    In case of unix environment,

    /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/profile is a softlink to /sapmnt/<SID>/Profile. So, basically, the location is same.

    if you go to the location /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/ and do the "ls -ltr" command, you can see the link.

      Hi,

      In /sapmnt/SID/profile, exe, global these are softlinks which will finally points you to the /usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe, profile, global.. These softlinks are created during the SAP Installations. For better understanding go through the SAP Installation document in that it will be mentioned very clearly about the File Structure.
