Installation of SAP Netweaver Beta fails


I´ve downloaded the beta version of the developer edition yesterday (13.09.03). During installation, just after license agreement, I get a script error (TypeError: entry.getIPAdresses is not a function). See log file below.

Can anybody help?

I don´t use DHCP. Thus I´ve installed the Loopback network adapter. Are there any specials regarding the configuration?

Configuration of my first ethernet adapter

ip-address, network mask

Configuration of the loopback adapter,, hosts file: ht_sap

Thanks in advance


Here is the log file:

Please be patient ...

    I am no expert but as it is complaining about IP check and DNS is in your error text I would suggest that you have a DNS problem.

    To get round it just add your ip addresses in your hosts file.


    Good luck
