Automating Database Installation in SP4

There's a known issue where the database does not install correctly from the mxmc-install batch file. There seems to be a problem with the vbscripts that transports the passwords the script to the database server.

I've taken the liberty here of editing a copy of mxmc-install that bypasses the vbscripts that move the passwords from the script to the database.

@echo off

SET MC_HOST=localhost
set MC_SAPWD= @dmin123
set PWDOPER= p@55word
set PWDADMIN= p@55word
set PWDUSER= p@55word
set PWDRT= p@55word

Nothing too complicated, just specifying the Prefix (by default MXMC) and then the passwords for SQL Server, MXMC_OPER, MXMC_ADMIN, MXMC_USER, MXMC_RT and MXMC_PROV.

Hope this helps you when working with NetWeaver IDM 7.1 Service Pack 4.
