Finally, I’m able to run VMWare on my Notebook. I knew this software for long time, but for VMWare Server I’ve just installed it last night. Well, I encountered some problem with this installation, started with creating bootable Windows Server 2003 cd, then VMWare cannot detect my guest OS Win Server 2003 x64 bit. If you face this issue, may be solution below will help you.
Question : How to create a SAP service in Windows environment?
Answer : Using sapstartsrv program from SAP.
Here’s the procedure,
- Run sapstartsrv -t from SAP executable files folder.
- Fill in the required fields as picture below.
- Click OK.
- In case you want to uninstall the service, you can use sapstartsrv.exe -u
Register COM type library can be used if the registry is deleted by accident.
Use START profile instead of instance profile.
User SAPService<SID> is created when you install SAP in Windows environment.
This is a little note when you upgrading the SAP Kernel in clustered system on Windows OS: Dont forget to copy the Kernel folder /usr/sap/<SID>/<instance>/SYS/exe/run to C:/Windows/sapcluster folder. I got an error when I didn’t copy the Kernel folder to cluster directory. And this has to be done in both cluster nodes which I think it should be copied automatically if the cluster system is smart, but somehow it doesn’t work that way when I try to failed over to another cluster. SAP system in SAP MMC will be hanging and it seems dispatcher is on queue trying to connect to mesage server. And after some times it will go down. nice experience ..
