Maxdb error -24875


I try to install a second instance on the same database server with MAXDB Database Manager 7.6 - on Windows System.

But i cannot install the instance because i reach the following error:

"-24875 The operating system user is not a member of the database administrators group."

I´m logging on server with SIDadm and on connect to database with user Superdba (SYSDBA), but when i push next button in screen Instance Type (OLTP) i find this error.

I understand the real meaning of the message but i don´t know how to solve it rapidly.

Can someone me help? What can i do?

Thank you.

Best Regards.

you simply shutdown the existing SAP Instance(It will relese lot of resources needed for new installation). Then log in as Administrator and start installing sap with new SID., provide all the required details .
