    Hi,

    Yes, this is due to Xmanager and no DISPLAY variable set. This is a frequently asked question and if you do a simple search on "guiengine: no GUI connected" in this forum you will see many solutions to the same problem.

    Regards,

    Nelis

    Hi,

    1. Log on to the installation host as root.

    2. Mount the DVD with the installation files.

    3. Run the GUI from an existing directory by entering the following commands:

    mkdir <SAPinstGUI_Dir>

    chmod 777 <SAPinstGUI_Dir>

    cd <SAPinstGUI_Dir>

    <DVD_DIR>/SAPINST/UNIX/<OS>/startInstGui.sh

    If a SAPinst server already runs on this host, the SAPinst GUI automatically connects to the server.

    Otherwise, the SAP Installation GUI Connection window appears. In the latter case, enter the host name of the installation host and the same port as SAPinst uses on the remote host and choose OK. SAPinst GUI then connects to the SAPinst server.
