Verifying the InstallationLocate this document in the navigation structure

Check for errors in the installation logs, then verify that you can start the SAP Mobile Platform Server and log in to Management Cockpit.


  1. Check the installation log at <SMP_HOME>/InstallLogs/SMPInstall<timestamp>.log.

    <SMP_HOME> is the installation location you specified (the default is <$HOME>/SAP/MobilePlatform3/).

    A quick way to do this is:

    grep -i error SMP*log
  2. Verify that you can start SAP Mobile Platform Server.
    1. Open a terminal window.
    2. Go to <SMP_HOME>/Server/.
    3. Run

    Server start-up is complete when you see this message The SMP server has initialized and is ready.


    When you run, stderr is redirected to the server_daemon.log file; stdout is not redirected. For troubleshooting, you can run -clean to clear the OSGi cache before starting the server.

  3. Verify that you can log in to Management Cockpit.
