Livecache 7.5 installation

Hi All

We are planning to install a new Livecache 7.5 on AIX 5.1 server but we already have another SAPDB version 7.3.0 installed on same machine (It servs an XI installation). Our doubt is :

1. During the installation fase (for Livecache), our indep programs will be upgraded or do we need to do it before?

2. Is there any problem installing and working with this two softwares on same host?

Many Thanks

Daniela Godoi

    Hello Daniela,

    you should be able to run both on the same machine. Please make sure both instances are correctly configured and sized, so that you don't run into resource problems.

    To answer your questions:

    1. You have to do it before. In case you try to install a new liveCache/MaxDB 7.5 instance on a machine which already has a liveCache/SAP DB instance <= 7.4, then you need to upgrade the Client Installation first.

    In other words: install the 7.5 client on your machine first (you can use sdbinst using the new 7.5 liveCache software to do that, as described in OSS note 649814).

    !!! IMPORTANT:

    Please be aware that with liveCache 7.5 there's a new Unix security concept. During the above client installation, you will be asked for a user & group, to whom the database will belong. The defaults are 'sdb' (user) and 'sdba' (group). If you have no objection against these, I suggest you take the defaults.

    -> The user of the other instances (7.3) will then be placed in the 'sdba' group.

    After installing the new 7.5 client software, you should be able to follow your 7.5 liveCache installation guide to install the complete liveCache 7.5 software.

    2. As said in the beginning, there should be no problems, <i>if</i> everything is handled correctly.

    Should you experience any problems at all, I'll probably ask you to open a OSS/CSS message on queue BC-DB-LVC.

    Kind regards,
