SAPCAR: could not open for writing (error 28). Permission denied

Hi All,

We are encountering issues with the SAPCAR command for the SAP Router.file.

solman:somadm 51> cd /usr/sap/saprouter/
solman:somadm 52> ls -ltr
total 7968
-rwxrwxr-x 1 somadm root 4430400 Dec 15 17:48 SAPCAR_712-80000935.EXE
-rwxrwxr-x 1 somadm root 2330807 Dec 15 17:48 SAPCRYPTOLIBP_8506-20011697.SAR
-rwxrwxr-x 1 somadm root 1371881 Dec 19 09:49 saprouter_34-70000854.sar
solman:somadm 53> SAPCAR_712-80000935.EXE -xvf saprouter_34-70000854.sar
SAPCAR: processing archive saprouter_34-70000854.sar (version 2.01)
x niping
SAPCAR: could not open for writing niping (error 28). Permission denied
solman:somadm 54> SAPCAR_712-80000935.EXE -xvf SAPCRYPTOLIBP_8506-20011697.SAR
SAPCAR: processing archive SAPCRYPTOLIBP_8506-20011697.SAR (version 2.01)
x sapcrypto.mf
SAPCAR: could not open for writing sapcrypto.mf (error 28). Permission denied

Appreciate if somebody could assist with diagnosing the correct permission issue here.

    Hello Indraneel,

    What are the permissions of the folder itself (/usr/sap/saprouter/)?

    Check it with "ls -lad /usr/sap/saprouter".

    Regards,

    IsaĆ­as
