I am trying to install SPA HANA HXE on my server. My server has CentoOS 7 and 256 GB RAM. I have checked for the hardware by using and the result is,

With this I go further to install the SAP_HXE, I got the following error pf 'permission denied' even I execute it using by 'sudo'(root access). The snap of error is,

Does SAP HANA HXE 2.0 supports CentOS? What is the reason behind occurrence of 'Permmision Denied'?

CentOS is not officially supported for HANA Express Editions. Please check the system requirements at

As CentOS derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux (one of the supported platforms for SAP HANA), I would expect HANA to run on it.

However, as Florian mentioned, CentOS is not a supported platform. Hence the output of the script.

Any support would be by the community but there will not be many out there to help you for CentOS.

So much for the fine print.

Access denied probably refers to file permissions. You can try

 chmod -R 777 /home/sanket/SAP_HSE
