AIX installation with MAXDB


I am trying to install SAP Netweaver SPS 16 on AIX box

The environment is as follows:

  1. uname -a

AIX ctsaix02 3 5 005438AD4C00

Memory : 4GB

The installation fails with following erro:

MDB-07021 Registry information for database software found in system but the software check failed. The software was not properly removed or installed incorrectly.

I had deletede the folders in the /sapdb directory manually.

How can i resolve this issue.

The installer is not proceeding ahead

    You can manually uninstall the current database using sdbuninst, as you said you already deleted everything under folder /sapdb you will be not able to do it now.

    Now first manually install the software using sdbinst and then proceed with the sapinst, sapinst will skip the DB s/w installation if it find any.

    Hope this will help you.

    Best Regards,
