    I restarted my SAP S4hana instance the first time in 2 years because it was running slow (takes 7 mins to respond to actions/clicks). I rebooted and no one could connect to it anymore. Now returns error WSAECONNREFUSED: Connection refused on the GIU, and 502 Bad Gateway when we access via the web browser.

    Can someone help?
