2261435 - SAP HANA WebDispatcher service fails to start due to missing profile.


  • SAP WebDispatcher fails to start
  • HDB Daemon service shows as 'Yellow' indicating that not all services have started.
  • From the OS command line of the SAP HANA host, the command 'sapcontrol -nr <instance id> -function GetProcessList' returns that the HDB Daemon is "Yellow, Initializing" and the HDB Daemon shows as "Red, Stopped".  All other services display as running.
  • The Daemon trace file contains entries similar to the following:
    [58535]{-1}[-1/-1] 2015-04-26 21:55:45.962403 i Daemon TrexDaemon.cpp(10069) : start 'sapwebdisp_hdb pf=/usr/sap/<SID>/HDB<instance id>/<hostname>/wdisp/sapwebdisp.pfl -f /usr/sap/<SID>/HDB<instance id>/<hostname>/trace/dev_webdisp' as process 59690
    [58535]{-1}[-1/-1] 2015-04-26 21:55:46.794773 i Daemon TrexDaemon.cpp(12189) : process sapwebdisp_hdb with pid 59690 exited normally with status 1
  • Manual attempts to start the web dispatcher using the same command as show in the Daemon trace i.e. start 'sapwebdisp_hdb pf=/usr/sap/<SID>/HDB<instance id>/<hostname>/wdisp/sapwebdisp.pfl -f /usr/sap/<SID>/HDB<instance id>/<hostname>/trace/dev_webdisp' return the following error:
    sapwebdisp_hdb=>sapparam(2): fopenU("/usr/sap/<SID>/HDB<instance number>/<hostname>/wdisp/sapwebdisp.pfl","r"): No such file or directory
