ECC5 installation on linux ...


When I try to run the install of either the Database instance or the Central Instance of the WAS640 (ABAP), I receive these messages. Can someone tell me what is missing in my setup or configuration? (I am hoping the second message is a result of the first message).

MOS-01049 Processing of host operation Content of table: t_HostInfo_SHARED Row[0] HostRole="LOCALHOST" Condition="true" OpMode="getInfo" HostName="value(NEEDED)" HostNameLength="value(NEEDED)" HostAddresses="value(NEEDED)" HostAliases="value(NEEDED)" HostCpuCount="value(NEEDED)" HostPlatform="value(NEEDED)" HostRam="value(NEEDED)" HostSwap="value(NEEDED)" HostCpuFamily="value(NEEDED)" HostOsFaName="value(NEEDED)" HostOsName="value(NEEDED)" HostOsType="value(NEEDED)" failed.

I have checked host name and ip address is added into /etc/hosts file.

Any idea on this.
