Is an upgrade from SAP 6.20 to 6.40 necessary when an SAPDBA error message suggests it?

I am working with an R/3 system running SAP 6.40 kernel that is giving me an error message when I am running SAPDBA: Instance info not set for instance DH3 - SAPDBA version is 6.20. Is it required that I upgrade SAPDBA to 6.40 to overcome this error? Expert Bert Vanstechelman responds.

I am working with an R/3 system running SAP 6.40 kernel that is giving me an error message when I am running SAPDBA:

Is it required that I upgrade SAPDBA to 6.40 to overcome this error?
SAPDBA has been replaced by brtools with kernel 6.40. You can still use SAPDBA 6.20 together with Oracle 9 and SAP Web AS 6.40. However, it is strongly recommended to only use brtools.

The error you're describing occurred in old versions of SAPDBA. Install the latest SAPDBA version available. You...

will have to go look for it in the Software Archives as SAPDBA is no longer supported (http://service.sap.com/swdc > Support Packages and Patches > Archive for Support Packages and Patches).

Also, verify your environment settings. Environment variables for the administration users should be set as described in oss notes 602843 (Unix) and 556232 (Windows)
