Hana Installation Error - Cannot create initial topology


Hi dear experts, I'm getting the following problem trying to install Hana on SLES 11 on a VMWare. You can find attached the error log, as you can see I'm using a laptop but I think the memory amount doesn't has to affect the installation because I'm setting --ignore=check_diskspace,check_min_mem.

In addition I'm getting the same error when I use a VM with 30gb RAM.

Can anybody help me?

hana01:/mnt/hgfs/hana/51048744/DATA_UNITS/HDB_SERVER_LINUX_X86_64 # ./hdbinst --ignore=check_diskspace,check_min_mem
