NW 7.0 EHP1_SP3 error: SAP_ABA is in an undefined state

26 Views

*Moderators: Please note that this original post was moved to the SAP ERP forum, however, this post has nothing to do with ERP. I am applying NW BI 7, EHP 1 to my BI system, and am having problems with the EHP Installer. Please do not move from this forum.

Hello SDNers,

I'm implementing SAP Enhancement Package 1 (SP3) for NW 7.0 on an MSCS BI system (ABAP).

I've downloaded the patches, and the SPSTab.xml file, and have them all in place. I started the application and it gets through the extraction phase ok, except it errors out during the PREP_INIT/VALCHK_INI

See below:

09/03/19 11:42:26 START OF PHASE PREP_INIT/VALCHK_INI

SEVERE ERROR: SAP_ABA is in an undefined state,

that is not safe to be upgraded !!!

Reason: Upgrade wasn't completed.

Call the SAP Support!!!

- "continue"

- "cancel"

Enter one of these options continue := continue

ERROR: Component 'SAP_ABA ' is in an undefined state 'Upgrade wasn't completed' - maybe upgrade was not reset?

I have encountered earlier errors where I was forced to upgrade my EHP Installer (From NW 7.00 patch 8, to 9, finally to 10) and I think this error might be a result of having run the EHPI in an earlier version.

I have read the Troubleshooting documentation, the installation guide, and the prerequisite Notes, as well as done an extensive Google/SAP Notes/SDN forums search finding no references to this error.

I have tried to reset the installation using the EHPI reset functionality, but I just get the message:

"Resetting the EhP Installation is not possible"

There must be some indicator that the EHPI has run before, to cause this error, but I have completely deleted the EHPI directory, so I know it's not in there.

Has anyone encountered anything similar? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Troy Shane
