Support Package uprade in endless loop


Hello experts,

we have a SP upgrade (from ECC level 10 to SP-level 16) running in a queue that is getting imported via SPAM (version 36). The import has been running for more than 24 hours, is this normal or did I hit an endless loop?

I noticed it has been running (and still is) in one phase only

for ages:


In the log files I can see this warning:

Background job RDDIMPDP could not be started or terminated abnormally

Looking around in this forum I think I've found the solution, I have to reschedule the background job RDDIMPDP.

But my problem is that am running in downtime-minimized mode in SPAM and I cannot logon to sap system anymore, it gives me a syntax error if I try to. How can I cancel this SPAM import, can I somewhere kill processes, or should I just restart the SAP application server??

Can you please, please advise? Your help is really appreciated!
