OnCommand 3.1.3 fails to install on Linux


I'm trying to install OnCommand System Manager 3.1.3 on a virtualised Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS x64 box.


Following the NetApp instructions provided ( I'm using the following command:


rpm -i sysmgr-setup-3-1-3-linux.rpm


I get the following back:


rpm: RPM should not be used directly install RPM packages, use Alien instead!
rpm: However assuming you know what you are doing...
error: open of sysmgr-setup-3-1-3-linux.rpm failed: No such file or directory


I've also tried using the Alien utility as suggested:


sudo alien -i sysmgr-setup-3-1-3-linux.rpm
File "sysmgr-setup-3-1-3-linux.rpm" not found.


The file is most definately downloaded. It's located in /home/manager/downloads (see attached file).


Does anyone have any experience with this problem? Any help or advice would be much appreciated as there appears to be little on the web.


Thanks in advance.

It turns out OnCommand System Manager 3.x is only supported on commercial Linux releases. Specifically Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 7.1 or 7.2 and Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11.


...thanks NetApp.

I did it (install to debian/ubuntu/mint).
inside the rpm package, you need to edit the java validation script (/SCRIPTS/PREIN):
print_java_required_error; # exit 1 and after that already RPM to DEB with the help of an alien
