Hello Elinus,

I am not sure how much I can help , but it will be great if you can check and respond ,

Check the components that are installed

1. log in as <sidadm> on OS level

2. cd /hana/shared/<SID>/hdblcm

3. ./hdblcm --action=print_component_list

This will provide the components that are listed and you can check if you have hana client installed.

The next thing you can do is go to cd /usr/sap and list all items ll to check the file permissions

Please let me know if it helps

Hi Elinus,

Suggest to tag your question with SAP Business One as the issue is specific to this product.

If this just concerns SAP HANA, you can download the latest SAP HANA client from the Software Downloads section of the SAP ONE Support Laumchpad ( requires a S-user account or, alternatively, from the public SAP Development Tools website

zernan did you figure out the issue? I have looked the KB notes but found nothing specific to the error message you experienced. I have also recently seen this error message on an install.
