ABAP NW7.5 Install Error

Can anyone help with the error message I’m receiving while trying to install ABAP 7.5. Error message states ‘Abort execution because of step returns nw.syscopy.storagecopy.HostIsNotLocal’

The hostname check was compliant when executing ./

I used the link below to guide me through the various steps

    Hello Metthew,

    As it seems, currently only hostname vhcalnplci is suppoted for the SAP NW AS ABAP 7.50 SP2 – Developer Edition. If you change it to anything else, you get the error you mention. I just did a test installation and all went fine:

    Best regards

    • Hi Frank,

      I've entered vhcalnplci into the hostname file and vhcalnplci vhcalnplci.dummy.nodomain into the hosts file and still receive the error message below when executing ./

      'The hostname you have chosen is either configured on a loopback device or not active on this server, please check your configuration and hostname selection. If you are confident about your choice of hostname, start the install script with -s flag to skip the hostname check.

      The YAST2 setting also differ from yours and when I update the domain field is reverts it back to an empty field. Attached is the screenshot from my network settingsyast2-settings.jpg

      Can you help?

    Hi, I am having the same problem. However, I am very new to ubuntu 18 and I could not find the network settings screen as shown by you on other replies.

    Please advise
