    installation run in two phases one is input phase where you give all the inputs and in other phase is execution phase where it uses file called keydb.xml which got populated during input phase,

    all user sidadm userid and passwords location of dump everthing is stored in inthis file

    Hi Haroon,

    sapinst toll used for installation of sap products.sapinst server where the sap will be installaed and sapinst gui where the gui will be running for control and monitor the installation.You can get information how to run sapinst for local and remote installation from the installation guide.In the background r3load will do the main installation.

    Regarding password i think it will be stored in etc/passwd directory in unix.

    Regards

    Ashok

    Hi

    Haroon

    Sapinst is built in java environment, that is why u install java intially,

    it looks for the components selected, i,e the inputs given by you at the input phase, these are stored in the file called keydb.xml.

    Based upon that it creates the environment i,e the users and where to be installed, and mainly the database is completely installed by the r3load.

    Regards
