2414599 - Dialog instance does not start due to DP_FATAL_ERROR => Gateway died with status 2


The SAP ABAP Application Server does not start. Firstly it is required to analyze the dispatcher trace file (dev_disp) inside of the problematic instance's work folder (LocalDrive\usr\sap\<SID>\SCS<XX>\work).

The dispatcher trace file reports the following error:

*** ERROR => [DpProcDied] Process died (PID:36444 HANDLE:1744 rc:0x0) [dpnttool2.c 147]
*** ERROR => gateway (pid 36444) died [dpxxdisp.c 17664]
*** DP_FATAL_ERROR => Gateway died with status 2 - I better exit now


The error means that the gateway service (gwrd) died during the start-up. The gateway trace file (dev_rd) reports the following error:

***LOG Q0Z=> DpSysAdmExtCreate, bad version (lib=<lib version> krn=<kernel version>) [dpxxtool2.c 723]
* LOCATION SAP-Gateway on host USNENCPW125.NMCorp.Nissan.Biz / sapgw00
* ERROR dp lib version mismatch, please check installation
* TIME Wed Jan 11 08:06:34 2017
* VERSION <lib version>
* RC -9999
* MODULE dpxxtool2.c
* LINE 730
* DETAIL version of external and kernel dp lib mismatch (ext lib
* version is <lib version> / kernel lib version is <kernel version> )
*** ERROR => DpIPCInit2: DpSysAdmExtCreate [dpxxtool2.c 411]
***LOG S0V=> GwStopGateway, gateway stopped () [gwxxrd.c 13396]


 In this case, <lib version> and <kernel version> are not the same.
