    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 XINSTINFO
    It will deliver the following output:

    GlobalProgramsPath
    GlobalDataPath
    PrivateDataPath
    If 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_enum
    OK
    7.8.02.33    /sapdb/clients/MOV
    7.8.02.33    /sapdb/MOV/db
    dbmcli -U c dbm_getpath
    OK
    ClientProgPath=/sapdb/MOV/db
    InstallationPath=/sapdb/MOV/db
    GlobalProgPath=/sapdb/programs
    DataPath=/sapdb/MOV/data
    GlobalDataPath=/sapdb/data
    If 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>pgmdbmcli inst_enum
    (The value for the <IndepPrograms> can be found in the registry: HKLMSoftwareSAPSAP DBTech->IndepPrograms )

    For the database server installation there should exist an own data path:

    <IndepPrograms>insdbconfig -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:sapdbprogramspgmdbmcli inst_enum
    OK
    7.9.07.14    C:sapdbMOVdb
    7.9.07.14    C:sapdbclientsMOV

    The SDBCONFIG for the server software will return:

    C:> c:sapdbprogramsinsdbconfig -I -s C:sapdbMOVdb DataPath C:sapdbMOVdata

    This means, that the server software with the installation root C:sapdbMOVdb is isolated and has its own private data path located in the C:sapdbMOVdata directory. The SDBCONFIG call will return no result if the software is not isolated.
