IDES install 4.7x200 SR1 does not create DB?



I want to install IDES on Windows 2000 Server SP4 running on MSSQL 2000.

I prep the environment based on the install guide doco. I used Local installation (don't have AD in the test environment).

I use SAP MSSQL CD to install the MSSQL 2000 which I ran through the provided VBS script. It installs smoothly and applies the SP and the patch for unicode chars.

I created PRDadm (PRD is the SAP ID) and other user account mentioned in the doco, assigned them as administrator.

I managed to get sapinst.exe running and installed the non-unicode ABAP central installation without any complaints. After the installation, I check that there is no DB created in the MSSQL instance. From google, I found that the instance name has to be the same as the SAP ID, is this true?

When I try to start the SAP instance from SAP mmc, it shows error saying it can't connect to DB, which is very obvious.

I wonder if there's anyone who has experience in IDES install (especially v. 4.7x200SR1)?

And also how do I dump the IDES db? It's not in the install guide?

Thank you.
