NW 7.1 Installation on SQL 2008 R2


I am facing problem in SAP NW 7.1 installation on Windows 2008 R2 and SQL 2008 R2.

Above combination is supported as per PAM.


1) See Prerequisites Checker Result as below.

I have ingnored this warning and go ahead with installation.

2) Now I am stuck at phase, create/Modify database schema

Log does not provide any clear error.

Please note that I have already followed below notes:

1) I have patched SAPINST as per note: Note 929929 - Latest SAPinst Patch

2) I have modified kerner as per Note 1480785 - Creating a Modified Windows Kernel DVD

3) Updated Microsft DLLS Note 684106 - Microsoft runtime DLLs

Also note that I have already installed SQL 2008 R2 on this server. I have other 3 SIDs running on this server with SQL 2008 R2 as database.

Let me know your view.

    we have the same problem and we found the following Note: 1076022


    4. SAP releases based on Netweaver 7.1


    d) Installing a 7.1 system on SQL Server 2008 (R2)

    You cannot use the Netweaver 7.1 installation package to install a new SAP system on SQL Server 2008 (R2). As a workaround, you need to install on SQL Server 2005, apply the required SAP_BASIS and SAP_BW support packages, apply a supported SAP kernel and then upgrade the database release to SQL Server 2008 (R2).

    that is really a miserable solution 😔

    Ignoring the warning should not have an adverse affect, but would recommend to solve the version issue incase the installation is for productive usage.

    With regards to error you get in create/modify database schema - please post what error SAPInst gives or check in the path C:\programs files\sapinst_instdir\..\..\.. you would see the sapinst.log and sapinst_dev.log. Check those for errors.

      Hi Jairo,

      I did not had to follow steps you had mentioned.

      As a workaround I manually created the logon by executing the following command on SQL Studio Managment:

      exec sp_addlogin N'nml', 'passwd', N'NML'

      This is how i got though earlier error.

      For current error, i have already applied latest kernel. Still the error.

      look at previously shared MSSLOG.log file.
