Unable to display the content of the file in AL11

Hi Experts,

We had mounted SAP system XXX 's directory '/data/' on another non-SAP system YYY to share the resources.

We have created Group A on both systems. XXX and YYY both have same OS (Redhat Linux).

XXX System / Group A YYY System / Group A xxxadm yyyadm yyyadm xxxadm

An application in YYY system has written a file FILE with permissions (640) rw-r----

At OS level, logged into XXX, xxxadm was able to read the file since it belongs to same Group A.

From SAP, through AL11, the FILE content was not able to read. Theoritically, xxxadm belongs to same group as yyyadm, so through AL11, it should be readable.

Do you have any clues?

Thanks,
Suraj Pabbathi

    Hi,

    just a stupid question. Does your ABAP user have sufficient authorization to read this file (S_DATASET)?

    Cheers

    Hello,

    group A must have the same GID on both the server, and user <SID>adm (SAP os user) should belog to group A.

    Try to open the file at OS level with the <SID>adm user, if it works, than also AL11 works...
