Upgrade miniWAS to 7.5/7.6

Hello,

is there anything preventing me from upgrading my 7.3.28 SAPDB (miniWAS 6.20) straight to MAXDB 7.5 or 7.6, instead of going via SAPDB 7.4?

    Hello,

    no, you can upgrade directly to MaxDB 7.5

    The minimum version is 7.3.0 Build 25

    More information about the upgrade can be found here:

    http://service.sap.com/instguides -> Installation & Upgrade Guides -> Other Documentation -> Database Upgrades -> MySQL MaxDB

    Please read carefully before you start.

    MaxDB 7.6 is not yet released.

    Best regards, Stefan

    • Hi,

      shortly after starting SDBUPD, it terminates with error -909 "mirrored devspaces impossible". It further seems I cannot change the related parameter (mirrored devspaces - Y/N) in the DB Manager; it's "read-only". The termination of SDBUPD happens after a call to x_diag.exe.

      Now what? I've searched the mySQL forums but no solution to this...

    Hello,

    the error occurs while sdbupd runs this command:

    dbmcli -d <DB> -u control,control -uUTL control,control db_restartinfo

    The error should also occur when you run this command on the command line.

    The error can happen when once the database ran in LOGMODE Dual and one of the Logvolumes were set to bad without reintegrating it. Then when the logmode is set to single the entry for the bad logvolume is not set back. This is why the error occurs.

    To get rid this you can set logmode back to dual with DBMGUI -> Configuration -> Log settings.

    Then the logdevspace automatically gets reintegrated.

    Then start sdbupd again.

    When the database becomes WARM you have to run a new backup in cold mode before you can restart sdbupd.

    Best regards, Stefan
