SUM error in phase SHADOW_IMPORT_INC

Hi All,

I am updating SAP erp 6 from ehp 4 to ehp 6 using SUM 1.0 SP10. I am getting below error in phase shadow_import_inc. Although a lot of people are getting error in this phase, however i could not find anyone having the same error as the one im getting. Also i am not able to find any relevant notes.

I tried using the latest TP and R3trans but the error remains. Can anyone please help? let me know if you need more details. Thanks!

The system that im running is Windows server 2008 and MSSQL 2008.

ERROR:
Detected the following errors:

    Hi All,

    Finally SAP have replied.

    First, It is true that I am using R3trans from April 2014 onwards in the SUM folder. My start system is using kernel 721 ext as of December 2013. But in SUM 1.0 SP 10, it explicitly ask for an updated R3trans in one of the beginning phase.

    Now that I am restarting the whole update with SUM 1 SP 9, it didnt ask for an updated R3trans. Lets hope that this will work.

    Dear Customer,
    On public holidays only VH's will be taken care.
    And regarding the issue there are many other customers who are facing
    the same issue.
    It seems a bug with the last R3trans version. What version are you
    using?

    If it is from April/2014 onwards, please replace it with an older
    version, then repeat the phase.
    Replace only R3trans, not tp or any other kernel file.
    Hope this information helps!!
    Kindly let us know if you have any issues further.
    Thank you.
    Kind Regards,
    Mahalakshmi S

      Hi Igor Chang,

      Your solution worked for me as well.

      The error was at the MAIN_TRANSEXEC/TABIM_TRANS PHASE while using SUM tool 10 PL3.I used the latest kernel version 7.21_EXT NUC with latest Tp and R3trans.

      ErrorLog:

      4 ETW000 define import portion 016282 - 017244 (size = 152995712)

      4 ETW000 define import portion 017245 - 018806 (size = 153518985)

      4 ETW000 define import portion 018807 - 999999 (size = 145622588)

      4 ETW690 COMMIT "13624" "14014"

      4 ETW000 23 13.054282

      1AETW000 SQL error 24374 occured: ORA-24374: define not done before fetch or execute and fetch

      2EETW000 Please contact the SAP support.

      Solution :

      The solution was to go copy the R3trans and TP, one level below the latest level and the PHASE continued.

    Hi,

    If possible for you try to use SUM 1.0 SP09 instead of SP10 as of some issues with this SP.

    • Dear Roc,

      You had to go with old installation and it is strange that you don't get reply from SAP AG while you had created ticket with high priority. Anyways Please share the the reply of SAP AG.

    Hi Roc,

    Before use of SUM1.0 SP09 better to take backup for SUM 1.0 SP10 for SAP support reference.

    Regards,

    Gaurav

    This seems to be issue with the R3trans. Please update the R3trans to a lower version.
    Please note that in the phase the R3trans which is being used is from the the directory
    ../SUM/abap/exe/ , so you need to update the R3trans in this directory.

      I replaced the R3trans.exe in the good folder.

      It's still running now. I keep you in touch.

      Thaks a lot Roc Kee Ho and Gaurav Kumar Pandey ;-)

    Hi

    The error is still there with SUM 1.0 SP 10 patch 5 (09.05.2014).

    On an Aix/Oracle system SUM asks to upgrade to the latest R3trans version (currently SP 229 - 29.04.2014) ... but the [MAIN_SHDIMP/SUBMOD_SHDIMP/SHADOW_IMPORT_INC ] phase can only be processed using R3trans 7.21 SP 201.

    Hopefully SCN was there and I did not need to search too much 😎

    BYTW I had the same bad surprise with SAP support on a message

    On public holidays only VH's will be taken care.

    I thought SAP support was supposed to be worldwide, and I get the same answer but for Chinese new year !


    Regards

    • Hello all,

      same error here:

      Error in phase  SHADOW_IMPORT_INC with R3trans Version 721 Ext UC v229

      I have replaced only R3trans with Version 212 (because no new Version is available on marketplace)  and the phase continued and hoepfully will finish without errors

      SUM version: 1.0.10.4

      Regards

      Michael

    Hello all,

    same procedure here. The right answer helped me out.

    I had troubles with R3trans version with compile time 4th of may (R3trans 741UC, 33) - exactly the same error message as initially.

    After finding this thread I was searching in SAP portal (SWDC) and SAP seems to have reverted the newer R3trans version with a bit older release 28 (at least for my kernel branch), compile time 31th of march.

    This version R3trans 741_UC, v28 is actually working (within SUM 1.0 SP10.5) and the error seems to be eleminated.

    Thank you for sharing this,

    best regards,

    Ingo
