SUM not starting
OS: MS Server 2012 R2 DB: MS SQL 2012 SAP Solution Manager 7.1 x86 64-bit Kernel: 721 patch 400 Host: SAPERPTEST SID: UTS Instance: 05 User: sapadm Variable SAPMNT: E:\usr\sap Hello, I haven't used SUM before, so I set up a test server for practice. I installed Solution Manager and now am at the point of testing SUM. I downloaded the latest version (SP14) and extracted it using sapcar. The first time I tried to run "startup", I received the following message: Directory of the SAP system SAPE:\usr\sap\SAP does not exist. In my case, shouldn't it look for \usr\sap\UTS? As one suggested work around, I created a "SAP" symbolic link pointing to E:\usr\sap\UTS. "Startup" immediately failed. I recreated the symbolic link to point to the directory that I unloaded SUM into (E:\SUM). Now when I run "startup", I receive the following error: [ERROR]: Unable to detect an abap and/or AS Java instance of the SAP system SAP installed on host SAPERPTEST [ERROR]: com.sap.sdt.server.core.services.ServiceException [FATAL]: Error during controller startup. [FATAL]: SL Controller exiting. (Note: Before running startup, the DB is up and running. The system is fully accessible.) Does this error mean that it is looking for a SID called "SAP"? If so, is there somewhere to change the configuration to get it to look for "UTS"? I've looked where I downloaded the software, does anyone have a link for step-by-step instructions on installing SUM? I can't seem to find it. One last bit of information: There are no old profiles on the system. Any help would be appreciated!
