Error while create or mount a repository in MDM

Hi,

after installing SAP MDM 5.5 SP06 and SAP MaxDB 7.6.00.35 on the same hardware (Laptop with Windows NT Client) I started MDM Console, mounted the MDM Server and then started the MDM Server (green arrow).

When I try to add a repository (unarchiving an existing or creating a new one) I enter the data (DBMS eerver, User-ID and password) and then I always get the same error message:

"Error Getting DBMS Settings" --> "Error initializing database engine".

Any ideas where the problem is?

thanks and regards

Erich

    Hi Jochen,

    Click on the Logs, server section there you will get the exact reason for the error. As per my knowledge MDM needs higher version of MaxDB than 7.6 and you will get the same error in Logs.

    You may need to use another database server than MaxDB.

    Kindly update us...

    Hi Jochen,

    You will need to Install Max DB 7.7

    Please take a look at the below threads.

    mdm-55-sp5-and-maxdb

    They should definitely help.

    Hope this helps.

    it was fairly simple for me with a free MS SQL express edition, try using that.

    You need to play around with the DNS name ( the server name ) you give in the data base credentials.

    Hi,

    1. Use M[10] Oracle Database.

    2. Check the Data base connectivity with respect to MDM Server.

    3. Stop and restart MDM Listener services that is for MDM Connectivity.

    Hope it helps.
