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.

Hello All,

I tried many ways to make this installation work. NW 7.1 on SQL 2008 R2.

By certain workarounds and manual steps, i could complete installation. However, i got various warning/wrong data in db02, st04 and spam etc.

I had to uninstall this and reinstall again on SQL 2005.

(I had also raised SAP message. Even after all pursuit, SAP suggested the same path).
