Cannot import profiles in RZ10 - Urgent

Dear Gurus,

I am not able to import all profiles in RZ10 through Utilities --> Import Profiles --> Of active Servers

I tried to import these profiles manually by browsing but the problem is, while browing its not showing me complete path.For e.g. it should read from path
Hostname\SAPLOC\sid\SYS\profile\START_DVEBMGS02_hostname but from this path its not able to read the last character

Upon some analysis, I noticed that the relevant table / structure in this scenario "PFFILEHTBL" has a component "FILENAME" whose Length is only 60. Where as the characters involved in the entire path

including the profile name is 61

I can download the key for this object and with the help of our ABAPer, I can edit the 'lenght" feild but is there any work around before editing any standard object? Is there any note which I can apply to fix this problem? Please advice

Request you all gurus to kindly advice ASAP as I am facing this problem on our ECC PRD Server and all the activities are held up.

Best Regards,

    One obvious workaround:

    Rename the file, give it a shorter name.

    • if you are shortening the names, you have to edit at least the start-profile and enter the new name of the (instance profile)...

      be sure, that all profiles are in one directory. accessible from all your servers.
