Hello All,

We are doing a distributed installation of EP 7.0 Including EHP1 on RedHat Linux 5.4 with Oracle.

SCS and CI are on the Same Server and DB is on a different Server.

Currently our installation is struck in the installation of Central Instance. The database and SCS went off weel.

Now, SAP has recommeded to change the Java and try again. Could you please confirm the following:

1) As per the steps mentioned on oss note 718901 to change the javahome for configtool, sdm and visual admin. Which is the configuration file that we need to change on unix system? is it configtool.bat?

2) Also, Does changing the JAVA_HOME for CI impact the SCS which was installed earlier with a different Java release. Both SCS and CI are on the same server. Anything to be done to change the JAVA_HOME for SCS?

Hello Antapreet,

Regarding your first question, if you set the JAVA_HOME variable, then the and

files should work. For the configtool, the configtool.bat usually has reference to the Java_Home parameter, as do the RemoteGui.bat for sdm and go.bat for VA. Please note that sometimes you need to re-start on machine level for the environment variable to work.

As for the second question, the java instance does not use that JAVA_HOME parameter,

just the ones in the instance profiles.

One more thing, if you do need to edit the, you can use the

vi editor.
