2047063 - "Running with Errors" seen on Promotion Management APS


  • The adaptive processing server (APS ) is "running with errors" after startup
  • Promotion management services on this APS show the following message "The service did not start"
  • Other services besides PM services start up properly. The behavior is illustrated in below images




  • Issue started after upgrading from BIP/IPS 4.0 SP4 patch 5 to BI 4.1 SP02. After the upgrade the APS is showing running but with errors state.
  • Recreating the APS process with PM and other services does not resolve the issue, as PM services still do not start.
  • The issue is also not resolved by recreating the SIA or creating a new SIA on the same CMS database
  • Patch upgrade or repair does not fix the issue either.
  • According to SAP Note 1740516 , BI 4.1 SP2/SP3 are both compatible with DS 4.2 SP1 installed.
