Unable to create SSFS Key file

Former Member

Hello All,

I am installing distributed system SAP Netweaver 7.3 in opensuse 12.3

I have successfully installed ASCS and Database instance. But while installing Primary Application Server, I am stuck at " Start Instance " phase.

When checked R3trans is unable to connect to database (Oracle 11g)

I referred below notes 1639578 and 1622837, as, I don't see any SSFS key in /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/security/rsecssfs/key folder.

When, I see the below details as ora<SID>

0 encrypted

0 plain


Whereas, I see the below details as <SID>adm

1 encrypted

1 plain


I am also using below command to create SSFS key using <SID>adm

rsecssfx put DB_CONNECT/DEFAULT_DB_PASSWORD <passward>

it executes without any error, but, I don't see any key file.

Is it storing somewhere else ?

Thanks & Regards,

Ananda Swaroop G K

Hello All,

I apologize for delayed response and as of now.

Hi Anand,

Is open SUSE supported ?:)

What issue are you facing ?

from SIDADM user can you please try rsecssfx list

Can you please trans.log which you get when try r3trans -d.

Does the <SID>adm account have the proper rights to that directory?  If not are they at least the owner or in the group that can write to the directory/file?
