Scenario 1: Dispatcher does not start due to a port conflict

There's probably nothing worse than not being able to start your SAP system. Where's the
problem? The operating system? The database server? Or perhaps it is time to dive into the
dark corners of SAP to get some answers? This handy troubleshooting guide by veteran site
expert Giovanni Davila will help you figure out what's going on.

Scenario1:Dispatcherdoesnotstartduetoaportconflict

Service sapdp00 in use


The TCP port number assigned in the "services" file is being occupied by another
application. Due to the conflict, the dispatcher shuts down.
Solution
If your server has a firewall client, disable it and attempt to start the SAP instance
again.
If the instance starts successfully you can enable the client firewall back again.
If there is no firewall client at all, or if disabling it did not resolve the problem, edit the
"services" file and check what port the appropriate "sapdp" is using.
If the instance number is 00, look for sapdp00. If the instance number is 01 look for
sapdp01 and so on. You can use the following OS command to help you resolve port
conflicts:
netstat -p TCP
There are also utilities on the Internet that can help you list all the TCP and UDP
ports a system is using.
