Error while creating request list Unable to detect the SAP system directory

21 Views

We are upgrading SAP BW (NW 7.0 EHP1) to SAP BW (NW 7.3)

source OS: Windows 2008 R2, source DB: MSSQL server 2008 R2 SP1 CU3

I had started the upgrade by running: STARTUP.BAT

I had started the DSUGui on the server (CI / DB on the same server) from: D:\usr\sap\BP1\upg\sdt\exe\DSUGui.bat

I ran both programs (run as administrators).

Once SAP Gui connects and was able to create userid/ password and when ready to start the initialization phase (click next)

gives me the error

Error while creating request list - see preceeding messages. Unable to detect the SAP system directory on the local host

I had tried STARTUP.BAT "jce_policy_zip=Z:\export-import\downloads\jce_policy-6' and still the same error.

I had started DSUGui.bat with trace and the trace file contents are
