Stuck at PARMVNT_DROPVIEW phase in during upgrade to BI 7.0

15 Views

Hi

We are upgrading to BI7.0 from BW3.1C and and during the phase PARMVNT_DROPVIEW, it returns with a error code=8 during the phase when it ties to drop views before the PARCONV phase.

We tried repeating the phase with "init" as the option, but still comes back with the same error.

The error screen reports View latest 'TP*.ECO' files in log-directory for details.

When we see the latest TP*.ECO, which is TP00.ECO, it shows us the following:

This is /usr/sap/BWA/SYS/exe/run/tp version 370.00.09 (release 700)

Warning: Parameter INTERRUPT is no longer used.

Warning: Parameter DAYLIGHT_SHUTDOWN is no longer used.

Warning: Parameter STOPDB is no longer used.

tp finished with return code: 8

meaning:

A tool used by tp produced errors

We also checked the lof files for the stage PARMVNT_DROPVIEW , which are MVNTDROPVIEW.ELG

MVNTDROPVIEW.LOG respectively and the output of them are as follows:

2EETQ399 View latest 'TP*.ECO' files in log-directory for details.

This doesn't show us any error of wht it terminated. all it shows is Dialouge:ERROR.

We did the upgrade a couple of times on our sandbox environment before we started the upgrade here and this never happened.

We checked the notes, but haven't find anythinig relevant. I am still looking into it..but just thought of pushing it here, in hope someone may have seen it...

Any ideas folks?

Thanks
