Error during the SUM starting (Registering SUM in SAP Host Agent)


I´m with big troubles with OS400... in fact I don´t have much experience in this platform and because of that I´m facing some problems/obstacles.

I´m doing a support package update activity in a SAP ERP 6.0 EHP5, and the goal is to update it to EHP7!

I´m reading the SAP upgrade guide and in the chapter 5. Running the Software Update Manager I see the following instructions:

1. To start the Software Update Manager, log on as user QSECOFR and enter the following:

call qp2term

./STARTUP confighostagent <SID>

So I did exactly that. I logged with user QSECOFR and I typed the command "call qp2term", then I tried to start the SUM tool with the following command:

./STARTUP confighostagent S03

... but it gave me the following error:

/QOpenSys/usr/bin/-sh: ./STARTUP: not found

I can´t understand why!

When I typed > pwd command, I see /home/QSECOFR

I also tried to perform the procedure from within the SUM directory, but the command CD doesn´t work... every time I typed the command cd /... it show me the following error:

> cd /usr/sap/S03/SUM
/QOpenSys/usr/bin/-sh: cd: bad argument count

Can you help me please to understand what is wrong here? I can´t understand! Maybe the reason is the shell... I don´t know exactly. :(

Best regards,

    Hello to all,

    I already solved this issue... as workaround I did other approach! Before I go to qp2term, with QSECOFR user, I typed the command CHGCURDIR DIR('/usr/sap/<SID>/SUM/') and only then I went to qp2term and start the Software Update Manager (SUM) with the following command:

    ./STARTUP confighostagent <SID>

    Best regards,
