SAPinst Error EHP3 for SAP SRM 7.0 ABAP Support Release 1 on Oracle/Linux

Dear SCN,

I face the following issue while installing a fresh SRM System on Linux/Oracle with SWPM.

The LOG says:

Standard System( Last error reported by the step: System call failed. Error 13 (Permission denied) in execution of system call 'openU' with parameter (/root/SAP/Media/SWPM/COMMON/INSTALL/ORA/STARTDB, O_RDONLY), line (291) in file (syuxcfile.cpp), stack trace: EJSController.cpp: 183: EJSControllerImpl::executeScript()

JSExtension.hpp: 1064: CallFunctionBase::call()

iaxxbfile.cpp: 493: CIaOsFile::copyFromPath_impl()

syuxcfile.cpp: 255: CSyFileImpl::copy(const CSyPath & /usr/sap/SRX/SYS/exe/uc/linuxx86_64/startdb, ISyNode::CopyMoveMode_t 0x3, ISyProgressObserver*) const

I set the permissions on /root/SAP/* to 777.

Furthermore I see that this file "/usr/sap/SRX/SYS/exe/uc/linuxx86_64/startdb" does not exist at all.

Even If I place it manually, while retrying SAPinst it gets removed and I'm stuck with the error above.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance,

    In Linux directory /root has restricted access for other users (it's not depend on rights you assigned to its subdirectories). Please move installation media to any other directory.

    Hi Tomas,

    Do you have "/usr/sap/SRX"  File system ?

    ans what is /root/SAP/* ?
