iaextract.c:420: Error opening archivefile

Hi Guys,

I am trying to run export using the master CD. I am getting the below error while executing SAPINST.

I have set TEMP and JAVA_HOME env as well.

:root:/usr/MasterHPUX/IM_HPUX_IA64/SAPINST/UNIX/HPIA64 => ./sapinst

iaextract.c:420: Error opening archivefile /usr/MasterHPUX/IM_HPUX_IA64/SAPINST/UNIX/HPIA64/./sapinst

:root:/usr/MasterHPUX/IM_HPUX_IA64/SAPINST/UNIX/HPIA64 => uname -a

HP-UX saab B.11.23 U ia64 0709882421 unlimited-user license

Let me know any one can help me on this.

Thanks,

Chitra

    Hi,

    iaextract.c:420: Error opening archivefile /usr/MasterHPUX/IM_HPUX_IA64/SAPINST/UNIX/HPIA64/./sapinst

    Looks like there is an error while trying to extract the mentioned file.

    Please check if all the files are extracted and verify that SAPINST is not corrupted.

    Also ensure:

    1. All files in the installation directory belong to user 'root' and group 'sapinst'.

    2. Filepermissions of all files should be at least '755'

    3. Umask-setting should be '022'.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Varun

    Hi,

    please check whether you have downlaoded correct version of installaiton master (based on machine type Itanium or PA-RISC)

    check permission for sapinst (755) and /tmp directory (777),

    check the format (bin or hex) used while copying files from DVD to local installation files server

    check user root belongs to sapinst group and umask is set to 022

    Best Regards,
