What is TMKSVR?
The TMKSVR is the interface between IBM i and Windows for the installation with SAPinst. SAPinst is running on Windows, but has to install the product on IBM i. This means that all actions required for IBM i are initiated remotely on Windows but executed locally using the TMKSVR. The communication is done using TCP/IP. Make sure there is no system variable LANG defining a LOCAL. Otherwise, code page problems might prevent TMKSVR processes from starting.
