Saint Import Failure for Support Packs and Addon's



I am importing supports packs and addons onto our ECC 5 QA system, we are going from SP19 to SP21, I am using SAINT to import the new ST-A/PI and PI_BASIS plus lots of other support packs -ABA/Basis/BW etc.

The import worked successfully in DEV with no major problems, as part of the DEV import, we created a transport for modified SAP objects in SPDD and SPAU.

When I started to import into QA, I was asked 'Do you want to add modification adjustments to the queue', I replied yes and added the transport produced for SPDD and the transport produced by SPAU on DEV, these added to the queue and the status was green so I continued.

Now the IMPORT1 phase has failed with the error :

The installation was stopped, since an error occurred during the phase

DDIC_IMPORT, which the Add-On Installation Tool is unable to resolve

without your input.

after you have corrected the cause of the error, continue with the

import by choosing Continue in the queue display.

the following details help you to analyze the problem:

- Error in phase: DDIC_IMPORT


- Return code: 0008

- Error message: Wrong sequence of Packages in the tp buffer (e.g.


Also in the SAINT log I can see :

Import phase 'DDIC_IMPORT' (23.01.2009, 12:29:42)

Wrong sequence of Packages in the tp buffer (e.g. XXXK911XXX)

Interrupt the import due to an error situation (23.01.2009, 12:29:43)

Display detailed informations concerning the error in phase 'DDIC_IMPORT'

Abort the import due to an error situation (23.01.2009, 12:43:20)

XXXK911XXX is the transport produced by SPAU in DEV, has the import failed due to me adding this transport to the queue? binding in the transports like this is new at the SP19 support pack level as I have never seen this before.

When I select continue the IMPORT1 phase just restarts and fails.

Has anyone seen this error before?

Thanks for any help.
