We are starting it using ./sapinst. after that we are selecting prerequisite check option from menu.

Just after clicking next its get crash and error is:

Child process gets killed.sapinst gets crashed.

I am not infront of server console,so will post the actual error msg after a while.

Hi

Error is similar to this :

iauxsysex.c:318: child /tmp/sapinst_exe.209324.1256978362/sapinst (pid 266368) has crashed. Executable directory is /tmp/sapinst_exe.209324.1256978362. Contact Support.

iaextract.c:895: child has signaled an exec error.

What should be the ulimit value, Can you suggest??

thanks

Dear Amit,

Please verify sapinst_instdir's owner and permissions, another good idea is to remove it completely and start again.

It should work.

Hi,

Move the contents of /tmp/ to another location and launch the sapinst again.
