Cannot Initialize LiveCache

Hi All,

I am going through the Post Steps of my LiveCache install manual. When I run transaction LC10 -> Enter DB Connection ->LiveCache Monitoring ->

Administration ->Operating, Administration ->Initialize LiveCache, it

gives me an error:

1/15/2008 12:23:27



Logical Command: DBMRFC

Parameter: exec_lcinit -e unicode init

Name and Server : LCX - sapliv01


Command : exec_lcinit -e unicode init

Error : DBM Error

Return Code : -24909

Error Message : ERR_DBAUNKNOWN: Database system administ

My RFC's test successful.

A test in DB59 is successful.


Has anyone experienced this?

    Hi Diane,

    did you install a DB instance in the LiveCache with LCX ? ... it doesn't sound like that ...

    You should have a look with the DBMGUI and check which DB instances are available there.

    What DB Patch are you using ?

    Hi Diana,

    the error basically says that the server does not recognize the given DB Administrator (SYSDBA).

    I'd first check the credentials supplied in LC10. There you maintain user SAP<sid> for SQL access and a DBM user. Check the DBM user's password (e.g. by logging on through DBMGui). Also check that this user has sufficient rights to perform the initialization.

    Best regards,


    PS. The server version is shown in DBMGui, once you connected to the server. You can also display it by executing the following command from any host that has the MaxDB client software installed:

    dbmcli -d <lc_name> -u <dbm_user>,<pwd> -n <lc_host> dbm_version

    On i5/OS you'd have to execute the command from the PASE shell (CALL QP2TERM).
