Installing Solman 7.1 with SQL 2008 R2 error DB doesnt exist


Hi All,

I am currently installing Solman 7.1 on a SQL 2008 R2 database. I am doing a Homogeneous System Copy (MS SQL Server-specific: Detach/Attach or Backup/Restore)

I have completed the restore of the DataBase.

When I go through SAPInst I follow all the steps and everything seems to work fine until I get to the point where I point to the Kernel files and the install looks at the DataBase and I get the below error:

An error occurred while processing option SAP Solution Manager 7.1 > Software Life-Cycle Options > System Copy > MS SQL Server > Target System Installation > Central System > Based on AS ABAP and AS Java > Central System( Last error reported by the step :Errors when executing sql command: [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Database '<SID> does not exist. Make sure that the name is entered correctly. [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Function sequence error

Any help is welcome.
