Homogeneous system copy - CONTROL.SQL file not found

Dear SAP gurus,

I'm in the process of a homogeneous system copy (Oracle Specific). I am

in the Import phase (Backup/Restore database step) and sapinst is stopped

with the following error:

ERROR. File not found:CONTROL.SQL.

In the System Copoy Guide "System copy for SAP Systems Based on SAP

Netweaver 7.0 SR3 ABAP+Java" stands that CONTROL.SQL should be placed

from source <INSTDIR> to target <SAPINST_INSTDIR>.

I put CONTROL.SQL in <SAPINST_INSTDIR> of my target system but sapinst is stopping there with ERROR. File not found:CONTROL.SQL..

Anyone has experience the same issue?

Thanks in advance, Marc

    What is the complete path on your target SAPINST directory where you copied your Control.sql file ?

      Thanks guys for your help!

      >Please make sure that control.sql file should be present in installation directory like <path>/sapinst_instdir/<ABAP/Java>/.....

      >not in /tmp/sapinst_instdir

      Sunny, this pointed me to the solution.

    That should have done the trick

    The file might be corrupted, you can try copying it again from source and make sure permissions are fine.
