    Did you download the correct SWPM for your architecture? (ie: x86_64)

    Compare from the commands:

    uname -a
    file </path/to/sapinstexe>

    (just replace </path/to/sapinstexe> in the command with the actual full path to the sapinstexe executable)

    Hello Adam, thank you for reply

    I started wondering maybe I downloaded wrong version of SWPM as well

    The output for file<path to sapinst>is

    :data

    the current swpm version matches for the x86_64

    but maybe the one that I downloaded does not match the NetWeaver version.

    the smpm I have now is for NW 7.0x higher.

    maybe i should have downloaded swpm for NW 7.0 not higher...

    this is my first time to be involved in sap , linux, installation and everything...

    For Solman 7.2 the "NW 7.0x or higher" version should be fine.

    Howere it is strange the the "file" test I suggested would show for sapinstexe that it is a data file. Could you attach a screenshot showing the output of both commands I wrote?
