Permission denied error while CBS is building DCs


from time to time we get an permission denied error when activating changes. The CBS server tries to check out files into the temporary build folders at the server and cannot do that for one file (see following error message).

As already said this happens only sometimes and only for single files.

Does anyone have the same experience and/or a suggestion how to solve this problem?

When deleting the folder and activating again the error has gone.

    Hi Helmut,

    Same here. We have been experiencing thsi problem for quite some time now. All the DC's are marked as dirty and then CBS keeps trying to rebuild.

    After many attempts it is successful and then all the DC's are built.

    Also in between suddenly we also get the error "DTR connectivity problem".

    Hope this problem has some solution.

    • Hi Sidharth,

      good to hear that we are not the only company with this problem.

      We also do have this problem since months, from SP9 to SP11.

      First we thought that it would have been a CBS configuration or an OS problem but this cannot be the reason because as you already mentioned it works after serveral attempts. We also analysed the temporary CBS folders and noticed that only one file (the one that causes the error) does have other attributes than the others.

      That sounds very strange and I hope that someone from SAP will read this task.

      At the moment we are collecting all the problems and errors that appear with the JDI and the Netweaver Developeer Studio to present SAP this list in bulk. We cannot write an OSS note for every error we discover as suggested by SAP.

      Stability mainly of the NWDS plugins is the biggest problem we have at the moment. Did you make the same experience?
