SWPM complains with 720EXT Kernel DVD but 720EXT is mandatory for Solaris 11


I am trying to install a SolMan 7.1 on Solaris 11.

As documented in SAP Note 1669684, the only supported Kernel for Solaris 11 is EXT Kernel.

Therefore I provided Solaris 720EXT Kernel DVD.

The installer complains with the following error:

You entered: /xxx/D51045219

Found the label SAP:AKK:720_EXT:DVD_KERNEL:SAP Kernel 720_EXT:Dxxxxxxxx:*:D51045219

but need the label SAP:AKK:72:UKERNEL:*:SOLARIS_SPARC:*

How do you proceed when you face this problem?

Thanks in advance for your answer,


Well you could provide the 720 kernel and then overwrite it with 720_EXT once decompression is complete. It might easily be a bug with SWPM.

Regards, Juan
