ASE_Suite.linuxamd64.tgz did not have setup.bin file

I was try to install (SAP ASE, enterprise edition, for evaluation) on Linux system.

After download ASE_Suite.linuxamd64.tgz file from the link in the e-mail.(title:Thank you for registering to evaluate SAP ASE)

I notice there is no setup.bin file in ASE_Suite.linuxamd64.tgz, instead setup.exe file included.

According to your [Installation and Upgrade Guide for Linux], I need to run [./setup.bin -i console] to process the install.

My understand is the ASE_Suite.linuxamd64.tgz should have setup.bin file in there not the setup.exe file.

My apologies. It appears that the incorrect installation was provided when the trial was refreshed with ASE 16.0 SP04PL04 yesterday. This has now been corrected.

Please try downloading again.

fwiw, I just downloaded ASE_Suite.linuxamd64.tgz, again, and it's still not right:

  • same exact size of the *tgz file I downloaded an hour ago
  • still contains the Windows version of the software (same setup*.exe files, and same sizes, as the WIndows setup*.exe files)

Hmmmm, interesting ...

  • accessing the download link via browser (different browsers, different machines, browser cache cleared) gives me the old *tgz (Windows software) (2.7G)
  • accessing the download link via command line (eg, wget) gives me the new/correct *tgz (2.1G)

Download link provided by the ASE eval page: https://d1cuw2q49dpd0p.cloudfront.net/ASE16/Current/ASE_Suite.linuxamd64.tgz

The only way the old file can be available is if the new one has not been distributed by the provider to all endpoints/AZs. The correct .tgz was uploaded over an hour ago (March 22, 2023, 09:54:54 (UTC-04:00)) and the old one is simply not available.

tl;dr

SAP has mistakenly distributed the Windows version of the ASE software under the Linux link.

Hopefully someone from SAP will see this post and submit a request to get the link and/or disbribution file fixed (for the Linux version of the download).

------------------------------- details ...

I just downloaded both versions of the ASE trial software:

  • ASE_Suite.linuxamd64.tgz (Linux)
  • ASE_Suite.winx64.zip (Windows)

I have confirmed:

  • both distributions (Linux, Windows) contain the installation binaries: setup*.exe
  • both distributions (Linux, Windows) are showing the same exact sizes for the similarly-named setup*.exe files
  • Linux is telling me the setup*.exe files are actually 'for MS Windows'
##### from my Ubuntu (Linux) env:

$ ls -l setup*
-rwxrwxr-x  1 mparsons mparsons  147230696 Mar 13 18:09  setupConsole.exe*
-rwxrwxr-x  1 mparsons mparsons  147365592 Mar 13 18:09  setup.exe*
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ same names/extensions as in the Windows/zip file ^^^^^^^^^ same exact sizes as in the Windows/zip file $ file setup* setup.exe: PE32 executable (GUI) Intel 80386, for MS Windows setupConsole.exe: PE32 executable (console) Intel 80386, for MS Windows
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
At this point It looks like SAP has mistakenly distributed the Windows version of ASE software under the Linux link.

Hi Sriram

Thanks for help.

I do untared the file by running [tar -xvf ASE_Suite.linuxamd64.tgz]

I got setup.exe, setupConsole.exe etc. No setup.bin file there.
