Once you have installed the SAP DB / MaxDB software, created your database and created the User_Key, you are ready to install the SPS Core software and any required patches followed by the SAP DB / Max DB Recovery Kit. Also, if you plan to use SAP DB / MaxDB with raw devices, you must install the SPS Raw I/O Recovery Kit from the SPS Installation Image file. See the Appendix for requirements and instructions on setting up raw devices.

Refer to the SPS for Linux Installation Guide for details on installing the SPS packages.
