Install SAP using sudo

Hi,

I am trying to install an additional SAP application server on a hardened RHEL Linux server which does not allow me to log on as root user.

I would like to check if a workaround can be used, such as using sudo su - or creating a new user with root UID.

Thanks!

    Hi Gordon,

    If sudo su - works then you can switch to root and carry out the installation.

    If however switching to root isn't allowed create a script wherein you can export environment variables like PATH,TEMP,JAVA_HOME and in the end of script call sapinst (complete path).

    Once SAPinst opens you can start the installation.

    Regards.

    Ruchit.
