System Copy - Export Preparation fails to start

Hi,

I have NW04sSR1 system with Stack 08 running on AIX, Oracle. I am trying to prepare the system for Export Preparation. Using the Master CD, when i start the export using NW04sSR1 -- Additional lifecycle tools - system copy - Oracle - Distributed Installation -- Web AS ABAP -- Export Preparation.

SAPINST asks for the path for profiles, and then on the next screen it gives the following errors:

I get the same error when using Central system option on systems where CI and DB are both on the same host.

This is an upgraded system from BW 3.0B to NW2004s SR1.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

    Checkout (or post) the logfiles in >/usr/sap/F01/tmp_install.

    Besides that, make sure you have the latest r3export kernel files.

    Hi there.

    I posted this problem in a Note to SAP - This is the answer (and the last part was my help)

    Can you please check your profiles for any inconsistencies

    in the hostname.

    For instance it could be that the 'hostname' within the profiles

    does not match the current one.

    This was solved previously on an oracle system by

    copying .dbenv_host.csh

    and replaced the .cshrc.csh with this copy.

    What is the user used when running sapinst? (root?) please

    Add the environment variable dbms_type=ORA to user root before

    starting sapinst.

    I hope this can help

    Hello Samuli,

    As discussed please try the following. I am placing it here so that others may also try this.

    Please stop SAPINST and modify the CONTROL.XML in your installation

    directory:

    Search for the string 'pfdir.getChildNodes' and replace the

    line

    for (var it =

    pfdir.getChildNodes(/^START_[A-Z0-9]+_[a-zA-z][a-zA-Z0-9-]*$/);

    !it.isDone(); it.next()) {

    with the line:

    for (var it = pfdir.getChildNodes(/^START_[A-Z0-9]+_[a-zA-Z0-9-]*$/);

    !it.isDone(); it.next()) {

    Save the modification and restart SAPINST. It is not sufficient to

    just resume SAPinst in order to fix the problem. You have to restart

    the installation from scratch with the modified control.xml.

    If you restart the installer from DVD, choose the installation service

    on the first screen, and when the next screen appears, interrupt the

    installer. Then patch the control.xml in the installation directory and

    restart the installer (take a backup of the control.xml).

    Hope this information helps.

    Regards,

    David

      Hello david,

      thanks for the effort, but the solution did not work for me - tried the way you have described it and also using the modified control.xml on a brand new installation (completely removed sapinst directory and updated control.xml after beginnig of a new installation).

      Any more ideas would be appreciated and rewarded.

      Thank you in advance,

      H. Petrov
