NW7.0 installation hangs on Linux Red Hat 4 sp6 X86_64 - urgent please


Hi all!

I perform Netweaver7.0 SR2 installation and it hangs during "Install common

system files" phase without any error in logs and doesn't create any system files and links apart from transport catalogs. I think there is a problem with SAP users and groups.

Trying to avoid problem, I dropped users SIDadm, oraSID and recreated them with empty

passwords and with different UID. It worked for another similar installation where I got the same problem, but this time it didn't work and the installation is still hanging on very simple operations.

New installation Netweaver7.0 SR2 ABAP

o Operating System

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS v. 4.6 for 64-bit AMD64/Intel EM64T

o Database Version and patch level


0.Sapinst version

version 701, make variant 700_REL, build 943054

compiled on Nov 25 2007, 21:41:03

1. Media used

Disks from SWDC, downloaded Oct2007

2. Procedure used

Just general procedure

All works were performed according to the notes

Note 171356 - SAP software on Linux: Essential information

Note 722273 - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4: Installation and upgrade

Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks in advnce,
