We have installed ERP 6.0 and NW Portal 7.02 in the same Windows server 2008 with MaxDB 7.6.
We are now planning to install Solution Manager 7.1 with MaxDB 7.8, for that we need to upgrade earlier instances from MaxDB 7.6 to MaxDB 7.8.
For upgrading to MaxDB from 7.6 to 7.8 i have below queries.
1) Is it possible to upgrade directly from 7.6 to 7.8
2) Solution manager installation will supports MaxDB 7.8?
3) The upgrade can be done in one instance or two instances.
4)We have downloaded the MaxDB Software (51042685_10 for Windows) and MaxDB update software (51042685_12 for Windows). As per the standard upgrade document it says to run below command from the MAXDB_UPDATE folder
"DBUPDATE.BAT -s <SAPSID> –d <DBSID> -u <DBM,DBM password> [ -dir <temporary directory> ]"
I have a doubt that the download which i have MaxDB update software (51042685_12) is only 240 KB. Whether we need to start upgrade from 51042685_12 software or 51042685_10 (In this DVD also DBUPDATE.BAT is available).
