Instalattion Problem Urgent

Im trying to install a second instance of SAP with MAXDB and i get the following error during instalation

ERR: InstallRegistry::newPackage(): can't add Package "Base" -> "/sapdb/programs": already exists!

any ideas?

This is maxdb 7.6.00.35 64 bit installation. The current /sapdb/programs has a higher version.

    As I understand I can use /sapdb/programs directory for several sap instances.

    I made an Central System instalation , never seen this 2nd option you talk about, I can imagine there should be a check box somewhere to alert the instalatoin that this directory already exists, but didnt found one during instalation.

    Could you give me more details about this 2nd option.

    Thank you.

    What release do you use? I doubt that sapinst supports that by default on versions lower 2004sSR2...

    Ok, but it is possible then to have 2 different database instances sharing /sapdb/programs and /sapdb/data or am I wrong?

    Yes i have no process running with sdb or devadm or sqddev , i shutted down the v_server.

    Still no good.

    I think im gonna change the /sapdb/program directory for the 2nd instance.

    What u think?

    Thanks for all ur help.

    • I'd open an OSS call (or wait until monday when Berlin is up again and also here), because this is truly an error either of sapinst or the SDBINST program.

      I'd not put /sapdb/programs somewhere else since it's the independent program path and it usually works this way, you've done everything right.

      What you can do if you want to experiment a bit is, you can download a new build from SMP and replace that with the one in the subdirectory on the dvd, just copy the files over and leave LABEL.ASC in place. Newer versions may not have that problem...

    I'm trying my fourth install of IM_HPUX_PARISC Java addon for ABAP and I'm getting the same error.

    The first three Dev, Test, Production were fine. I'm trying a sandbox which is a copy of prod and this error is occurring. I've tried with the newest version of sapinst and still the same.
