I run a number of VMs using Parallels on my Mac and wanted to use the same for the available Netweaver Gateway 2.0 SP06 . There were a couple of issues after install that needed to be resolved before I could use the system.

The install was very quick and straightforward without any problems.

The first issue I hit was when starting using SAPMC . The user and hosts had been configured during the install, but the msg_server process had not started. Looking at the log the host nwgw was not reachable.

Checking the /etc/hosts file, no entry for nwgw existed. ifconfig -a yielded the IP address and the entry was added to the hosts file:

192.168.1.12      nwgw

With the hosts entry added Gateway started and the provided services could be accessed.

The next hurdle was to get my own services working. A model/service was created and configured.

This image combines both the Gateway server and IWBEP addon for service enablement, so transactions for both are available in the system.

/ifwnd/maint_service is the transaction for enabling the new services.

Selecting the service to be added caused a short dump:

Looking at the errors they we are related to the NONE destination connection call failing on an RFC. Digging around Note 1532825 the suggestion for RFC_PING to be used is alluded to. Simply using SE37 to RFC_PING NONE solved the problem.

With the NONE issue resolved it was now possible to create and run my own services:
