SUM Clean Module Password Required - Reset Java Upgrade

Hi we were upgrading EP Java and went to the Preprocessing phase where patches were applied to shadow instance. We decided we want a different version/set of patches and needed to recalculate stack file. We went ahead and cancelled the upgrade. We proceeded as follows:

1. SUM - Update - Reset Update. Message showed it was reset. Not sure if it "actually" worked. This was done according to SUM guide. Exited out of SUM with no errors.

2. Checked DB table - found schema present SAP<SID>SH - dropped schema with content

3. Checked main schema SAPSR3DB - 565 tables starting with SHD found . Dropped all these tables with cascade and purge.

4. Restored the /usr/sap/SID directory

5. Rebooted Server

6. SAP Starts up fine and everything works fine as before

7. Deleted shadow instance services from registry

8. No profiles found related to shadow instance

9. Deleted old SUM folder. Extracted fresh SUM and started

(Unfortunately in Java there is no option of RSUPGRES/RSUPGREV - neither is there a UVERS table - also there is no DDIC user which is being asked for when I do a SAPup prepare reset)

How do we clean up and do a reset for Java ? Ther's gotta be a place where SUM is reading old entries from. We really dont want to restore the DB but they may be the only solution it seems

Below is the message I get. I have opened a ticket with SAP and already checked OSS Note:

2011380 - Previous SUM not finished properly and asking for CLEAN

    Stop SUM.

    If there is a directory called oldSUM under /sapmnt/SID/global/security/data then remove or rename it.

    Restart SUM.
