How to check the isolated installation, how to find out which parts are installed and whether they are isolated?
Kindly assist here.
Thanks in advance.
a) If xinstinfo -V delivers a 7.8 version >= 7.8.02.29 or 7.9 >= 7.9.08.02 the installation paths can be identified by simply executing the tool XINSTINFOIt will deliver the following output:
GlobalProgramsPathGlobalDataPathPrivateDataPathIf there is a difference between GlobalDataPath and PrivateDataPath this is an indication for an isolated installation.
b) You can also check the installation with Database Manager CLI (DBMCLI):
dbmcli inst_enumOK7.8.02.33 /sapdb/clients/MOV7.8.02.33 /sapdb/MOV/dbdbmcli -U c dbm_getpathOKClientProgPath=/sapdb/MOV/dbInstallationPath=/sapdb/MOV/dbGlobalProgPath=/sapdb/programsDataPath=/sapdb/MOV/dataGlobalDataPath=/sapdb/dataIf there is a difference between DataPath and GlobalDataPath this is an indication for an isolated installation.
c) List the installed SAP MaxDB/liveCache components by executing the following command from the administration command prompt:
<IndepPrograms>\pgm\dbmcli inst_enum(The value for the <IndepPrograms> can be found in the registry: \\HKLM\Software\SAP\SAP DBTech->IndepPrograms )
For the database server installation there should exist an own data path:
<IndepPrograms>\bin\sdbconfig -I -s <ServerInstRootPath> DataPath<ServerInstRootPath> can be found in the output line of the inst_enum command.Example: On the system, where the server software (for database MOV) and client software (CL_MOV) are installed, inst_enum returns following lines:C:\>c:\sapdb\programs\pgm\dbmcli inst_enumOK7.9.07.14 C:\sapdb\MOV\db7.9.07.14 C:\sapdb\clients\MOV
The SDBCONFIG for the server software will return:
C:> c:\sapdb\programs\bin\sdbconfig -I -s C:\sapdb\MOV\db DataPath C:\sapdb\MOV\data
This means, that the server software with the installation root C:\sapdb\MOV\db is isolated and has its own private data path located in the C:\sapdb\MOV\data directory. The SDBCONFIG call will return no result if the software is not isolated.
