MDM 7.1 installation on AIX/Oracle


Hi all,

I'm trying to install MDM 7.1 on AIX6.1/Oracle 10g and I have several questions.

1. About Oracle client

According to installation guide, I need to install Oracle client on MDS(MDM server).

SAP note #819829 introduces Oracle instant client on UNIX, and according to it, the prerequisite is as follows:

- The SAP system runs with SAP Kernel 7.00 and above

Can I use Oracle instant client with MDM 7.1?

I think MDM is not based SAP kernel so I have no way to judge...

2. About creating database

Since sapinst does not create database of MDM, I need to create it manually.

In case of DB6, SAP offers sample scripts to create MDM database.

But for Oracle, there is no sample scripts.

Does anyone have infomation about that?

I created one database using DBCA, but I'm not sure what parameters I should choose..

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
