    Hi,

    Seems to be a problem with permissions to the directory,probably the sidadm doesn't have enough permissions to set groups,ensure the permissions are correct on the directory.

    Cheers

    Hi Amal,

    If you are getting the below error

    then

    chmod u+s /bin/su

      Dear Ashutosh;

      I stopped the installation, and run it again via the user root. I amd sure that I am the root user using the command whoami as u suggested.

      I made sure that sapinst_instdir has full read write access.

      After that I reached the phase import abap but the error now I am getting is different:

    Hello

    Quick question:

    Under which user are you running the installation ?

    Also provide the output of these commands

    su - uhradm

    pwd

    ls -la

    ls -la /home

    Regards

    RB

    Quick Checks:

    1) You have started the installation with ROOT user?

    2) As you have reached phase IMPORT ABAP, the <sid>adm user is not able to change the group of the file system because it might not have sufficient privileges. If this is the case, you can manually change the group of the directories accordingly.

    3) Can you post the owner:group of files/directories below the following:

    • /usr/sap/<SID>
    • /sapmnt/<SID>
    • /oracle<SID>

    If nothing comes back, you can clean-up the installation directories, delete users created i.e ora<sid>, sid<adm>... and begin with fresh installation with ROOT user and latest SWPM tool to do the installation.
