SAP distributed system on linux installation


Hello All,

I am now installing sap erp ehp7 system on redhat linux, with installation mode: Distributed System.

ASCS instance has been installed, after that I export /sapmnt/SID/exe, /sapmnt/SID/profile, /sapmnt/SID/global from ASCS instance host, and mounted them one by one on database instance, and now I am installing database instance, everything goes well except for the last step - brconnect to update statistics, this was due to a permission issue, however when I try to change owner of those files, I found all global host files and files under /usr/sap/SYS has ownership "nobody" and group "nobody", and I can not change them.

Do you have any idea how to solve this? I know for windows installation of Distributed system, a domain installation is mandatory, is it also obligatory for linux installation?

Thanks a lot.
