ICM AUTH credentials on sapinst

Good morning

I am performing system copy AIX/DB2 and I am using latest SWPM 1.0 SP25

I have no root access just only access with user which can swich to root and I can start sapinst

Question is when I start it from browser, automatically is requesting credentials from ICM AUTH

I tried with (sid)adm user, OS user which can do swith to root but it does not proceed

  • Hi Angel Manuel, I can see that you have an incident open with SAP Product Support.

    As mentioned, the root access to install / perform a copy is essential for SWPM.

    I can suggest that you update this thread with the steps if the workaround provided in the incident is successful, in the "Your answer" section

    You can Use like below,


    you can set the SWPM folder for 777 for linux & "Everyone" to Full-Access in case of windows.

    Alternative way is, ./sapinst SAPINST_SLP_MODE=true

    I'm trying to install S/4HANA on SUSE 12, on Azure. We do not have root account, and I've been trying using the parameters SAPINST_REMOTE_ACCESS_USER and SAPINST_REMOTE_ACCESS_USR_IS_TRUSTED, with no luck. While "Define parameters" phase on SWPM, we get "Login as root user and restart the process".

    Any suggestions?
