EHP8 upgrade error at SUM phase PREP_INPUT_CHECK/READDATA_EXP on E-Recruiting System


We're upgrading SAP E-Recruiting (standalone) on Netweaver 7.4 to EHP8/Netweaver 7.5 and unfortunately running into the issue at the SUM (1.0 SP16 PL12) phase PREP_INPUT_CHECK/READDATA_EXP.

We put all the export DVDs of ERP and NetWeaver under EHP8 following the SAP Note but can't get through.

2292146 - Correct DVD Numbers for SAP ERP 6.0 EHP8 Upgrade Export, SUM Error : DVD "BS2016_SP01_MID" Required

2268605 - Correct DVD Numbers for Netweaver 7.5 Upgrade Export, SUM Error : DVD "NW750_MID" Required

The source system version is as below:

SAP_BASIS 740 0007 SAP_ABA 740 0007 SAP_GWFND 740 0008 SAP_UI 740 0009 PI_BASIS 740 0007 ST-PI 740 0002 SAP_BW 740 0007 MDG_FND 747 0005 SAP_BS_FND 747 0005 WEBCUIF 747 0005 ERECRUIT 617 0005 ST-A/PI 01R_731 0002

I found people have similar problems with the SEM-BW (. When we tried to follow the same approach of SEM-BW from the SAP guide Special Cases in Installation and Update | SCN,it didn't work because I guess SAP hasn't created additional product versions for ERECRUITING like SEM-BW in the SAP software catalog. We can't simply get rid of the "SAP ERP 6.0" in LMDB without causing the verification error in the maintenance planner because it can't recognize the ERECRUIT any more. So we had to add it back before we can generate the STACK.XML. Then everything just get back to the beginning where the problem happens. We raised an ticket (162093/2016) and SAP Support gave a few suggestions which can't resolve it yet.

I wonder if someone has experienced this situation and could share any workaround or solution.
