ProcedureHow to Verify SAP and the Database Installation with Central Instance

Use this procedure to verify SAP central instance. Perform the following steps on all of the potential nodes on which the central instance can run.

  1. Create the failover resource group to hold the network and central instance resources.

    # scrgadm -a -g sap-ci-resource-group [-h nodelist]

    Note –

    Use the -h option to the scrgadm(1M) command to select the set of nodes on which the SAP central instance can run.

  2. Verify that you have added to your name service database all of the network resources that you use.

  3. Add a network resource (logical hostname) to the failover resource group.

    # scrgadm -a -L -g sap-ci-resource-group
     -l ci-logical-hostname [-n netiflist]
  4. Enable the resource group.

    Run the scswitch(1M) command to move the resource group into a managed state and bring the resource group online.

    # scswitch -Z -g sap-ci-resource-group
  5. Log in to the cluster member that hosts the central instance resource group.

  6. Ensure that the database is running.

  7. Manually start the central instance.

  8. Start the SAP GUI using the logical hostname, and verify that SAP initializes correctly.

    The default dispatcher port is 3200.

  9. Manually stop the central instance.

  10. Switch this resource group to another cluster member that can host the central instance.

    # scswitch -z -h node -g sap-ci-resource-group
  11. Repeat Step 5 through Step 9 until you verify startup and shutdown of the central instance on each cluster node that can host the central instance.
