    Hi Ramon,

    In the thread "Error on LODSAPKRN during EP Install", Thomas mentioned the following:

    **********

    I am pretty sure that LODSAPKRN is not capable of the long paths. A workaround could be to create a link to the DVD root (or provide a copy with shorter names) and run the command manually with adapted paths.

    **********

    Could it be the reason for your case? More info is availabe in that thread.

    Good luck,

    Victor

    Hi Victor,

    Here is the command when I received the error.

    Error message CPF0006 running 'APYSAP TYPE(KERNEL) SID(DEV) DSTLIB(SAP700DEV) DLTSQLPKG(NO) DSTDIR

    ('/usr/sap/put/exe')'

    SEVERE ERROR(S) OCCURRED IN EXTRACTKRN_PRE !!!

    Thanks,

    • Hi Ramon,

      The major source of information should be the joblog of the job running APYSAP. During the upgrade this should be the joblog of the SAPup job.

      When trying to reproduce by hand make sure you have

      - SAPUP *LIB in your library list and an

      - empty target directory '/usr/sap/put/exe'.

      If you want you can frame your APYSAP call with STRO4TRC and ENDO4TRC from the 700 kernel library (add SAP700DEV to your libl only for the call of xxxO4TRC and remove it afterwards). Specify a trace id as a name, your job and qinter as the subsystem.

      HTH,

      Thomas

    What Kernel CD/DVD are you using? I had problems loading the kernel from DVD that came with my upgrade kit. I downloaded 51031792 to solve the problem.

    thanx
