Install the SAP MaxDB software on all servers in the cluster using identical parameters/settings. Refer to the SAP MaxDB Installation Guide for details. The following are additional recommendations to ensure that LifeKeeper will work with SAP MaxDB:

  • A non-root system user (OS User) must exist on all servers as follows:
    • This OS User should be designated as the owner of the SAP MaxDB software installation and subdirectories or have adequate permissions on the software installation path and subdirectories as required to manage a database instance.

    • This OS User must have authority to use the DBMCLI and x_server utilities. The OS User must be able to start and stop the vserver using the x_server commands.

    • The OS User name should contain alpha-numeric characters only.

    • The User ID and Group ID of this OS User must be identical on all servers.
  • The SAP MaxDB client software packages must be installed. These packages must include the SAP MaxDB DBMCLI client utility, and the SAP MaxDB x_server utility.
  • Each LifeKeeper server containing an SAP MaxDB resource hierarchy must have identical service entries in the /etc/services file for the SAP MaxDB instance.
