4.6c on MS SQL 2000 Problem


Hello SAP Gurus,

I'm trying to install a database Instance (on a database cluster system).

I allready installed the central instance, the database, database software and the r3setup-tool.

The Installation failed about 3%

The log says:

"WARNING 2009-05-29 11:05:23 DBCOMMONDBENV_NT_MSS CmdNGo:0


[Shared Memory]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

[Shared Memory]ConnectionOpen (Connect()).

ERROR 2009-05-29 11:05:23 DBCOMMONDBENV_NT_MSS InstallationDo:0

Phase failed.

ERROR 2009-05-29 11:05:23 InstController Action:0

Step DBCOMMONDBENV_NT_MSS could not be performed.

ERROR 2009-05-29 11:05:23 Main 🤯

Installation failed.

ERROR 2009-05-29 11:05:23 Main 🤯

Installation aborted."

it seems that the sapsetup cannot connect to the existing SQL2000 Database- buts definitive not a problem with user/permission cause I tried the installation with an global/domain/local/dbcluster admin too

The SAP Notes talking about checking the services and permissions but that isn't a solution for my problem...
