MaxDB Livecache Rename error

Hi All,

I have been renaming my maxBD livecache manually as per the SAP note 1427931 - Renaming an SAP MaxDB/liveCache database as of 7.8.

System details: SCM Live cache 7.9.07 (SP9) on MaxDB 7.9.07(SP9).

Initially had to change the contents of /etc/opt/sdb file as the path specified there does not exist.

Original content:

# cat sdb

[Globals]

IndepPrograms=/sapdb/programs

IndepData=/sapdb/data

SdbOwner=sdb

SdbGroup=sdba

Changed content:

# cat sdb

[Globals]

IndepPrograms=/db2/TLE/sapdb/programs

IndepData=/db2/TLE/sapdb/data

SdbOwner=sdb

SdbGroup=sdba

However during Register the database installation and the X server i am encountering the below issue:

# cd /db2/TLE/sapdb/programs/bin

# ./sdbreg -r -d TLE -path /db2/TLE/sapdb/TLE/db -sw_kernel -

start_listener
