Data unit C:\SAP_DOWNLOADS\51050166_1\DATA_UNITS\EXPORT_1 is not signed.

Dears,

I'm trying to install SAP ERP IDES Ehp7 on DB SYBASE and OS MS Windows Server 2016 using SWPM SP22 latest version.

It comes ti the screen asking for Installation Export 1 ECC 6.0 EhP7 SR2, then I browse to the correct path, it gives the following error.

Data unit C:\SAP_DOWNLOADS\51050166_1\DATA_UNITS\EXPORT_1 is not signed.

DETAILS: The found data unit must not be used.
SOLUTION: Ensure that you use the latest available version of Installation Export 1 ECC 6.0 EhP7 SR2 downloaded from the SAP Service Marketplace and ensure that its content is unchanged.

whatever I did, re-download, re-extract, re-browse, it stuck with the same error.

Please advise.

Thanks & Regards,

Muhammad

    The problem is within new SWPM since SP22 he needs a signature of the each export files. Please copy from the attachment all signature files to the corresponding folder after extracting than you can go further with installation. Contact SAP they will provide your the signature file for each export or you can direct message me for the same.

    • Hi,

      We have managed to address this problem.

      Raised this issue with SAP as an incident and they've provided SIGNATURE.SMF files for each of the EXPORT_1 to EXPORT_11 dump folders; SAP provides the attachment (referred above) on the incident as a zip file; Just unzip it in a temporary folder and copy the SIGNATURE.SMF files under each of the EXPORT_1 to EXPORT_11 directories, and after doing this, retry sapinst. It will not issue the error highlighted above.

      Hope that helps all looking for a solution on this issue.

    • Hi,

      Please see my updates above. SAP provides the signature files after raising the incident, that are required to be copied over under the export folders.

    Hi all,


    please check SAP Note 2510478 (Data unit /xx/xx/xx/SWPM is not signed with an official SAP signature) for more Information.

    • Hi Krzysztof,

      Agree. To fix the issue, we raised an incident on which SAP Support have provided the signature files; these are required to be copied over under the export folders, and then retrying sapinst eliminates the issue.

    Hi All,

    Hey fellows,

    Good evening.

    I had the same problem.

    I'm installing sap ecc 6.0 ehp7 ides on a VM with Oracle 12g.
    I have this error:

    Data unit XXX\Sap\51050166_Data\51050166_1\DATA_UNITS\EXPORT_1 is not signed.
    DETAILS: The found data unit must not be used.
    SOLUTION: Ensure that you use the latest available version of Installation Export 1 ECC 6.0 EhP7 SR2 downloaded from the SAP Service Marketplace and ensure that its content is unchanged.

    How could i contact SAP or solve this problem ? Sap can provide signature file for each export ?

    Thanks

    • You will have to raise an incident via SAP Support portal. Following that, a zip file containing the SIGNATURE.SMF files is provided by SAP Support. You need to copy these SIGNATURE.SMF files under respective folders (EXPORT_1 to EXPORT_11) and then retry installer.

    Hello everyone,

    The SAP Note 2622019 mentions that from SWPM SP22 each export media needs a separate signature file and to solve this issue an incident has to be submitted to SAP indicating the OS version and Database used for the IDES installation. Does anybody know if the signature files can be downloaded from the SAP Marketplace or any other website?

    Thanks a lot,

    Francisco.
