Installation ORACLE 12 + ASM SINGLE

Hello everyone

We are installing Netweaver 7.5 - Distributed System - Oracle 12 -Suse Sles 12, firts We install ASCS in the applicatin server, then began the database installation in the database server, We choise the option ASM single, but when entered the "parameter on the database system", the installer generate a caution "an existing database was detected and can be made available" --Reuse Database (see image).


But the servers are new, I do not understand because it detects a database, when I have not installed anything yet.

anybody is clear as is the step by step for this type of installation?

We appreciated your help.

Best regards,

    Hi Erika,

    Please check the environment variables, whether any oracle related settings are existing.
    Further more, can you share us the sapinst_dev.log?

    Best regards,

    Hi, James.

    Attached file sapinst_dev.log env.txt . It is observed in the environment variables a 'ORACLE_SID = orcl ". He did not think or set up before starting the installation. It could be the reason for the sapinst report the existence of a previous installation of ORACLE? Is it then advisable to select the "Remove and Recreate Database" option?

    (Translation from Spanish to English with Google Translate).

    Best regards, Thanks.

    >>ORACLE_SID=orcl ORACLE_HOME=/opt/oracle/product/12cR1/db<<

    Is there an Oracle database installed here? Maybe that could be the reason. But this is found under the root user environment variables. Moreover these values cannot be considered for SAP installation as they are not based on SAP recommendations. As you are doing a distributed installation (DB on different host and I assume that you provided the correct hostname for the database) you should now connect to the DB host and check for any existing Oracle installations. Is the hostname for Oracle is alester? Check if there is another database installed.
