background process On Hold RFC BASIS patches


Hi Experts,

I have a ECC6 system running on Solaris 10 with Oracle as database. We intend to use this system as a Production server. I am facing the following problem.

I started the import of the BASIS patches SAPKB70007 to SAPKB70011 in SPAM as a background process. I was monitoring the job in SM37 when I got a message that the program SAPMSSY0 was modified during the run. So I started the process again in the background through SPAM.

After almost 15 hours I checked the process to still find it active (SM37). Then I checked the processes using SM50 and found that the background process that was running this job showing the status as On Hold and the reason as RFC with the report SAPLSTPA.

SPAM shows status in red colour as XPRA_EXECUTION with current action as Queue Import (in background)

I am scared to kill this process as I do not want the patch import to be affected.

Can I kill this process and restart the import and continue to patch my system? Will killing this process prevent me from further patching the system thus requiring my to re-install SAP?
