CE71: error during applying SP with CEUPDATE tool


I'm implementing NW CE71 SR5 on unix/oracle and now encountering an error when applying the latest kernel and support packages with CEUPDATE tool.

I follow the procedure as below:

1. Extract the CEUPDATE tool from the downloaded support package stack:

cd /sapsource/CE71/download

SAPCAR xvf CEUPDATE71_0-10006200.SAR

2. Login as root, then run:

export SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME=QC1 (we use virtual hostname since this is HA system)


In jspmUpdate.log, the error is

Exception : Unable

to start JSPM. $(0)

Connection to JSPM could not be established, see following messages.

Could not connect to host QC1 on port 50017. Connection refused

I'm sure the ports 50017--50019 are not being used by other applications.This is QA server. and DEV (not HA) has been patched without error. So I suspect this error is caused by the virtual hostname . any idea?

Thanks and regards,
