DB instance not found


When i try to connect to dbmcli the result is

bsa0938:sqdu00 111> dbmcli -U c

Error! Connection failed to node bsa0938 for database U00:

database instance not found

bsa0938:sqdu00 111>

When i checked the database.ini file in /sapdb/data/config there is nothing inside that file

when i checked the dbm.prt file i could see somebody executed db_unreg command.

But the data files and logfiles are there.

To run db_reg command i need that dbmcli working and can v run the db_reg command?.

can anybody help me out here?

    Hi Durairaj,

    first of all: databases.ini is nothing you should "look into".

    Use "dbmcli db_enum" to figure out what databases there are available.

    To re-register a database use the following commands:

    dbmcli -R "<dependend_path>" db_create <DBSID> control,<control-pw>

    If really all files are still there, then this should be sufficient to access your db instance again.

    • Hello!

      What is the result of 'dbmcli inst_enum'?

      If this is an SAP system, you might want to open a customer message that somebody from the MaxDB team can logon to your system and check what exactly is messed up and how to fix it...
