SDM.jar Error when installing NW04 Sneak Preview in Phase 9

When installing the SP11 NW04 Sneak Preview I get on Phase 9 of the installation the error:

Unable to access jarfile C:\Programme\sapinst_instdir\NW04SR1\WEBAS_COPY\ONE_HOST/installsdm/SDM.jar

The mentioned directory is indeed empty. On the downloaded distribution I cannot find a file called SDM.jar.

Any ideas?

    I have had this before and I am not 100% sure but I think it could be resolved by rebooting the PC and re-starting the setup.

    Also check the free space on your C drive and make sure you have enough virtual memory (depending of course on how much internal memory your computer has).

    Good luck.

      Hello,

      I have the same problem and rebooting doesn't solve this mess:

      WARNING 2006-02-22 15:26:14

      Execution of the command "C:\j2sdk1.4.2_10/bin/java.exe '-Xmx64M' '-Djava.ext.dirs=C:\Programme\sapinst_instdir\NW04SR1\WEBAS_COPY\ONE_HOST/installsdm/libs' '-jar' 'C:\Programme\sapinst_instdir\NW04SR1\WEBAS_COPY\ONE_HOST/installsdm/SDM.jar' 'autoinstall' 'sdmHome=C:\usr\sap/J2E/JC00/SDM/program' 'popDir=C:\Programme\sapinst_instdir\NW04SR1\WEBAS_COPY\ONE_HOST/installsdm' 'sdmRoot=C:\usr\sap/J2E/JC00/SDM/root' 'javaHome=C:\j2sdk1.4.2_10' 'Sdmadminport=50017' 'Sdmguiport=50018' 'Sdmhttpport=50019' 'extractpackedinst=true'" finished with return code 1.

      Output: Unable to access jarfile C:\Programme\sapinst_instdir\NW04SR1\WEBAS_COPY\ONE_HOST/installsdm/SDM.jar

      Where can I find or download this sdm.jar file?

      Thanks in advance

    • Hi,

      I had the same problem and I've done the following which solved this issue:

      1) de-install all SAP target system

      2) Copy again the files exported from SAP source system

      3) Re-install SAP target system

      Perhaps some inconsticency happened during the copy made before...

      Regards
