Upgrade Stopped - Unable to logon to system

Windows 2003 Server 64bit , Sql 2005, Upgrade erp2004 -> erp2005.

Upgrade has stopped in phase startsap_nbas, and although the system will start you are unable to logon due to the error "error when initialising the work area SYST".

On investigation there seems to be a problem caused by the datatype change of field syst-modno (changed from char to int4 during 640->700). The trace for w0 is


trc file: "dev_w0", trc level: 1, release: "700"

A Error when initializing the work area SYST..

and then this error repeats continuously....

As this is during the 'Switch' phases I checked the table DD03L and DD03L~(shadow) and altered to live table accordingly to see if this eliminated the error. The trace describes the expectation of type 172 not 40 - but not sure which one the kernel wants - i even tried to revert the shadow table to char1.

I would appreciate any pointers that you may have.

    Were you able to proceed. We are also facing a similar problem. The EU_IMPORT phase has shutdown the SAP instance and then upon starting it does not allow you to login.

    The message is "error when initializing the work area SYST"

    Pls let us know how did you get rid of this issue.

    Pls also reply to my email address

    Thanks in advance.
