Troubleshooting sapinit

Symptom:

sapstartsrv processes and additional SAP instance processes started by init script fail or cause processes to run on LifeKeeper Standby Node.

Cause:

SAP provides an init script for automatically starting SAP instances on a local node. When a resource is added to LifeKeeper protection, the init script (sapinit) may attempt to start SAP Instance processes that should not be running on the current node.

Action:

Disable the sapinit script or modify sapinit to skip over LifeKeeper protected Instances. To disable this behavior, the user must stop sapinit (Example: /etc/init.d/sapinit stop). The sapinit script should also be disabled using chkconfig or similar tool (Example: chkconfig sapinit off).
