JSPM Warning "not a valid update" while scanning inbox-directory

Hello Everybody,

we use NWDI to develop our own applications for Netweaver CE and to create the SCA-files, which we deploy using JSPM. The SCA with software-component in version 1.0 was successfully installed with JSPM.

Now we have the same software-component in version 2.0 and try to install it, but JSPM does not recognize it neither as an update nor as a new component.

In the scan_inbox.log of JSPM i found this entry:

Dec 1, 2009 5:54:52 PM Warning: Delivery unit with version located in /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in/ is not a valid update for component with version

I tried using JSPM with option -config=/jspm/forceMode=true -config=/jspm/deployVersionRule=updateAll and set the maximum rights of the SCA-file on file system, but nothing helped.

When i undeploy version 1.0 manually using NWDS, version 2.0 is recognized and can be installed by JSPM, so it can't be a corrupt file or something like that. But undeploying with NWDS is just a workaround, not a solution for the problem and no option for our customers.

I tried the deployment on Netweaver CE 7.1 and CE 7.1 EHP 1 with the same behavior of JSPM.

JSPM itself is not under NWDI-Control.

I already read the JSPM manual, searched the forum and looked out for SAP notes, but I found nothing about the mentioned warning or any hint how to define a "valid update".

Any ideas or suggestions, what else can I do?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

    Update JSPM and then try.

    Is the version 1 component showing in the deployed components tab page?

    If not synchronise the database and the SDM repository as follows.

      Hi Everybody,

      meanwhile we found out, that it is possible to install a higher release of a software component by using the option "Business Package" in JSPM.

      Best regards,
