Error during the installation of Database instance

Hi All,

I am installing database instance on a seperate database server for Netweaver 7.0 EHP 2 , the databse servers has several drives . For NW 7.0 installation 2 drives are reserved

Drive N : 200 GB

Drive O : 200 GB

During DB Instance installation after selecting the Datafiles ( Ex : 4 databfiles ) in the next screen SAPinst throws error

" The Drive N : does not exist or is unaccessible for MS Sql Server " however I can continue installation if I select any other drive except N & O . Kindly suggest what might be the reason for the error.

    Hello!

    Can you access the drives N and O through Windows Explorer?

    And can you create/delete a test folder at them? With all involved users (e.g., "sidadm", "SAPServiceSID", and the user you're using to install the system)?

    Regards,

    Isaias
