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?
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)
