Issue with TREX 7.1 Rev 74 installation.

Dear Experts,

I had to de-install TREX as the usage type was DEFAULT while the need was for the type Embedded search.

Now after deinstallation , not able to install it.

Getting the following error:

>>>ERROR:PXM already on host (instance 06)
Exception description:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./support/_install.py", line 3562, in main
Installer().mainTrexAction()
File "./support/_install.py", line 703, in mainTrexAction
self.installInstance(step)
File "./support/_install.py", line 1330, in installInstance
self.initializeSetuplib()
File "./support/_install.py", line 1532, in initializeSetuplib
useTpmSuffix= self.optionTpmSuffix)
File "/tmp/trx/tx_trex_content/TX_LINUX_X86_64/support/setuplib.py", line 1302, in init
raise SetupException("%s already on host (instance %s)"%(self.sid, str(self.instancehound.getNbrForSID(self.sid))))
SetupException: >>>ERROR:PXM already on host (instance 06)

I have to use the same SID and same instance. Any idea where things could have been missed? how can I go through it? I am using

1249465 - TREX 7.10: Installing TREX for Embedded Search

on Linux, so running ./install.sh script.

    /usr/sap/SID/TRX06 was a file system not a directory within /usr/sap/SID.

    So I had to unmounts the FS /usr/sap/SID/TRX06, which solved the issue and I could finish the installation with

    ./install.sh

    Hi

    I think uninstall of PXM instance not completed, Kindly uninstall the PXM and then try again.

    Hi Tariq,

    FYI a usage type of DEFAULT instead of EMBEDDED SEARCH for TREX is not a problem and you could have retained it for ESH/Embedded Search. In fact there is no requirement to deploy the EMBEDDED SEARCH usage type at all for Embedded Search.

    Regards,

    Fergal.
