Installing anoter DB6 version on Same Server

Dear Forumers

I was tasked to install a CRM instance on our existing DEV system with ERP 6.0 and DB6 8.2, I now need to install DB 9.1 on this server.

1. Can this be done?

2. If it can, how do I go about it without getting the DEV instance of ERP 6.0 and its DB6 to stop functioning?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi All

    I am trying to install the CRM instance as 01 on DEV as in original question was confirmed I can but am faced with following:

    cat R3load.exe.log

    sapparam: sapargv( argc, argv) has not been called.

    sapparam(1c): No Profile used.

    sapparam: SAPSYSTEMNAME neither in Profile nor in Commandline

    /usr/sap/CRD/SYS/exe/run/R3load: START OF LOG: 20090224144553

    Hi Rob ,

    which product version do you want to install and is it Windows or Unix/Linux platform ?

    With current installations there should be no problem .

    see SAP Note

    1. yes

    2. use an instance specific installion path, such as /db2/db2<sid>/v91/... or anything similar 😉

    when you're migrating db2 from 8 to 9 and you have multiple sap systems/db2 systems on one server you'll need to install more than one db2 software at the same time (old and new) when migrating only one system at a time 😉

    Hi All

    Thank you very much, I have started, but are running into DB connection problems.

    It is by the way on HP_UX installing SAP CRM 2007 with DB2 9.1.

    Regards
