    Hi Domnic,

    It seems from the logs that there is a problem in moving the SAP system directories possibly from the old SID name to new name

    Does the user that you are using for installation (devadm ?) have sufficient authorizations to move (cut/paste ?)

    • Hi Domnic,

      First thing Do not use the <sapsid>adm user for the installation of the SAP system.

      and as per the log it is trying to move logs from D:/usr/sap/DEV to D:/usr/sap/TST

      and i see access denied error lib=java

      Access is denied.

      0 dir(s) moved.

      so please check you have read/write permissions on D: drive and you have enough free space available.

      also check below steps

      • Check if service WmiPrvSe.exe is running.
      • If service WmiPrvSe.exe is running, apply SAP Note 1459119.

    Hello Domnic,

    There could be processes locking the filesystem.

    Did installation stop all services, processes?

    Did you check processes?
