EhP4 Stack file format error in xml


Hi all,

My intention is to Upgrade an sap system 4.6C to Ecc6 including EhP4.

i am running through many problems since now 😔

Here is my newest one:

In solution manager i calculated a stack.xml. After that, i copied the files to the test system which i am upgrading. Now in phase "Stack configuration" i must provide the xml-file.

when i click next, i get an error:


The selected configuration file ("M:InstCds

w70ehp1SMSDXML_P01_20090520113757.307.xml") is not useable.

Reason: "File format error"


Update ....

OK my fault.

in SAP Note Number: 1022704 is the info that in case of start release BELOW 4.6, you cannot use the xml-file, you have to choose the txt-file 😔

Hm .. we have 4.6 which is not BELOW 4.6 but with the txt-file is works ... now i have the next error ...

i tried different files but every time the same error ...

Any idea ?
