How to change default installation directory sapinst_instdir TO other drive

Hi,

I am installing ECC 6.0 and have enough space in my disk for data files.

I have alloted 20GB in C: drive which also comprise of Operating System.sapinst_ instdir directory grows more than 10GB and due to lack of space installation fails. How can i change th default sapinst_instdir directiory from C drive to other drive. can i use any software to change partition? ( with OS windows server 2003)

I have also encountered an error at import phase of first job and after changing *.TSK file the installation proceeds. will this cause any serious problem.

regards,

Anand

    Hello,

    I understand from ur post is u want to create the instalaltion logs on another directory instaed of C:\ drive....if so u can follow the procedure as describe below..

    create temp directory in any other drive called D:\ drive...

    go in to that temp drive.....

    and fire the executable from that temp directory.....if u r executable in e:\ drive then....

    d:\temp>e:\installer\insatall.exe

    There should not be any problem if you have 20 GB free space in C: drive becuase SAP is not going to create 20GB installation log files for installation. Could you please check the installation log files what is causing the problem?

    for more details on space requirements you can refer installation guide.

    please paste the log from the currnet log file too.

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    Out of the 20GB in C drive 10GB is used by OS and other installations. The installation log files of ECC 6.0 grows more than 4GB for the following tasks....

    SAPAPPL0

    SAPAPPL1

    SAPSSEXC

    Let me see whether this time i could finish the installation since i have changed the installation directory

    regards,

    Anand
