I have tried to install this using Open Suse on a laptop. The install runs for quite some time and fails:

WARNING 2017-10-02 15:46:32.469 (root/sapinst) id=modlib.jslib.childAppReturn Execution of the command "isql64 -w999 -USAPSR3 -Svcalnplci:4901 -X" finished with return code 255. Output: Password: Msg 10513, Level 16, State 1: Server 'NPL': Temporary database based on specific binding could not be assigned. Since binding is hard, this results in a login failure. Msg 4002, Level 14, State 1: Server 'NPL': Login failed. CT-LIBRARY error: ct_connect(): protocol specific layer: external error: The attempt to connect to the server failed. INFO 2017-10-02

15:46:32.471 (root/sapinst) Working directory changed to /tmp/sapinst_instdir/NW73/SBC/STANDARD. ERROR 2017-10-02 15:46:32.472 (root/sapinst) id=ind-rel.ind-os.ind-db.assertionFailed errno=CJS-00030 Assertion failed: Unable to verify database access for login SAPSR3. Refer to trace file sapinst_dev.log for further information.

I have to my knowlege installed all pre-reqs:

  • csh – Ubuntu and Debian require you to install csh before you start the ABAP installation
  • libaio – SAP Sybase ASE requires the libaio library to start the installation
  • 32bit libraries – SAP Management Console (SAPMC) requires 32bit libraries (ia32,glibc.i686) for ASE related functionalities
  • uuidd – SAP AS ABAP requires the OS to run uuidd service to ensure the uniqueness of GUIDs. For more information – eg on why this is extremely important – please see archive thread 3379688: Is it mandatory to have uuidd for SAP installation
  • English – SAP AS ABAP requires that you configure English (LANG=en_US.UTF-8) as the operating system language

I do not know what else failed. Thanks for any help in advance. Get logs here:

Hi Dan,

One possible issue is that the ASE License may have expired. You can check this by opening the license file in a text editor (cat, nano):


If the license has expired, the next question is Do you need SAP SLT?

If not, can you please install the newest version, 751 SP02:

SAP AS ABAP 751 SP02: Dev edition to download

and follow this, step-by-step guide:

SAP AS ABAP 751 SP02: Installation Guide

(The following overview page shows all valid versions as soon as available: Developer Editions of SAP AS ABAP ).

If you need SAP SLT, OR if your ASE license version is valid, please just let me know.

Best wishes Julie.


Hi Julie

Thanks for your prompt response. But unfortunately I made a mistake and I did download the latest and greatest. My License expires March 31 2018. This does not seem to be a licensing issue. Anything else I can try?
