ERS services generating huge number of *.plf files
ERS service generating huge number of *.plf files at C:\Documents and Settings\SAPService<SID>\Local Settings\Temp where service SAP<SID>_11 is keep on trying to get start as it setup has automatic in Service.msc. But service not coming up.
SAP: SAP NetWeaver 2004s level 014 ( MS - cluster)
OS: Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2
I came to know that i can houskeep those *.pfl files. Can anyone please suggest me why these files have been generated and how can i stop this.
As of thread suggesting .PFL files accumulating in Temp directory of SAPService<SID> , I have deleted *.pfl files.
My concern is that why these PFL files are generating and how can i make service available.
To resolve this issue as per thread suggestion 3374521.
Execute from command prompt, command similar as :
pf="D:\usr\sap\<SID>\ERS<NR>\profile\START_ERS<NR>_<Hostname of NODE>"
This had to run from both of the nodes in cluster for both ERS services and then it got resolved..no more .pfl files.
I believe that this command is to copy all my executable,Dll files and provide environment to system startup.
Can i execute this sapcpe command while system is up?

Good news that issue has been resolved by using sapcpe command , where i have resync the executables for ERS services.
Now ERS service is running on both nodes(A & B) in services.msc.
As of my understanding, ERS shouldn't run where ASCS is running. But my configuration at my machine is slightly different.
Neil, I am clearly getting term ERS instance, you mean to say in MMC, ERS instance not in active.
