- The message server and the dispatcher do not start at all in the SAP MMC.
- The following error when trying to view the developer traces within the SAP MMC: The network path was not found.
- No new developer traces written to disk (under the "work" directory.)
Problem Analysis The network shares "saploc" and "sapmnt" do not exist. That explains the "network path not found"...
message when attempting to view the developer traces within the SAP MMC.
Re-create the "saploc" and "sapmnt" network shares. Both need to be created on the /usr/sap directory.
