Netweaver 7.2 and NWDS 7.2 don't work on Windows 7
I have installed both Netweaver 7.2 (no SP) and NWDS 7.2 (SP5) on my Windows 7 laptop, using a MAXDB. I am deploying my application (a ear) from NWDS to Netweaver during my development. The deployment usually only takes 1 or 2 minutes. After working for a week or so, the deployment didn't work any more --- the deployment hung and wouldn't complete. I waited over 30 minutes and it still was not finishing. So I shutdown the Netweaver and NWDS gracefully or ungracefully (with all means possible), and I could not re-start the Netweaver any more. The meaningful log message I could get is:
[May 22, 2011 5:07:22 PM ] Starting to persist instance profile
[May 22, 2011 5:08:51 PM ] Thread [Watchdog for main] initiated a full thread dump on [Sun May 22 17:08:51 EDT 2011] due to: [Watchdog timeout]
[May 22, 2011 5:08:52 PM ] Exception occurred for component [internal/unkown] of type [unkown]
com.sap.engine.bootstrap.SynchronizationException: No progress was recorded since [ Sun May 22 17:07:22 EDT 2011]. Check the database and file system state. If you are using MAXDB ensure that the log and data volumes are not full
The MAXDB seems to be working fine, and there was no indication of log full. But I still tried to clean-up the MAXDB log using dbmcli, but failed because of security reasons (mostly because the security mode of Windows 7 doesn't work well with Netweaver 7.2 and its MAXDB version I guess).
Then only workaround left for me was to uninstall and restall the Netweaver and its MAXDB. It happened twice in the last 2 weeks. It's a long process and I don't want to do it every week.
Does anybody experienced the same issue? How did you solve the problem?
Thanks in advance.
