Can you also post the contents of your host file and a netstat -an |
grep LISTEN? You probably set things up correctly, but I had a similar
issue that came down to the contents of my hosts file..

The installation of SAP WAS TestDrive on Red Hat 8.0 still fails,
allthough I have modified my hostname to a value shorter than eight
The symptom is:
checking RFC destination...
could not connect SAP instance at host panos with system number 18 see
error:%post(sapbasis-6.10.1) scriptlet failed, error status 1
I get this message right after the database gets populated with its
content. The logfile "startrfc.log" says:
RFC Call/Exception: open
Group Error group 102
Message Connect to SAP gateway failed
Connect_PM GWHOST=panos, GWSERV=sapgw18, ASHOST=panos, SYSNR=18
LOCATION CPIC (TCP/IP) on local host
ERROR partner not reached (host panos, service 3318)
TIME Thu Apr 10 13:12:51 2003
COMPONENT NI (network interface)
SYSTEM CALL connect
ERRNO TEXT Connection refused
I have also observed the following:
Right after the failure, the usual 'ms', 'co', 'es'-type processes
appear in 'ps -ef', but no 'dw', and, if I issue 'stopsap/startsap'
commands (they appear to execute normally), a line gets written into the
file 'startsap_...log', that says that the 'dw'-type child process has
terminated with status 0.
I am attaching the 'startsap...log' file, as a reference for those who
might want to take a look.
Any ideas on how to fix this, anybody?
