2. Installed oracle patch

3. Installed SAP Central Instance

4. D11 is SID .


1. Installed Oracle with Sapserver.cmd

2. Installed Oracle patch

3. Installing SAP Database Instance

Database schema - SAPD11

Pl. correct if I am wrong any where

I am getting the below error message at phase 31

" ERROR 2009-01-25 03:04:25

FRF-00007 Unable to open RFC connection.

ERROR 2009-01-25 03:04:25

FRF-00063 RFC logon failed with message: Failed:

    You made mistake in entering the DB SID.

    Distributed installation means single SAPsystem distributed in 2 systems. A SAP system will have only one SID, but as per you in central instance u had given D11 and DB system its D22.

    Its not possible at all, SID should be single. Other informations are correct.

    Hope it helps

    > 2. Installed oracle patch

    Just to add:

    I would install Oracle plus the necessary interim patches as of Note 938986 - Oracle Database 9.2: Patches for 9.2.0.

    If you install a new system I would rather go for Oracle 10 ( + Patches) since Oracle 9.2 is already out of maintenance.
