SAP start failing Suse linux 11 shm_open (13: Permission denied)


Linux: Kernel supports shared memory disclaiming

Linux: using madvise(<pointer>, <size>, 9).

Linux: disclaiming for shared memory enabled

I am trying to bring DVEBMGS00 , but dispatcher fails with this error.

Also I have given full permissions to /dev/shm chmod -R 777

drwxrwxrwx 7 root root 4096 Dec 17 11:15 shm


Please help to allocate shared memory to my dispatcher,

Kind Regards,

      Kernel upgrade worked.

      I sometimes wonder why SAP does not change Kernel DVD in the installation list.

      Always we have to do kernel upgrade during installation.

      Thanks anyways.
