SAP NW 7.51 SP02 Trial Installation is aborted

Hello everybody,

I'm trying to install the downloadable local Trial-Version of SAP NW 7.51 SP02 and after setting up a VM and installing openSuse the ABAP-installation itself is failing with the message above. Did anyone experience the same problem? At least one more person posted this on the original installation-tutorial-blog by julie plummer, but wasn't answered, so since she asked to put further questions here i'm doing this.

Hope somebody can help. Thanks

    I'm having presumably the same error though following the instructions given in the tutorial by Julie Plummer, I attached the log. Did you solve your problem?

    julie.plummer Could you please look into this?

    The error message seems to be the same as frdric.girod had here. But I'm not sure how he solved it, he wrote something about sudo instead of su, but the does not contain a su before it's failing and the above mentioned error appears both when started as root as well as when started with sudo ./

    Hi Joern, hi Florian,

    Are either of you using Software Provision Manager? If so, it won't work.

    Also, have you tried renaming the database or SAP system? If so, don't.


    • Make sure the Username (for openSUSE) you created at the beginning is NOT “sap”
    • Change your host file entry to: vhcalnpli.dummy.nodomain vhcalnpli (you can see the correct syntax in your hostfile, it is <IP address> <FQDN> <short-hostname>)
    • Use command hostname, it should be vhcalnpli
    • Use command hostname – f, it should be vhcalnpli.dummy.nodomain
    • Check your system language with the command echo $LANG, if its NOT “en_US.UTF-8” use LANG=en_US.UTF-8 to change that.

    • Hi Jorn,

      I am getting the same error as you "Installation of NPL failed", i tried the solution above with the hostname without c but i didn't work either.

      can you please explain in detail how you proceeded?

      thanks in advance
