Hi swathimatta

From the error you pasted here, we can know that definitely your OS is a certain Unix/Linux platform, as the file name is:


It is hard to identify the root reason without an OS expert, but what I would like to suggest you is:

1. check the intallation guide again, and especially the OS prerequirment section, to make sure all the requirements have bee


2. there should be some notes also regarding the version/platform you are installling, please check the notes if there is any similar

issue discussed.

Thanks and best regards,

Installing SAP in windows server 2008 R2 is not supported. So ensure that u r not using Winsows server R2. Also make sure that there are no other SAPINST service is not running.
