I am in the process on installing SRM 5.0 on Red Hat 4 x86_64. The installation has reached phase 24 which is the start instance stage. From what I can see it looks like a permissions issue when the message server tries to start. The central instance comes up fine but the message server start fails.
This is a single stack installation therefore there is no Java stack.
Following parameters were defined during the install:
The ABAP messaging Service Port - 3618
Internal ABAP Messaging Service Port - 3918
I confirmed that the sapmsDB0 service entry with port 3618 was defined in the /etc/services file. I have successfully installed the same product on a RH4 32 bit box without any problems and have compared the services file from that server and it only had the one entry which is the port 3618 one. Therefore I am not missing any entries from the services file.
The log file from the dev_ms:
