Dear Expert Anyone came across the following situation whereby after repackaged an offline SEP Linux Agent install (Command: ./LinuxInstaller -repackage)while execute the installation command: ./Linuxinstaller it will not able to proceed with the following error below, Error: "./linuxinstaller: cannot execute binary file exec format error"Regards
This is error usually is from trying to run an executable on incompatible architecture. SEP for Linux 14.3 RU1 and newer support only x86_64. See Supported kernels of Symantec Linux Agent and compare with output of "uname -r" on your system.
Hi Ed. Thank you for your feedback. Here is my next question for your confirmation. As above, I repackaged the offline SEP Linux installer on a Redhat 7 system with kernel version (e.g: 3.10.0-1160.el7.x86_64).After repackage is done. I transferred the offline installation package into another Redhat 7 system using the same version 3.10.0-1160.el7.x86_64. After running both chmod command and ./LinuxInstaller command to start the installation. The same error above appears. Confirmation: In this scenarios, Is this consider incompatible architecture?
Your kernel appears to meet the requirements. I don't know what's wrong, otherwise. You should Google the error message ("cannot execute binary file exec format error") -- it is not uncommon and you may get a clue from those results. For example, it is often suggested to check the contents of the executable with the Linux "file" command. That is, what is output of "file LinuxInstaller"?
