Migration Query : SAPCAR returns with error 36 on step EXTRACTORASTAGE1_IND

Hi guys,

Having gotten past most of the grief from before, we have hit another issue that is SO close to where the Import ACTUALLY happens, I can SMELL it.

We encountered similar issues a few hours back, but got by them by changing permissions and running slibclean.

The issue we have encountered is

SAPCAR returns with error 36 on step EXTRACTORASTAGE1_IND

Anyways, the following error happens, when the bar hits 100% of the "Extracting ORACLE staging area" step.

This is the Install log

    Hi Bradley,

    I could smell it in your logs too 😊

    I found this in your log ..

    <b>

    Installation tool: Permission changes for

    /oracle/stage/920_64/Disk1/SAP/PATCHINST owner=oraqtg group=dba

    SAPCAR: could not create symbolic link (error 36). File exists

    </b>

    /sapinst/inst_temp/SAPCAR returns with error 36. I think its something to do with symbolic link

    Regards,

    Siddhesh

    Hi,

    Pl check this . It might help

    HP-UX 11.x only: different staging area archive

    If your operating system is HP-UX 11.x, you must use the Oracle

    staging area archive for HP-UX 11.x rather than the one for

    HP-UX 10.x.

    Change the ARCHIVE key in the section [EXTRACTORASTAGE_IND_ORA]

    of the command file:

    Change the line

    ARCHIVE=$STEP_CD_PATH$/@OS@/@PLATFORM@/ORASTAGE.CAR

    to

    ARCHIVE=$STEP_CD_PATH$/@OS@/HPUX_11/ORASTAGE.CAR

    Extracted from S Note 101318

    Regards
