ECC5 to ECC6 (Windows MAXDB) - Prepare phase : SHDINST_DB_PREP Error

Hello All

In the mentioned phase I receive the below error:

"Upgrade phase "SHDINST_DB_PREP" aborted with severe errors"

As per the guide, I have changed the MAXUSERTASKS and MAXLOCKS.

Please see below extract from the SHDDBBRP.LOG:
