verify own hostname <HOSTNAME> failed - Error
I recently purchased miniWAS 6.20 and installed the same in my laptop. I am facing some problem. I am able to start the ABAP engine if my system is connected to the internet. But when i do the same without connecting to the Internet the ABAP engine gives me a short dump saying,
<b> Last error logged in SAP kernel
Component............ "NI (network interface)"
Place................ "SAP-Server KATHIR_BSP_00 on host KATHIR (wp 0)"
Error code........... "-16"
Error text........... "verify own hostname (KATHIR) failed"
System call.......... " "
Line................. 2876 </b>
I did some search and was able to find some solution for the same. The note 824722 gives the following solution,
By defining the "gw/local_addr" profile parameter, you can force the system to always use this local IP address for the connection. You can also change the parameter with transaction SMGW in a dynamic way while operating the system. The default value is 0.0.0.0, that is, a specific network adapter is not used.
gw/local_addr = <local IP_adr>
If the IP address specified is not local, the system returns the following error message while establishing the connection:
ERROR => NiLowLevCon: NiBind rc = -16
ERROR => GwIAsyncConnSend: GwBufConnect to ld0168.wdf.sap.corp / sapgw53 failed (rc=NIEMYHOST_VERIFY)
LOCATION SAP-Gateway on host ldp007 / sapgw11
ERROR verify own hostname (?) failed

This parameter is available for 6.40 with CST Patch Collection 08 2005 (patch level 62).</b>
When I goto the transaction <b>SMGW</b> I find a different IP for my machine
