    I found exactly the same error last night. It seems DB instance didn't install successfully. I solved this problem by removing DB instance and installed it again.

    To uninstall DB instance, simple drop db as follow.

    dbmcli -d NSP -u control,control db_offline

    dbmcli -d NSP -u control,control db_drop

    After the second installation, it works perfectly.

    If you can log onto your system, use transaction

    SLICENSE

    It worked for me (I got all the same db errors as well).

    Whatever you do, don't enter ANYTHING in the System Number field.

    Have you installed other instance on this machine? Would you please give us your machine and OS specification?

    I got the same error on both cmdline and slicense and I solved by drop the db instance and reinstall it again. It seems some tables were missing.

    I have the same problems... And I tried hard to follow your explanations but I did not manage to get it all sorted... Especially the hint "finally resolved it..." ..."because some tables where missing" didn't help me too much... 😉

    Can you help please?

    The problem:

    I would like to write some programs but I get the error I need a developer id. Therefore I read all the topics about getting a license and the developer key and got the email containing the following:

    "Your Hardware key : P1297367619

    Your License Key : TZRNG1J1FOLSOZEZTZ8J8TOP

    License Expiration date: 20060102

    SID : NSP

    Installation-Nr. : DEMOSYSTEM"

    I set it all in the SLICENSE and I got the following error:

    "Error from database layer"

    With some retries I got also the error

    "Invalid license key"

    I am stuck. What do I need to check, do ?

    I am a SAP newbie so please give me directions... 😉

    cheers
