‘sapstartsrv’ service not started in SAP HANA Studio

After installing fresh SAP HANA DB system sometimes we are not able to get ‘sapstartsrv’ up and running in SAP HANA Studio.



First, we have to check which ports are being used in DB server for this service. to do this login on the system and run below command.

netstat -lntp | grep sapstartsrv

In this case, we have port 50013 now we have to open this port in system firewall.





Conclusion:  If the issue is related to the firewall you will find this service up and running in SAP HANA Studio.

      There are also a few knowledge base articles (KBAs), as there are some other reasons why the service is not displayed or shows the wrong status.

      For some background information about this service, see the blog post
