Permission Denied Error in SAP HANA Express 2.0

16 Feb 2018 8:39 am || 1

Hello SAP Experts,

While installing SAP HANA Express 2.0 on Suse 12 SP1 I am getting an error 'Permission Denied'.

Note: I am following installation guide: download, extract (hxe.tgz and hxexsa.tgz) and started

I also tried to change owner and group on the file/files before starting the installation but the error can not be solved.

Please, can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong and How can I resolve this issue?

    Please check the account you are installing the SAP HANA Express 2.0. The account you are installing to must have root permissions because installing the SAP server requires root permissions.

    There can be an issue of file permissions.  

    Now if running the installer as root fails, please try:

    #chmod -R 777 /root/Documents/HANA_EXPRESS_20
