Hi All,

     We are trying to install SAP NW 7.31 with maxdb as the DB using SWPM.

During Database instance installation we are getting an error

    Hi

    Source : http://scn.sap.com/message/8681158

    A work around is to point the SAPinst tool to the directory containing the 7.6.5 install/upgrade software.  You will need to create a LABEL.ASC file in this directory to get SAPinst to use this directory for the installation.

    We created the following entry in the LABEL.ASC:

    MAXDB:760xx:RDBMS:MAX DB:WINDOWS_X86_64:AMD64:CD510xxxxx

    You will need to adjust this for your linux system.  The best way to determine the label you will need is to run SAPinst on the 7.6.5 directory without the LABEL.ASC.  The check will fail (as it can't find the LABEL.ASC file) but it will tell you what it is looking for.  You can use this information to build the LABEL.ASC file.

    We used this method when we created a number of systems so we would not have to perform the installation and then patch the database. 

    Best Regards

    Marius
