Error during installation Phase in NetWeaver 7.3 EHP1

Hi Experts,.

I am doing an SAP NetWeaver 7.3 installation on a single-host standard install. My OS is Windows 2008 R2 SP1 and the DB is Oracle 11g R2 (

I am installing the ABAP+Java stack.

During the installation phase 29 of 50 Start Instance, I get the following error:

      An error occurred while processing option SAP Enhancement Package 1
      for SAP NetWeaver 7.3 > Oracle > SAP Systems > Process Integration >
      Standard System > Standard System( Last error reported by the step:
      Instance NTD/DVEBMGS00 reached state SHUTDOWN after having state
      STARTING. Giving up.)

  After some research I came across a few solutions, none of which have worked for me thus far:

1) Add to the HOSTS file the IP address and domain of the computer (i did this)

2) Increase virtual memory size to 6GB (Mine is set at 20GB)

Looking at the logs in sapinst_dev.log I couldn't deduce anything new but I did come across this:

17.04.2013 14:52:59



name, description, dispstatus, textstatus, starttime, elapsedtime, pid

disp+work.EXE, Dispatcher, YELLOW, Running but Dialog Queue standstill, 2013 04 17 14:51:30, 0:01:29, 3156

igswd.EXE, IGS Watchdog, GREEN, Running, 2013 04 17 14:51:30, 0:01:29, 6140

Looking at it from SAP MMC I also wasn't able to manually start the said instance.

Can anyone please shed some light to how I can resolve this issue??

Best Regards,

Hi Amit and Deepak,

I had tried everything you guys had suggested before I posted the message. I finally resolved the issue. There is an SAP note out there specific to a Windows 2008 R2 and NetWeaver 7.31 install related to my issue. after I implemented the note, the installation proceeded fine.

Thanks for the input.
