This problem is caused by SELinux enforcing an access policy. The policy forbids the installer from changing the attributes for memory protection of a memory segment.
RedHat Enterprise Linux has a SELinux set to “Enforcing” mode by default.
1. Change status of RHEL SELinux:
By default it is enforcing, Change it to Permissive.
Type the following into the command line
  • Vi /etc/selinux/config
  • Change SELINUX=Permissive
2. Run the file to complete the installation.
