EHP4 installation - Error in phase STOP_SHDI_LAST


Hi All,

I have a unique problem here and am hoping someone can help. When installation EHP4 SPS03 onto our ERP 6.0 system (HP-UX 11.31/MaxDB and ERP 6.0 SPS15), I get an error in phase STOP_SHDI_LAST. Basically the shadow system cannot be stopped.

Error message in log SAPehpi.ECO:

EXECUTING /usr/sap/eh4/EHPI/abap/bin/stopsap_shd (stopsap_shd) -t R3 -i DVEBMGS0

I basically cannot stop the shadow instance unless I kill off everyone shadow process manually. I have checked oss notes 525677 and 877795 but there anre no solutions to this problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
