ABAP 7.51 Installation Failure

I'm installing SAP NW 7.51 Developer Edition, and im getting this error (see below).

I've check the license file and it seems to be OK, it expires on 2018.

Could anyone advice?

Thank you.

    Ok, i managed to install, by using ./ install.sh -g

    But now i have an issue with the DB, i guess I'm making another post.

    date.txtdf.txthostname.txtrpm.txtrsecssfx.txtsapinst.txtsapinst-dev.txtsyslib-priv.txt

    This are all the log files i could find.

    I've looked at them but couldnt find anything that help me (with my limited experience) to fix the issue.

    Note: I've deleted the master password from the logs.

    Log file sapinst_loginquirer.log is empty.

    Did you rename the log files? It was pointing to sapinst_dev.log but you attached a sapinst-dev.txt

    If you need to find it:

    find / -name "sapinst_dev.log"

    Otherwise I saw some messages that hinted something might not be right with your DNS/networking setup. Please do a

    cat /etc/resolv.conf

    and make sure you have entries.

    If it's a local installation, you should also have the following entries in your hosts file:

    $ cat /etc/hosts
    ...<snip irrelevant stuff>...
    127.0.0.1    wdflbmd6865, wdflbmd6865.dummy.nodomain    <-- not sure if needed, my entry is from 7.4 NPL
    127.0.0.1    vhcalnplci, vhcalnplci.dummy.nodomain

    The installation should create the vhcalnplci entry, but it can't hurt to add it manually.

    • Hi Matias,

      Did you run : cat /etc/resolv.conf as Mike suggested?
      I ask because I see in your sapinst-dev.txt that you get the error "WARNING[E] 2017-09-17 16:11:31.695 (root/sapinst) (startInstallation) [/bas/749_REL/bc_749_REL/src/ins/SAPINST/impl/src/syslib/network/syxxcnwmgt.cpp:226] id=syslib.network.getInfoFailed errno=FSL-03003 iastring CSyNetworkMgtImpl::getDNSDomainName() const

      Unable to determine parameter "DNS domain name". DNS domain name is not configured in resolv.conf (UNIX) or the registry (Windows) and neither getaddrinfo nor gethostbyname could retrieve it."

      Failed action: with parameters

      Error number 301 error type SPECIFIC_CODE

      I may not be able to help, but that is what I would do first.

      Best wishes Julie.
