sapinst failed

Try to insatll solution manager 4.0 on HP-UX 11.11

when I did the sapinst, the gui can be started but it shows me an error. When I puch the ok button, the gui colsed. I don't know what wrong.


  1. ./sapinst

Starting GuiServer using:

/opt/java1.4/bin/java -cp /oracle/tmp/sapinst_exe.24603.1190887332/JAR/instgui.jar:/oracle/tmp/sapinst_exe.24603.1190887332/JAR/inqmyxml.jar SDTServer config=jar:sdtserver.xml guiport=21212 sapinsthost=localhost sapinstport=21200 guistart=true

>>>>>>>>>> the gui started, and shows

You start the installation without specifying a startup file via SAPINST_CONTROL_URL in the directory /oracle/tmp/sapinst_exe.24603.1190887332. The framework asumes that control.xml or product.catalog has to be used but there exist now such files.If there exist a installation with a different startup filename please specify that filename via SAPINST_CONTROL_URL.

>>>>>>>>>> after I click ok. the gui closed

here is what's the env

    Hi Iwang,

    This env. variable should be like JAVA_HOME=<dest.>, did U check with javac? did you added the IP Host name in the /etc/host file?

      The reason is the wrongly mount file system of CDROM. According to pdf, it should be:

      1. mount -r -F cdfs -o rr /dev/dsk/c4t2d0 /cdrom

      I didn't notice this. So the sapinst must follow every step in the manual.

      Cloesed this isuse.
