Error Phase TABIM_UPG


In the upgrade of 4.6C to ERP2005 SR2 on iSeries I have the following error in TABIM_UPG phase. This is error on TABIMUPG.ELG:




2EETW109 table "BSKEYWORD" does not exist in nametab.

Long text:


Table &V#& does not exist and therefore cannot be transported.

System Response


What to do

Export: Ensure that the table has been entered correctly.

Import: Find out why the table is not active. An error may have

occurred when activating the table, or the table description may not

have been transported.

1 ETP111 exit code : "8"</i>

I don't understand what can I do...could you please help me???

In this phase the system is down.

Thanks in advanced

    Hello Moreno,

    It seems that the upgrade is having some problem activating table BSKEYWORD. I understand that the R/3 is down now. But you can still start it manually then login with DDIC in client 000. Then go to SE14 to activate the table. Or find out why this table can't be activated. You might need to reconstruct it if necessary. Anyway, after that, you should see the runtime object exists. You can test it by displaying the runtime object in SE14. After that, shut down the R/3 system, and repeat the phase with INIT.

    Let us know if you can pass the phase.

    Best Regards,

    Joseph Zhao

      This is the part of SAP Note 961410:

      Source Release 4.6C and below only: Phase TABIM_UPG

      If your source release is based on SAP Basis 4.6C or lower, the upgrade may stop in phase TABIM_UPG. Log file SAPI700TG2.<SID> shows the following error message:

      2EETW109 table "BSKEYWORD" does not exist in nametab.

      To prevent this error, proceed as follows:

      1. Before you start the upgrade, go to subdirectory "cofiles" of the upgrade directory.

      2. Create a file with the name A700TG2.SAP.

      3. Open the file and enter the following:

      I 2EETW109 table "BSKEYWORD" does not exist in nametab

      The file must consist of one line only, beginning in column one.

      4. Save the file.
