Installation error in step 11.. Error message"dbmcli called for PARAM_INIT_ISNTA failed"SAP ECC6(SUSE10 & MAXDB7.6)

Hi Exparts,

I am facing an issue to install ECC 6.0(MAXDB-7.6 & SUSE10).

1. First I started fresh installation that time is stuck(hanged for 2days) into step 13(DB -), Then I googled the error and found that I put special character in PASSWORD.

2. So, I stop Installation and tried to start installation with the option New Installation with new PASSWORD without any special character.

3 . But in Step 11 it failed with error message "dbmcli called for PARAM_INIT_ISNTA failed. Check XCMDOUT.LOG"


I cant find & open XCMDOUT.LOG as the location is not found.

Can you please tell me how to open XCMDOUT.LOG to check the error..

Then I tried,

dbmcli -d QAS -u CONTROL,control

It failed(ERR_USRFAIL: User authorization failed)

dbmcli -d QAS -u CONTROL,abcd12345(main password of installation)


(Connection failed to node (local) for database:

wrong user/password).

    I think you need to deinstall as much as possible using sapinst first, can then run installer again.
    If you already did that, can you please share the sapinst_dev.log file?

    Best regards,
