unable to stop SAP by stopsap

Hi all,

i'm facing a different problem,

i login to SAP Hp-ux system with <SID>adm user ID and try to stop and start sap application by using command, stopsap

but, its giving error like...

0A<HOSTNAME>:<SID>adm 1> stopsap

/usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/exe/run/stopsap[32]: /var/tmp/sh26641.13: Cannot create the specified file.

start profile START__<HOSTNAME> not found

<hostname>:<sid>adm 2>

check profiles in /sapmnt/<SID>.

checked from RZ10 and reloaded. start profile is available and there is no changes in the profiles.

will there be any problem with file system permissions.

why it is giving error like start__<hostname> not found.

actual profile nomenclature is as follows:-


START_<instance><instance no.>_<hostname>

<SID>_<instance><instance no>_<hostname>

no changes in the above files.

please suggest on what could be the actual problem and how to rectify this.

best regards

thanks in advance

I am getting exactly the same error, as soon as i don't have permissions on /var/tmp

root# chmod 770 /var/tmp

sidadm%  stopsap 
/usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/run/stopsap[32]: /var/tmp/sh10410.13: Cannot create the specified file.
start profile START__host1 not found

On my systems, the perrmissons are:

drwxrwxrwt 16 root root 8192 Aug 6 16:14 /var/tmp

But drwxrwxrwx works as well...

Best regards, Michael
