Error on LODSAPKRN during EP Install

Hi All,

We are trying to install NW04s SR1(usage type EP) on OS400/DB2.

We patched the SAPinst installation kit as per the note 707805. Also exchanged the control files attached to the note 927734 before starting with the installation. Also the level of PTF's was as per the infoapar II13868 dated 15th Sept, 2006.

We are doing a central system installation. After all the input was given and the installation started, it gets stuck in step 1 of 35 where it loads the iSeries Kernel library.

The error log it shows is:

ERROR 2006-10-09 14:49:51

MOS-02001 Call of command "LODSAPKRN DEV(*STMF) MNTPNT


DVD_NW_2004S_SR1_KERNEL_AIX__OS_400/KU_OS400_PPC64') KRNLIB(SAPEPDUC) KRNASP(1)" failed. Exception

is "CPF0006".

We have kept all the downloaded objects for the installation in the

IFS. The

path '/NW04S_OBJ/NW_04S_SR1_OS400_UCKERNEL/

DVD_NW_2004S_SR1_KERNEL_AIX__OS_400/KU_OS400_PPC64' exists on the IFS.

The sapinst also created the following files in QSYS:

X1000 *LIB QSYS PROD temporary objects


in /NW04S_OBJ/NW_04S_SR1_OS.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot,

    We have tried running the cmd manually (loading to a test library)to get more detailed error messages. Here are the results:





    /KU_OS400_PPC64/DBIN failed.

    RestoreKitPartFromSAR: Failed to extract archive SAPEXEC1.SAR in


    /KU_OS400_PPC64/DBINDEP to save file X2465/SAPEXEC1.

    RestoreKitFromSAR: PANIC: Could not restore archive



    LodSapKit: Failed to restore kernel parts from archives below



    Failed to load first part of SAP kernel.

    Errors occurred in command.
