Unable to find a LABEL.ASC during NW74 installation

Hello,

I'm getting the following error when I select the Kernal files in the SAPINT tool:

Here is the full error:

You entered: Z:\HD1\NW74\51047455_10_2\DATA_UNITS\K_741_U_WINDOWS_X86_64\ Unable to find a LABEL.ASC.. ( look for label SAP:AKK:74:KERNEL:*:WINDOWS_X86_64:*)

The LABEL.ASC exists in that folder.

Thanks,

F

    The problem is solved,

    For some reason the SAPINST doesn't accept the media file from a share drive... I had to create a new VM with sufficient disk space and copy the media files in C drive.

    All went green 😊

    Thanks,

    F

    Thank you all for the input,

    I tried all this but no chance, here is some additional details on how I m running the installation.

    I m hosting an VM (Win 8 Server R2) on a Mac, the media file was downloaded from Marketplace and placed them on a share drive for the VM.

    After running the Software Provisioning Manager 1.0 SP04 successfully, I pointed the wizard to the share drive (See the screenshots). Once I click next I get the error I mentioned in my early posting.

    What could be wrong in the process?

    Cheers

    Hello,

    It looks like that you have downloaded wrong DVD. Please check if it is looking for SL controller DVD.

    Thanks,

    Sunny

    Hi,

    Use below DVD: SAP Kernel 7.40 Windows X86 64 (51046232). This should solve your issue.

    Hi Fahim,

    I recommend you to follow SAP Note  1654937 - How to correctly build the SAP Netweaver Kernel Media

    This note will provide you step by step creation of Kernel DVD.

    Hope this will help you.

    Thanks,

    Gaurav

      Hello, Gauva--

      If you download the media files from Marketplace, you don't need to consider this note since the extract process will take care of the building the "build folder" properly.

      Cheers,

    Watch out this media is subject to export validation, thus you will need to open a message for validating it.

    Just a stupid loss of few hours 😠

    If you want to receive files that are in the "Export" section of the Download Basket, create a customer ticket at www.service.sap.com/message using the Export component XX-SER-SWFL-EXPORT.

    Hi Fahim,

    As you have downloaded the correct media for Unicode kernel.I suggest you to try as like below screenshot.

    Select the LABELIDX.ASC or LABEL.ASC file & select OK to proceed.

    At your end location path would be like as below :

    Z:\HD1\NW74\51047455_10_2\DATA_UNITS\K_741_U_WINDOWS_X86_64\LABELIDX.ASC

    or

    Z:\HD1\NW74\51047455_10_2\DATA_UNITS\K_741_U_WINDOWS_X86_64\LABEL.ASC

    Regards,

    Gaurav
