. However, sapinst changes this to 3978 and fails. I have changed this to originall does not help. Also restarted system, does not help.

Can you execute the following command: netstat -an |grep 3978

and post the output here..

Also check the sapms<SID> entry in the /etc/services file. On which port is it configured?

Kind regards,
