Background documentationErrors in the Execution of the SDBINST Program Locate this document in the navigation structure


If an error occurs when you execute the SDBINST program, the program terminates with a message describing the cause of the error.

Frequent Causes of Errors:
  • Files of the software you want to update are still being used.

    • Administration sessions are still running, which means that Database Manager is still active.

    • Applications that use the runtime or scripting interfaces of the database system are still running.

  • There is not enough disk space for the new software.

  • You have attempted to update a 64 bit database kernel with software for a 32 bit kernel. This is not possible.

  • You have ignored the dependencies between the software components while updating the software. These dependencies concern the versions of the components or the order in which they need to be installed.


Remove the cause of the error and execute the program again.
