,ERR_SHMNOTAVAILABLE when updating to 7_7_06_15



I am installing an APO landscape, this is the 5th install that has been carried out and the first where I am having issues updating the liveCache version.

The package I am using is lca700009_livecache-aix5-64bit-ppc-7_7_06_15, command ./SDPUPD -d LCV -u control,*********

It occurs at the following point in the update program process:

checking filesystem "/sapdb"... free disk space ok

starting installation phase of package Database Kernel 64 bit


unregister Database Kernel

and the resulting error message is:

checking unpacked archive... ok

error occured while executing /sapdb/programs/bin/dbmcli -R /sapdb/LCV/db inst_reg

/sapdb/programs/bin/dbmcli -R /sapdb/LCV/db inst_reg: ERR

SAP liveCache instance update exited abnormally at We, May 05, 2010 at 11:45:47

The host is newly installed and has been built exactly the same as all other hosts that have preceeded this one.

I have followed the instructions in thread Error after Install SAP NetWeaver 7.01 ABAP Trial Version, but they have not worked.

Please advise, I have already tried re-installing the whole system from scratch.
