Troubleshooting sapinit


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


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.


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).
