Short dumps during SP installation

Hello guys!

Just wanted to ask a quick question. Is it normal, that during SP installation I'm getting maaaany short dumps? Usually it happens during IMPORT_PROPER phase.

Currently I'm updating one of my systems and in the meantime I checked ST22 - i got 1300 shortdumps (most of them are SYNTAX_ERROR.

Is it often case? I never suffered due to those errors - after update system is working fine.

Best regards

Anatoly

    Hi Anatoly,

    Did you inform the users and functional team that system will be down for SP upgrade? if the users log in to system SP upgrade and perform some tasks then you will be receiving short dumps like syntax errors . did you check if the dump is due to standard program or any customized programs. Please check the transaction and user causing these dumps. mostly these dumps are caused due to user action when SP upgrade is in progress.

    Thanks,
    Ranjith

    Hi Anatoly,

    Hi Anatoly,

    Sometimes you get strange errors during update after update they should be resolved

    I would suggest looking at the program names in your short dumps i.e. example of short dump text would be helpful.

    Once you have program name from the short dump do a full extended program check on the progrem

    SE38-> Enter program name

    Then click on Program -> Check -> Extend Program check and execute

    But for more accurate assistance please display short dump information here and also run transaction SICK.

    Kind Regards.

    Johan

    Hi!

    This is from today update:

    Category               Internal Kernel Error

    Runtime Errors         DDIC_TYPE_INCONSISTENCY

    Application Component  BC-ABA-LA

    Date and Time          17.05.2013 21:27:55

    What happened?
        Error in the SAP kernel.

        The current ABAP "SAPLBTCH" program had to be terminated because the
        ABAP processor detected an internal system error.

    Error analysis
        There is an internal system error.
        eliminated with ABAP/4.

        There is an inconsisteny for the DDIC structure "FAVSELS", the corresponding
        Dictionary runtime object (NAMETAB) is incorrect.

        The number of components of the structure (NAMETAB component "fldcnt")
        is specified as 46. If all the substructures are resolved and the
        actual total number of components is calculated recursively, a different
        value is returned.

    I imported lates Kernel 7.21 + R3trans + TP.

    System is ERP EHP5.

    Best regards

    A.

      Hi,

      Short dump "DDIC_TYPE_INCONSISTENCY" usually occurs when a Dictionary
      object, referenced by a program, is inconsistent. This can be caused by
      a number of reasons, however, in the majority of cases, it is due to a
      change being made to the dictionary object due to transports or upgrade
      and there were errors during the activation.

      Have you checked the status of these objects? Please try to reactivate
      the structures using transaction SE11.

      We recommend that you review the notes below for additional information:
      595069 - Recursive check of inconsistent DDIC runtime objects
      1167784 - Runtime error DDIC_TYPE_INCONSISTENCY

      Regards,

      Anand.
