SAPINST Problem - Urgent

Hi guys,

I runned sapinst and already installed the database.

After that I continued with sapinst.

As I had to go to a meeting, I exited sapinst with "exit".

I read everywhere, that this is ok and the process is continuing in backend.

But now i tried to reconnect to sapinst, and it failed.

I also check the processes, with (ps -ef | grep sapinst).

But no process found?

What should I do now?

Should I start the installer again and it will continue?

What was my mistake?

Thx for help

kindly kill any sapinst process if any is running. Go to the installation directory . You might find a directory with this convention sapinst_exe.xxxxxx.xxxx . Delete it . Then restart sapinst. Should work fine now . It will start from the point it was stopped.
