  • Hi Eugen,

    As this question mostly relates to system copies and installations, and the SWPM tool, I have moved it to the "Software Logistics" tag, and added a couple secondary tags. Choosing the best tag is important when posting questions to ensure it gets in front of the right people, though you have some of the best experts already helping you here.

    Also, please be sure to search thoroughly before posting, as oftentimes you'll find that others have had the same problem and it has been answered.

    Cheers,
    Matt

    I have found a workaround for this bug. While the documentation clearly states, and while it has always been the case in the past, that it is sufficient for the installation user to be an indirect member of the local Administrators group -- i.e., your domain user could be a member of a domain/global group that in turn is a member of local Administrators -- this is what is failing. The workaround is to add your user account (installation user) directly to the local Administrators group, logout and login again, then re-run SWPM (you can 'continue' with your previous option if you don't wish to change any installation parameters). After this, the installation proceeds normally.

    It's still a bug, and this is a workaround. You shouldn't have to do this.

    I have submitted this information in the feedback comments upon conclusion of the SWPM process. It has been my experience that the Software Logistics group does indeed read that feedback and take it seriously. If you try this workaround and it works for you (after you get the error the first time), I encourage you to share that same feedback at the end of the tool, and to save your installation log (sapinst_dev.log) in case the engineers at SAP get back to you and would like to look at it.

    Cheers,
    Matt

    Got my problem solved through a ticket meanwhile.

    Seems that sapinst ist doing permissions differently when selecting the export for a systemcopy.

    I needed to add permissions manually to my Export-User as SAPINST did not do so by itself.

    It was well described in note

    2445952 - Correct user account authorization to run SWPM / 70SWPM on Microsoft Windows

    and after my ticket, note

    2415352 - "Account uid="S-1-5-32-544" does not exist" error in sapinst_dev.log

    was updated with a reference to 2445952.

    The very same SAPINST was able to install a new system from scratch. The problem was only with the Exportfunction for a system copy.

    Hop this might help others as well

    Hi Eugen,

    There is a few discussion related to this error, most of them point to the installation been done under the wrong user.

    Read the installation guide for Windows, and make sure you run the install under the right user, additional to that make sure all necesary users exist.

    Regards, JP

    I can only support Juan's answer.

    S-1-5-32-544 is the identifier of group "Administrators". During the execution the installer was not able find/reach this identifier and fails.

    If it is a "Domain" installation, ensure the account running the installer belongs to group "Domain Administrators".

    If it is a "Local" installation, ensure the account running the installer belongs to group "Administrators".

    For more details, refer to the installation guide at section "Required User Authorization for Running the Installer".



    Best regards,

    Hendrik

    Hello All,

    We have maintained the Administrators group on the required user where we are installing and still we are facing the same issue.

    Can you please suggest how to solve this error?

    errno=FF-0001.

    This was the error number in the logs but with SUID doesn't exist.

    Regards,

    Sidhi Rj

    Hi,

    We had the same issue when using 70SWPM10SP19_1 but after using 70SWPM10SP19_4, able to move forward. If you are already using SP19_4 then try with SP18_4 - these two versions worked for us. Hope it helps.

    Thanks
