SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12
018-06-28T03:45:42.719624+02:00 unsinkable_02 lrmd: notice: rsc_SAPHana_HAL_HDB00_monitor_61000:211324:stderr [ Error: NIECONN_REFUSED (Connection refused), NiRawConnect failed in plugin_fopen() ]
and the SAP Instance cannot be operated by the Cluster for example.
This can affect normal SAP Instances like ASCS/ERS as well as HANA.
unsinkable_02:~ # /bin/systemctl --no-pager --all list-units | grep sapinit
sapinit.service loaded active running LSB: Start the sapstartsrv
sapinit.service loaded active exited LSB: Start the sapstartsrv
and in case this returns something like
sapinit.service loaded inactive dead LSB: Start the sapstartsrv
sapinit.service loaded failed failed LSB: Start the sapstartsrv
this can be fixed with
unsinkable_02:~ # /bin/systemctl restart sapinit.service
On SLE 15 SAP instances can be systemd-enabled and in that case will not be started by sapinit, but by their own systemd service files. In this case restart the services for the instances instead of sapinit.
