Has LiveCache been installed?


I am installing SCM5.0 on Windows 2003 x64 hardware and SQL Server 2005. I installed SCM5.0, Livecache, and everything else on the same box. The installation completed without problem. Now I am in post-installation steps and I have following questions:

1. How do I know the livecache is actually installed? In my case, a separate database for livecache will be created in SQL Server or it still will create a separate MAXDB database? In SQL Server I only see one database(APS)of my SCM5.0 no database of livecache (LCS the name I gave during the installation). I did find it created a sapdb directory in OS level, but seems no MAXDB database created.

2. The installation also created DBM Command Line Interface but when I tried to connect it using the username/password, it said database instance not exist.

3. When I run transaction LC10 inside SCM Instance, click LiveCache monitor and I got error message "database instance not found"

All these are telling me livecache and its database may not be even installed. Is this correct? How do I know the livecache get installed? Again, my installation went through no problem. Any input/experience are greatly appreciated.

    Dear Mr. Ran,

    Please check, if you installed only the liveCache client software

    on the server.

    1. Please run the command 'sdbregview -l' on the server to review

    the list database installed packages. Please overview the OSS notes

    546737 & 599129.

    Please also check the database installation log in <IndepDataPath>/wrk,

    Please update with the output of the following commands:

    dbmcli -s dbm_version

    dbmcli -s inst_enum

    <To display a list of all registered versions of the database software>

    dbmcli -s db_enum

    < To display a list of all registered database instances >

    < Please review 'DBMCLI Command List' at

    -> Command Reference for Working with the Database Manager CLI >

    2. Please update what dbm command you run & what error did you get.

    Please check the errors in XCMDOUT.LOG

    3. Please let me know, if you already reported this problem in OSS message.

    Please let me know what CD did you use for the liveCache installation.

    Please see the liveCache installation guide at SAP Market place

    ->mySAP Business Suite Applications -> mySAP SCM ->

    Using SAP SCM 5.0 Server ->

    "Installation - SAP liveCache Technology ..."

    PS: You can find more documentation about the liveCache under the following

    links:: -> mySAP SCM Technology

    Thank you and best regards, Natalia Khlopina
