    Hi Nabil.

    I think you have to add the host enter \etc\hosts file. Kindly refer the SCN thread - https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/3523760

    Hi Patrick,

    check the SWPM Note and download the latest SWPM for the older Operating systems

    (see "Reason and Prerequisites" section of that note).

    In your case it should be RMOS70SWPM*.SAR.

    Go for the very latest version available on the Service Marketplace and repeat.

    I recommend executing SWMP in an empty local share (not NFS).

    Please go back and use 70SWPM10SP18_4-20009701.

    The one I recommended cannot be used as we can see from your latest log entries.

    I wonder though, why Oracle 6 is listed in note 1680045 as OS where the RMOS70SWPM has to be used.

    For the error regarding the unknown host, I would go with S Srirams advice to edit the /etc/hosts


    Let us know how it went!
