MaxDB Upgrade 7.8->7.9 Problem

Hello,

I would like to upgrade MaxDB starting_release=7.8.2 Build  038-121-249-252 /

target_release=7.9.08.08 on  SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64).

I took -supposingly appropriate-downloadobject 51046733_8 (SAP MaxDB 7.9 Backwards - SP8 Build 08 MAXDB_LINUX_X86_64) from SAP Marketplace, transfered it as root  to the server, unzipped and issued:

./SDBUPD -d SOS -u control,control.

Output says ok (see hereafter) but no connect to the database is possible.

I am working on this for several days and tried a lot. Nothing works by now.

Does anybody know whats wrong ?

Hi Marco,

Refer to link http://scn.sap.com/thread/1689212

Be careful they say in the thread if incorrectly launched it will drop all data.

Kind Regards,
