Sapcontrol commands are being executed (either by an administrator or by the SUM - SAP Upgrade tool) and are failing, returning the following error:
FAIL: NIECONN_REFUSED (Connection refused), NiRawConnect failed in plugin_fopen()
Executing "ps -ef | grep sapstartsrv" confirms that the sapstartsrv process of the affected instance is not running.
Executing "sapcontrol -nr $$ -function StartService <SID>" ("$$" is the instance number) returns "OK".
However, the sapstartsrv does not start and the "sapstartsrv.log" file is not updated.
