Error while load paches from front end through SPAM

Hi Experts,

When I am loading the support patches from SPAM , A messege is comming .

"There is no decompression software installed on the application server."

We have 2 application servers and 1 central instance.I tried to do this by login in to each of the application servers, but i'm getting the same error.

Please note that we have SAPCAR in our \usr\sap\<SID>\sys\exe\run directory.

Please help.

Thanks & regards,

Shanahas.K

    Hi Shanahas,

    Did you extract those paches before you attempt to uploaded from option 'front end'?

    Files .PAT and .ATT must be available to load via front end.

    Thanks,

    Seems permissions of SAPCAR executable is not fine then. Verify it.

    Otherwise, first decompress the patches on application server and put the extracted files into trans/EPS/in. Then SPAM -> Load packages --> From Application server

    Thanks
