Error installing EP 6.0 on WAS 6.40


we are currently try to install a Portal Platform 6.0 on a WAS 6.40 JAVA Engine.

The requirement for installing the portal is the SP4 of WAS. Unfortunately the J2EE Engine seems to be in 6.30 state AFTER patching it with SP4.

So we tried the newest SP (SP9).

After that, the J2EE Engine is in state 6.40 and we thought we are ready to install EP 6.0 now.

But after starting sapinst it tells us:

"SAPInst could not find any SAP J2EE instances that match the Portal Platform requirements. The installation stops. Install the SAP J2EE 6.40 according to the Portal PAM requirements, and run the portal installation again"

The Instance was found (look at log)!

Basic Configuration:

Windows 2000 Server

WAS Java SP3 on MaxDB 7.5x

Default Central J2EE Engine

Of course, we have read several guides and all(think so) notes.

Are there any comments or solutions?

    My understanding is that EP is currently not installable on a MaxDB J2EE Engine. On Oracle it works fine.

    Have a look at the PAM

    Seems like it is featured with the NW04 service release in December
