SAPinst terminates successfully, but export files are empty.


Dear All,

I have to system copy our QAS system.

- CI & DB installed in each other hosts. -> distributed system.

- SAP NetWeaver 7.0

- Process Integration system (XI)

- HP-UX 11.23

- Oralce

Problem : SAPinst terminates successfully, but the export is actually not done.

I didn't see the 'System Copy Method' dialog,

in which I can select the database-specific method' during sapinst step.

I found all threads in SDN, google and SAP notes.

- SAP Note Number: 1556874

- SAP Note Number: 1120872

SAPINST skips option "Use database specific tools" in System Copy

I try to use the option "SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME=<hostname>", but I still can't export any files.

I set the environment value like this : export SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME=<hostname>

and start sapinst like this : ./sapinst SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME=<hostname>.

Any method doesn't make the export files.

I checked default profile in DB server include 'j2ee/dbhost' and 'SAPDBHOST' value.

Also we copied START & INSTANCE profile of Central Instance to /sapmnt/<SID>/profile on DB server.

I heard the DB export need to global directory of CI server on DB server, right?

So I copied the global directory from CI sever to DB server.

But I can't export on DB server...

What should I do to export on source DB serve more?

I need your help who met this same problem!!

Thanks and Best regards,
