SAP Developer Workplace SP19 patching - runs 4 ever

Hi folks,

I have been busy patching a SAP Developer workplace 2004 SP16 ( using MaxDB ) towards SP19 but I am facing some possible issues ...

The SAPINST always runs till step 10 "J2EE Engine Server Core" and that's it ... the status says "processing" and nothing happens anymore ...

The log files in the 'ADA' directory don't get changed anymore as of the timestamp it starts with that step ...

There are no errors or warnings being mentionned ...

How long is this supposed to be running ? I left it already run one day and night ( I think - I logged off from the SAPINST after 6 hours running in the day ) ...

I have a fairly normal average desktop pc ...

Is there any way I can find out whether somethin is actually happening ?

    Hi Steven,

    the question doesn't really belongs to JDI area 😊

    anyway... please check state of database, the chances are the <b>db is full</b> or close to that state. If so, add a data volume (or two 😊

    best regards 😊

    I solved the problem by removing the current install completely and did an immediate patch to 19 .. somehow that solved the problem ... not sure why it stopped the first 5 times ...
