SAP CPI-C Error Service Unknown and /etc/services

I’ve found that generally the Netweaver 7.0 installations seem to create all required mappings in the /etc/services (or C:WindowsSystem32Driversetcservices) file, plus any not specifically required.

However, on older R/3 systems, it’s still possible to fall foul of this problem when the service port mappings are not present in the /etc/services file.

When using RFC connections or testing a connection in SM59, you’re seeing CPI-C (CPIC) errors with “Service sapgw00 Unknown” and CM_RESOURCE_FAILURE_NO_RETRY.

It’s normally visible as a connectivity error when testing connections in SM59:

You should ensure that the connection test fails when you put the exact numerical port number into the SM59 “Gateway service” connection details, as well as failing when you have the service port name e.g. sapgw00:

How to Check If You’re Using the 6.40 Extension Set 2.0 SAP Kernel

With SAP R/3 Enterprise 4.7 came the 6.40 Kernel.
There are two releases of this kernel, 6.40 Extension Set 1.10 and 6.40 Extension Set 2.0.

When you need to patch the Kernel, you need to know which one to download.
You can tell by executing the “disp+work” binary on UNIX or Windows:

$ id

$ disp+work


  disp+work information
  kernel release                640
  kernel make variant           640_EX2        <<< EXT 2.0
  DBMS client library

$ disp+work


  disp+work information
  kernel release                640
  kernel make variant           640_REL        <<< Not EXT 2.0
  DBMS client library
