guisetup.xml & c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\services issue

Hi,

I have following issue with my SAP deployment:

There is a requirement to add following info to the ”c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\services” in order to have SAPGui client working fine on workstations:

sapmsIP0 3600/tcp

sapmsSP2 3600/tcp

sapmsSP4 3600/tcp

sapmsID1 3600/tcp

sapmsIT1 3600/tcp

sapmsIL0 3600/tcp

sapmsID2 3600/tcp

sapmsIT2 3600/tcp

sapmsIP2 3600/tcp

sapmsID3 3600/tcp

sapmsIT3 3600/tcp

sapmsIP3 3600/tcp

sapmsSP6 3600/tcp

sapmsIP4 3601/tcp

I use a guisetup.xml file to add required settings, but after the installation I see only last 2:

sapmsSP6 3600/tcp

sapmsIP4 3601/tcp

It is very strange because syntax in the guisetup.xml is equal for all info.

There is one more important consideration for the subject:

If you change sequence for last 2 records it will add according to it.

For example if I will put records in this way in my guisetup.xml:

sapmsIP0 3600/tcp

sapmsSP2 3600/tcp

sapmsSP4 3600/tcp

sapmsID1 3600/tcp

sapmsIT1 3600/tcp

sapmsIL0 3600/tcp

sapmsID2 3600/tcp

sapmsIT2 3600/tcp

sapmsIP2 3600/tcp

sapmsID3 3600/tcp

sapmsIT3 3600/tcp

sapmsSP6 3600/tcp

sapmsIP3 3600/tcp

sapmsIP4 3601/tcp

It will add following to the c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\services:

sapmsIP3 3600/tcp

sapmsIP4 3601/tcp

Very strange.

It seems that there is some restrictions in the script which use XML to add records in the c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\services file.

I need to add all records mentioned otherwise my SAP does not work properly,

Thanks,

Yevgeniy
