SAPHOSTAGENT not getting started

Hi

In our system, we have SAPHOSTAGENT installed. But the SAPHOSTAGENT is not getting started automatically.

If we start it manually by using the command saphostexec -restart, it is giving the following error.

[ERROR] Profile permission violation. (usr/sap/hostctrl/exe/host_profile)

Can anyone please help me with starting SAPHOSTAGENT.

We are on IBM iSeries and DB2.

Awaiting your inputs.

Regards,

Ram.

    Hi,

    The SAP Host agent starting/stopping commands are mentioned here. The executable can be run by root user only (as root is the owner after installation by default). Try running the commands with root access.

    Yes. I am with Srikishan. Host agent should be started/stopped with root. Please check permissions of /usr/sap/hostctrl/exe/host_profile as well.
