homogenous source system copy error


i came across the following error during a database dependent (SQL) homogenous system copy of Java based WebAS using SAPINST.

i had started the setup from the server directly and not remotely.

i have been using user with full access contrrol for the server.

i had followed system copy guide and used w master dvd (32 bit) sapinst program to copy the source server as we are in nw 7.0 version.

suggestions are appreciated

SAPInst calls the LogInquirer. The output of the LogInquirer can be found in file sapinst_loginquirer.log.

    I was faced with same error, in my investigation (which solved my problem), it was due to the *.SCA's on the Java Component Install DVD being 'incorrectly' updated with 'newer' *.SCA's.

    to resolve I deleted the Java Component DVD from O/S, copied the original un-edited one onto the install O/S drive, and started SapInst with 'new' option.

    this enabled me to get past this error.
