MSCS Installation; Having problem generating temp. license key



SAP ECC 6.0 (MSCS) installation.

Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition (64 bit Itanium)

SQL 2005

We are having a problem with the Central Instance Installation Step at

the point where you must generate a license key using Solution Manager.

The installation does not accept any key generated by Solution Manager

using the virtual host name (SAPCIGRP) - the virtual host name for the

SAP Cluster Group.

We greatly appreciate help on this issue so we can finish up


<b>Steps for the Reconstruction </b>

MSCS Installation ERP 2005 ABAP+Java (ECC 6.0)

Central Instance Installation Step (Step 8 Installation Guide):

The Installation asks for Solution Manager License Key.

In Solution Manager we created the PRD System (SMSY), then select the

system and select the button "Generate Installation/Upgrade key".

We enter the following:

System ID: PRD

System Number: 02 (also tried 00,01 with no luck)

Message Server: SAPCIGRP

[host names for PRD:

Node A: sapprdci

Node B: sapprddb

SAP Cluster Group: sapcigrp (virtual host name)

SQL Cluster Group: sapdbgrp (virtual host name)]

The installation also asks for instance number (port) for the central

instance; we are entering "02". ASCS (Central Services for ABAP)

is "00" & SCS (Cental Services Instance) is "01".
