1904239 - SUM options to change parameters entered in INITPUT and INITSUBST phases


During system upgrade, EHP or SPS implementation via Software Update Manager (SUM), several system parameters are defined during PREPARE.

Quite often there is a need to change one or more parameters, due to errors, poor performance or misconfigured options.

Most common errors derived from incorrect parameters are as below.

  • DDIC/DB password (including shadow instance)
  • DVD mount paths
  • Number of parallel processes
  • SPDD/SPAU request
  • <sid>adm password

This article shows options to rectify such parameters during the procedure.

Please check the following SCN link for more information.
