Similar error (permission denied) will also occur if you run brtools activity using <sid>adm user.
Environment : Unix system, with Oracle database. This likely happens after you upgrade an SAP Kernel or updating BRTOOLS patch level.


Run this command using root user to update authorization needed for running brtools:
./saproot.sh <SID>

for example : ./saproot.sh DEV

  1. also take care on SAP notes 420417 when u’re using Solaris.
    it’s about facing whoami error when execute saproot.sh script.

  2. and please make sure to run the script from within /sapmnt//exe folder, or you will get some error on icmbnd file permissione.

  3. incredible…
