SAPInst in RHEL 5.4: No GUI server connected; waiting for a connection on h


Hello guys.

I'm trying to Install SAP Netweaver 7 SR3 into a VM with RHEL5.4 and I'm getting the following issue with SAPINST:


[root@Z1T1BRPAVTD07 IM_LINUX_X86_64]# umask 022

[root@Z1T1BRPAVTD07 IM_LINUX_X86_64]# export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_19

[root@Z1T1BRPAVTD07 IM_LINUX_X86_64]# export PATH=$PATH:/usr/sbin

[root@Z1T1BRPAVTD07 IM_LINUX_X86_64]# export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH

[root@Z1T1BRPAVTD07 IM_LINUX_X86_64]# export SHLIB_PATH=/sapmnt/W5X/exe

[root@Z1T1BRPAVTD07 IM_LINUX_X86_64]# ./sapinst

guiengine: No GUI server connected; waiting for a connection on host

Z1T1BRPAVTD07, port 21200 to continue with the installation


The SAPInst GUI starts and show me a message saying that it's not possible to connect to the Server.

I've checked:

- Libraries installed according to the Installation Guide

- Java SDK version (it is a litlle bit old (_19 ... current is _31), but should work, right?

- SWAP and Kernel parameters

- Port Connection (netstat -an shows that the port 21212 has a listener)
