Unable to start MWS server on local Windows

What product/components do you use and which version/fix level are you on?


Is your question related to the free trial, or to a production (customer) instance?

free trail

What are you trying to achieve? Please describe it in detail.

I was trying to setup the MWS on my local system installation was completed and the respective db connection also established post installation. IS is started but I was not able to start MWS, every time I tried start the MWS instance via Windows > Service or directly from the installation directory its going down within few mints.

Do you get any error messages? Please provide a full error message screenshot and log file.

I was not able to find any error related to MWS on windows log.

Did you run the DB configurator to create MWS DB tables?

yes, its done and successfully completed as well

Please share the error log.

I was able to find only these logs in local system
platform.log (23.5 KB)
sag-osgi.log (120 KB)
wrapper.log (92.5 KB)

java.sql.SQLNonTransientConnectionException: [SoftwareAG][SQLServer JDBC Driver]The connection to the host AAIWKVDA20814, named instance \MWSDB has failed. Error: “Receive timed out”. Verify the server and instance names, check that no firewall is blocking UDP traffic to port 1434, and for SQL Server 2005 or later verify that the SQL Server Browser Service is running on the host.

Please check in your sag-osgi.log. Seems like DB is not connecting.

Hi Nambi,

in addition to Srikanth´s answer, can you check if the SQLServerURL is correct?
You might need to exchange the “\” with a “/”.
