Error SHMMAX on install

Hi - running on CENTOS 7 (clone of RHEL) - the Trial netweaver Abap 7.5 system errors out with Error in Linux kernel parameter - shmmax invalid

Tried messing around with different values -- no difference

Machine has 16GB RAM

Also trying to install JAVA GUI -- just get Iced Tea screen page - no SAP GUI

    Hello Jim,

    Edit the file "/etc/sysctl.conf" and add the following parameters there (or update their values, if they are already there):

    • kernel.shmmax = 214748364800
    • kernel.shmall = 52428800

    If you have access to the SAP Support LaunchPad, you can read the SAP Note 941735.

    Regards,

    IsaĆ­as
