Preprocessing error. Checks after phase SHADOW_IMPORT_INC were negative!

Dear SAP gurus,

I am performing an SAP update ECC60 EHP3 to EHP5 (Linux, Oracle 10.2)and I got stuck at Preprocessing phase with the following error:

Checks after phase MAIN_SHDIMP/SUBMOD_SHDIMP/SHADOW_IMPORT_INC were negative!

Last error code set: Unresolved requests in buffer <SID>

Check log files 'SHDALLIMP.ELG' and '/usr/sap/trans/<SID>/EHPI/abap/log/SAPehpi.ECO'

...

Choose action:

-Repeat phase

-Initialize phase

-Exit

/usr/sap/<SID>EHPI/abap/log # more SHDALLIMP.ELG

I read in another thread that this might be an issue related with the buffer. However, it's not very clear to me how to solve this.

Has anyone of you experience this?Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance, Marc

    • Hello all,

      issue is solved.

      After there was no reaction from SAP Support and the deadline came close, I decided to do some tries. (first making a backup of the whole system of course)

      So I chose "Repeat phase MAIN_SHDIMP/SUBMOD_SHDIMP/SHADOW_IMPORT_INC to continue at the point it stopped. "

      The error came again - but with a different Support Package (you see the support package in the file SHDALLIMP.ELG )

      The first error was with SAPK-70103INPIBASIS.

      The second one was with SAPKW70103, but at this time, the SAPK-70103INPIBASIS has been importet with Return code 0000

      So I did again a continue, it also importet SAPKW70103 with Return code 0004, which is ok

      The phase ended without further errors.

      Reason for error situations was, that tp imports always 2 transports in parallell. (You see in the buffer file, that it has SYNCMARKs every two files, it is also specified in the profile tp uses).

      There is a note about this feature, 1127194

      Meanwhile SAP has answered the call, they said that I did the correct actions and referenced SAP Note 1596921

      So our EHP Upgrade is finished, we are in SPAU phase.

      Regards,

      Roland
