consolidation of the 2 Windows-partition to the one


I use SAPDB on Windows.

Currently I use 2 Windows-partition for my SAPDB (let's say DATA1 and DATA2), where the data files and log files are written. Because of DATA1 seems to be full, I have redirected the new data and log files to the DATA2.

Now I would like to consolidate the both logical partittion to the one.

<b>Is it possible, what should be checked?</b>

Thank you for helpful information

    If you want to create only one partition for the other two you need to delete the partitions, create one big, format it and restore the database back.

    If one of those partitions is your system drive, you need to reinstall.

    You can use the Windows "Volume Manager" to make a strip set on top of the two but his works only if the partitions were created as "dynamic".

    • Hello Markus,

      when and how do you apply the MAXDB Patchset if required.

      I have a DB, but the Installation prompts for RDBMS CD.

      When I am Prompted to do the restore, I have executables,

      but I'd like to restore a DB-Backup.

      Since documentation is very poor for patching Maxdb,

      (It basicly says do

      sdbupd - d SID - u control,control

      and wait for message "finished")

      how to proceed, if you do not have a DB yet.

      I used to do

      sdbupd - d SID - u control,control

      on my source system to apply the patchset, but at the very end,

      it puts the DB online to load the system tables.

      How would this work without a database (that is not restored at that point)?

      Best regards
