ERROR> File "icmon.exe" not found, directory "I:usrsapDV1upgabapexe"


We are facing below error during check phase in upgrade from SAP4.6c to ECC6.0 EHP4.

Could you please help us to solve this issue.

The files from "dbclient.lst" in the kernel directory are kept.

Files and subdirectories can be protected from deletion

if they appear in a file "protect.lst" in the same directory

(each protected name in a separate line).

For security reasons, directory I:\usr\sap\DV1\SYS\exe\run

    Hello Bharathi,

    The error clearly says that icmon.exe is missing in .../abap/exe. Please manually copy the latest target release/level of icmon.exe to this directory and repeat the phase.

      We solved this issue.

      This is happened because of latest tp.exe. We updated latest tp.exe into exe and exenew folder before starting check phase, but during the check phase latest tp.exe deleting the icmon.exe.

      Now we downgrade the tp.exe into previous version, it works.

      It is our mistake.

      Thanks for your support.
