urgent help indeed needed. We have an SAPBC installed in an VMWare instance (Linux !), identical to two installations outside the DMZ.
Equiped with jdbc driver, java. We are connecting to an SAP system and and an SQL server.
I made the preparation for running it in the DMZ, like firewall switching for port 3300 (sapgw00)/443 and dns settings and the routing to the firewall.
I did not change a thing in the configuration of the sbc, in relation to the previous installations. When I connect to the required sap system or database (different message though), I get the following message:
Message Connect to SAP gateway failed Connect_PM GWHOST=GIFD71.DE.ABB.COM, GWSERV=sapgw00, ASHOST=GIFD71.DE.ABB.COM, SYSNR=00 LOCATION CPIC (TCP/IP) on local host ERROR partner not reached (host GIFD71, service 3300) TIME Mon May 26 14:55:01 2003 RELEASE 620 COMPONENT NI (network interface) VERSION 36 RC -10 MODULE niuxi_mt.c LINE 1084 DETAIL NiPConnect2 SYSTEM CALL SO_ERROR ERRNO 113 ERRNO TEXT No route to host COUNTER 13
I know the gate 3300 is derived from the sapgw(00) number, the jdbc driver uses it as well, althoug not relevant for the sap system connect.
I checked the firewall with nslookup and get a positive responce, the firewall monitor confirms that.
Anyboby ideas, I am getting desperate, since the three servers are identical, apart from the location !
