The file is for MaxDB and is irrelevant here if the database is Sybase ASE. The file for ASE should be To understand why the import phase is failing, you should look into the trace files available under the /tmp/sapinst_instdir directory.

Hi Reagan,

Thanks for that. ldd looks okay. I am still trying to find anything to help.

This is the R3load.exe.log

This is the sapinst.log

sapinst_dev.log seems to give similar info.

see attached.sapinst-dev.txt

>>testDatabaseConnection was executed with status ERROR and testDatabaseConnection is not OK<<

The connection to the database fails. Check if the database is running. It could also be that the R3load fails to connect to the database because of the environment variables. You should check other logs present in the installation directory.
