I installed saprouter as per the note 41054. sapver 4.6c/w2k/sql2k.
saprouter version is 34.
The service gets created but refuses to start.the event log gives a
message: "error 997:
The sapprouttab file cannot be opened.
no such file or directory."
I logged in as domain administrator.
There must have been a problem with the installation of the service. As you know, the installation creates an entry in the registry. I suggest you remove the service and re-install it again. You can remove it using the resource kit tool "Install/Remove Service Wizard" (srvinstw.exe) or by wiping out the folder "saprouter" in the registry (launch regedt32.exe for this).
Here is the command to install SAProuter:
ntscmgr install saprouter -b usrsap
"service -r ?R usrsap
Make sure that you have the saprouttab under the "run" directory as well.
The following is a sample file that uses SAPServ4 (IP = 188.8.131.52) as the destination host:
# outgoing connections to OSS
P 200.10.*.* 184.108.40.206 3299
# incoming connections from SAP
P 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168 3200
# Permits PCAnywhere port
P 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 5631
* Note: To change the path to the route permission table file enter this command:
saprouter ?r ?R newfile
where newfile is the file that contains the route permission table.
