# /usr/sap/hostctrl/exe/sapgenpse get_pse -p SAPSSLS.pse -noreq -x <PASSWORD> “CN=<HOSTNAME>”

# ll /usr/sap/hostctrl/exe/sec/SAPSSLS.pse

Grant Host Agent access to the server PSE

# /usr/sap/hostctrl/exe/sapgenpse seclogin -p SAPSSLS.pse -x <PASSWORD> -O sapadm

    For Windows-Users:

    1. Open DOS-Prompt
    2. cd c:\Program Files\SAP\hostctrl\exe
    3. mkdir sec
    4. cd sec
    5. set SECUDIR=%CD%
    6. ..\sapgenpse.exe get_pse -p SAPSSLS.pse -x >PASSWORT> “CN=<HOSTNAME>”
    7. ..\sapgenpse.exe seclogin -p SAPSSLS.pse -x >PASSWORT> -O <User wich runs the service>
    8. Stop/Start service: “sc stop “SAPHostControl””
    9. “sc start “SAPHostControl””
    10. “sapstartsrv.log” should have a line that reads “Webservice SSL thread started, listening on port 1129”

    You can also try to point your web browser to that port. It should come back with sap-MC.

    Best regards,
