On one node of the cluster, install the SAP DB software.
Perform a standard configuration of SAP DB.
Create a plain text file that contains information about the database user who administers the SAP DB database instance.
For information about the content of this file, see the SAP DB documentation. For the name of the server on which the database is running, specify the logical hostname for the SAP DB resource that you specified in Configuration Planning Questions.
For an example of the content of this file, see Example 1–4.
Generate the .XUSER.62 file from the plain text file that you created in Step a.
Use the SAP DB command xuser for this purpose.
# xuser -b user-info-file
Specifies the plain text file from which you are generating the .XUSER.62 file
# tar cfB - /usr/spool/sql | rsh destination tar xfB -
Specifies the node to which you are copying the /usr/spool/sql directory and its contents
The following example shows a plain text file that contains information about a database user who administers an SAP DB instance.
DEFAULT dbm dbm TST srvr-1 blank line blank line -1 -1 blank line
This example specifies the following information about a database user who administers an SAP DB instance:
The user key that is used to address this combination of XUSER data is named DEFAULT.
