Help !!! Homogeneous system copy hold on step: Create Database

Group,

we use homogeneous system copy to install PRD system. The system hold on step : create databse.

When we check the server and found the data library has been restored from tape. The installation just hold on the step and can't going on. And there is not additional information on install directory except to see the file keydb.xml were updated.

Could we adjust the file keydb.xml to continue the installation ? If we could, how ? Thanks in advance.

Regards.

Jenny

    Hi Jenny,

    The first question would be:

    Is the database restored properly ?

    How many objects are in there ?

    First stop the SAPinst program so that no "duplicate updates" happen on the log/xml files.

    Most likely you are doing this on another server and therefore the old users are not available which creates an error during restore. This causes often/always an abnormal end of the SAPinst.

    If this is the case, you might want to check the keydb.xml after that you copied that and search for "ERROR" in uppercase and the finally try to set this to OK. If you then rerun SAPinst, this problem is hopefully solved. Unfortunately this is more or less an "standard-error" in this procedure - at least up to 1 year ago I don't know on any generic solution. That's why I do not use this procedure if not really necessary.

    Regards

    P.S.: Do not forget to distribute forum points as in the last questions - otherwise, you will receive less and less answers ...

      Hi Jenny,

      if you let me know a "useful" eMail adress, I can provide you with an "eazy copy" for ABAP only systems.
