We are installing the DB for MWM 2.0.1 on AIX. We downloaded the V2141-01_Updates in the Database file from eDelivery. This file is unzipped to create another zip file called that is unzipped to create folder MWM-V2.0.1-Database. Climbing the directory tree to MWM-V2.0.1-Database\MWM\DatabaseCreation\Unix, there is an install.tar file. This is untarred to create an install directory which contains the cdxdba.plx script to create the DB and the exp_demo.dmp file used to import DEMO data. There is also an 11g folder created when the install.tar file is extracted that contains the following files used in the DB creation:


The problem is that there are two files missing that cdxdba is requiring to build the DB. They are script.lst and init.ora.

These files are present in the MWM-V2.0.1-Database\MWM\DatabaseCreation\Windows directory but not the Unix directory.

Since the cdxdba script is looking for these files, it fails stating they do not exist. We copied the two missing files from the Windows directory but are not sure if they are the same the Unix needs. The DB build appears to be successful but we received many errors during the DEMO data import.
