Updating Live Cache client software



To correct a bug, I was told by SAP to update the client part of my LiveCache from to

I followed the instructions in sap notes 649814 and 1092397. But I have a problem:

if I

launch theSDBSETUP, I have a popup saying:

Test extraction failed

Following programs are running:

SDBRUN (pid=938010)

Please stop all these processes

In my unix shell, this PID correspond to :

root 938010 483328 0 10:09:31 pts/0 0:03 /sapdb/programs/bin/../install/SDBRUN --programname SDBSETUP --main SAPDB::Install::App::StartSetup::main -splash_fast -installed_sdbrun_used

Which is the process that launches the upgrade.

If I use the SDBINST, I have a similar problem:


/home/echange/Patch_MAXDB/maxdb-as_runtime-aix5-64bit-ppc-7_6_04_11 > /sapdb/programs/bin/SDBINST -profile "Runtime For SAP AS"
