HXE 2.0 SPS03 (VM) configuration scripts fails



I've been trying to set up HXE 2.0 SPS03 with not much luck.

Configuration fails while executing script when is trying to create new hardware key (ID). Here is full error text "line 887: 1945 Illegal instruction (core dumped) /usr/sap/${SID}/HDB${INSTANCE}/exe/hdbnsutil -convertTopology >> $LOF_FILE 2>&1 Failed to change hardware key".

No further details are found in refereed log file. I did some troubleshooting and found out that hdbnsutil itself is failing, regardless of parameters passed on. As core dump is disabled, only evidence of this process dump is found in Linux system log: "hxehost kernel: [ 102.868935} traps: hdbnsutil[1945] trap invalid opcode ip:74fe106abc07 sp:7ffd2641bae0 error:0 in[7f4060bd3000+712000]traps:

Usually this would be related to incompatible Linux kernel but in case of prepared VM not sure. Below are environment details

Host: Intel 2 cores, 16GB RAM; Guest: VMware Workstation 12 Player

VM: SLES for SAP applications 12 SP2 & HXE 2.0 SPS03 server-only version

I have HXE 1.0 server+apps running ok on the same hw and VMware.

Any help would be appreciated.
