1. Note the group id for dba and oinstall as this will be needed for the backup machine.
  1. Change to the software directory and run the following:

./sapinst SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME={database connectivity ip address}

  1. Run SAPinst to install the Database Instance using the appropriate SAP Installation Guide.

Installation Notes

  • SIOS recommends removing the orarun package, if it is already installed, prior to installation of the Database Instance (see SAP Note 1257556).
  • The database installation option in the SAPinst window assumes that the database software is already installed, except for Oracle. For Oracle databases, SAPinst stops the installation and prompts you to install the database software.
  • The <DBSID> identifies the database instance. SAPinst prompts you for the <DBSID> when you are installing the database instance. The <DBSID> can be the same as the <SAPSID>.
  • If you install a database on a host other than the SAP Global host, you must mount global directories from the SAP Global host.
  • If you run into an issue where the Listener was started, kill it using the command

(ps –ef | grep lsnrctl)

  • To reset passwords for SAPR3 and SAPR3DB userids, use the command


After Database installation is complete, close the original dialog and continue with SAP installation, Installing Application Services.
