Assertion failed: Unable to setup database device

Hi Gurus,

I am trying to install SAP ERP 6.0 EHP 8 on SUSE 12 and Sybase 16.0..02.02

This SUSE 12 instance is setup on VMWare

While installing, the setup is giving me error while configuring the database. The error is "Assertion failed: Unable to setup database device"

I have referred few SAP Notes for this but could not find any precise solution. In one of the SAP Notes, I found out the reason being that Sybase is using more than 4100 MB of RAM. I tried the installation by allocating 15 GB of RAM but the error is same

Can anyone advice on this situation or any exact SAP Note which gives solution on this

Issue resolved due to shortage of space in /sybase/SID

Error was occurring before consuming the available space in this filesystem thus was confusing

Thanks Mario Luis Faria dos Santos
