Error during installation of SAP SOL MAN 4.0 on SuSE (Import Java Dump)

Hello everyone

I' m trying to install SAP Solution Manager 4.0 on SuSE 9.1 (I know that it is not SAP recommended but I verified all the kernel & package prerequisites needed).

I' m running a Central Instance Installation with Oracle which is currently at step 19 (Import java dump) where it crashes with the following error (as it is record in

I have searched the forums for this problem and I didn't find something about the specific crash (not enough files...) although I see that it is something common for the VM to crash at that step for various other reasons...

I use jdk-1.4.2_12 but I have also tried jdk-1.4.2_09 and jdk-1.4.2_08 (as recommended in some articles) with no success.

My hardware platform is a compaq 6500 server with 1GB RAM, 52GB disk space, 1GB swap.

Currently (after db creation & ABAP loading) the remaining free disk space is 6GB (enough I think to complete the installation). The java and oracle processes seem to fit with no problem in the current resource limits (memory + swap).

I don't think that it is a resource limit problem (user limits - file descriptors & processes - have been defined as needed). I have read that it might be a JDBC Oracle driver problem but I have already patched Oracle to

I would very much appreciate any of your ideas, as my installation is stuck there...

    I remember, that there is a limit from the Linux kernel

    for open files

    I set /etc/sysctl.conf

    1. Kernel settings (for SAP R/3)





    kernel.sem=250 32000 32 1024


    I am not sure on whether this is your problem.

    It could be an Oracle problem with open files as well.

    SAP Note 8812 refers to this problem.

      We have bee trying to install the SOLMAN 4.0 (ABAP and JAVA) on HP-unix and Oracle DB.

      We had first used the JDK version. The install kept hanging at the same place, during the ABAP dump import. (step 19 I think)

      We tried to downgrade the JDK just for the sake of trying anything that could work. However the Sapinst was still detecting the old JDK version

      Finally we upgrade the JDK to and restarted the install. This time it worked, as the sapins could not detect the version 10 anymore.

      So it seams that JDK can cause issues.

      There might also be issues installing the XI with the same JDK. so best avoid it if u can.
