Upgrade of NW 6.40 to NW04sSR1 7.00: Error in EXTRACTKRN_PRE



I'm trying to upgrade from NW04 (6.40) to NW04s SR1 (7.00).

Currently I am at Parameter Input phase of PREPARE.

System Details :


Source System

SAP Release : WAS-ABAP 6.40 + BW 3.5

DB Version : Max-DB 7.5 Build 27

OS Version : Suse Linux-9 (Kernel2.

Target System

SAP Release : WAS-ABAP 7.00 + BW 7.0

DB Version : Max-DB 7.6 Build 18

OS Version : Suse Linux-9 (Kernel2. + Glibc-2.3.3-98.61)


I keep on getting this error in the Parameter Input module:

ERROR: Extraction of "/sapdb/cds/netweaver2004s/Ker_NW2004sSR1/KN_LINUX_I386_AUPG/DBINDEP/SAPEXE.SAR" to "/usr/sap/put/exe"

failed. Check log file CAR.SAV for error message.

the Details of CAR.SAV files are as follows:-


EXECUTING /usr/sap/put/tools/SAPCAR (/usr/sap/put/tools/SAPCAR) -xf /sapdb/cds/netweaver2004s/Ker_NW2004sSR1/KN_LINUX_I386_AUPG/DBINDEP/SAPEXE.SAR

SAPCAR: processing archive /sapdb/cds/netweaver2004s/Ker_NW2004sSR1/KN_LINUX_I386_AUPG/DBINDEP/SAPEXE.SAR (version 2.01)

Process with ID 10798 terminated with status 5


This error occurs during the EXTRACTKRN_PRE phase. I went thru the procedures recommended in SAP Note 741249. Still same error.

I even tried to follow Error in EXTRACTKRN_PRE , but that did not help me at-all.

Still I am getting the same error.

Please help me.

Thanking you in advance.
