SWPM error on 'chmod' against ORACLE network/admin

Currently installing a vanilla SAP 7.40 HA system on Linux

During Database installation the SWPM software throws up several errors on permissions

the first couple are simple to fix - just chmod on the relevant directories to open up perms

However then it errors when running "chmod" on the ORACLE network/admin directory. I can manually chmod this whole tree (i.e. chmod -R) to 777 perms, but this makes no difference, the errors recurs.

Anyone seen similar? I've heard people mention FS mount options but as I can write and chmod it manually I can't see how this could be the issue.

Example error:

syuxcnode.cpp: 165: CSyNodeImpl::internalSetACL(PSyACLInt) syuxcnode.cpp: 188: CSyNodeImpl::setNativeACL(const NativeSecurityDesc_t &amp; sd, ISyErrorHandler * pErrorHandler) const . Unable to set access rights of /oracle/<SID>/11203/network/admin. .</message>

    All helpful answers but I can tell you know it is, as many issues are, a user error.

    After a long day I was restarting SAPINST as sidadm instead of root and I just didn't see it for a long long time.

    So if you see the same issue check this yourself!

    thanks to all

    Have you checked umask and groups for user <sid>adm and ora<sid> ?

    check sapinst group is assigned to sidadm and orasid , you can check the installation guide.

    ==================================

    Comment root

    No primary group is assigned.sapinst

    Superuser of the UNIX operating system<sapsid>admsapsysoper, dba, sapinst

    SAP system administratorora<dbsid>dbaoper, sapinst

    Database administrator

    This user is only required on the host where the database instance runs.

    Dear Jamie,

    Please check the owner of network dir please check and change it to ora<sid> and group dba

    you can use command chown orasid:dba network

    Best Regards,

    Hello Jamie,

    There is something wrong with your Oracle path, you are using the Oracle default naming (/oracle/<SID>/11203/) but SAP is using /oracle/<SID>/112_64/

    Check the path, if needed create a link this might be the cause of your problem


    Regards

    After changing the permission have you tried restarting the sapinst ?
