Upgrade Solman 7.01 to 7.1 -> Errors in ABAP and JAVA during downtime

Hello,

We want to upgrade our solution manager 7.0 EHP1 to 7.1 but during the SUM process we are having some issues in the DOWNTIME section for both ABAP and JAVA.

I would like to point out that the process is upgrading BI_CONT 706 to 707.I already checked the note and the "fix" that it provides for this kinds of errors was already in place.

Attached to this message are the log files of both java and abap errors and one of the ...SOLMANX... logs related to tabimupg.elg

ABAP Errors:

Checks after phase MAIN_NEWBAS/TABIM_UPG were negative!

Last error code set: Detected 122 errors summarized in 'TABIMUPG.ELG'<br/> Calling 'C:\usr\sap\DSM\DVEBMGS02\exe/tp' failed with return code 8, check D:\SUM\abap\log\SAPup.ECO for details

My opinion on the JAVA ERROR


I noticed that it tries to access the "sapjvm_5" in the kernel folder but there is no sapjvm_5 there. Just sapjvm_4. In another attempt i downloaded the sapjvm_5 manually and placed there. The process continue but after that it tried to send a shutdown command to SDM on port 50018 and it failed. Wasn't SUM supposed to migrate to sapjvm_5 on its own? The MOPZ i produced to this dual stack solman didnt bring any jvm upgrade...

    Hi Borges

    1. Kindly refer the SAP Note 1639668 - Error message in SUM after resetting the update
    process
    for "The following problem has occurred during step execution:java.lang.NullPointerException: while trying to invoke the method"

    2. Kindly check your system resources is this any low?

    Regards

    To solve the JAVA error i just created a new folder in the kernel directory with the name "sapjvm_5" and copied the content of sapjvm_4 into it.

    Did the job 😊

    I wonder if the references to sapjvm_5 were about the SUM tool's own JVM and not the one for the final SolMan system? My SolMan 7.1 sp8 system is using sapjvm_4, but SUM uses its own JVM separately (though I don't think it's sapjvm_5 either).

    Hello,

    I am having the exact same situation and did not find a solution to this problem yet, even though I have applied SAP Notes 1678780, 1722606.

    Have you succeded with the upgrade, and if yes, how did you manage to solve the errors from your message ?

    Thank you in advance,

    Paul

    • Hello Paolo,

      This is indeed the solution to our problem. The "Allowfiles.SAR" attachment of OSS Note 1678780 was not complete - error 5 when extracting with SAPCAR and it unpacked only 301 files. SAP should update the OSS Note ASAP.

      However, I used my own workaround which is most likely the same as your solution. I have manually created 6 allow files needed for the upgrade to continue. I can now find those files in your attachment - which makes me very happy: ALEN71SR1SOLMANX1 ,2, 4 and ALDE71SR1SOLMANX1, 2, 4. Basically, the necessary allow files contained only 1 line:

      I 2EETW109 table "/POSDW/

      and as other files were identical, I realised that I am doing the right thing.

      Thank you for your help !

      Kind regards,

      Paul
