    We need to regenerate all of the programs. I was able to fix this issue by running transaction code SAMT. We could not start SGEN because that transaction was also affected by the error.

    1. Run tcode SAMT.
    2. Double click on the Generate program line item.
    3. Click on the "Create" button in order to create a new program set.
    4. Enter a short description.
    5. Enter programs to be included in the program set.
    6. These programs should be found by investigating the latest dev_w* logs in the work directory.
    7. Once back on the main screen, click on the newly created task once and then click on the "Task" executable button.
    8. Once the SNAP table issue gets resolved, you will now start getting "normal" ABAP dumps. These dumps will have clues as to which programs need to be activated next. For example, if you want to get SM61 working again, try starting that tcode. You will get an ABAP dump showing which program is the culprit. Try activating that program using the above process. For certain ones, I would add multiple programs to the program set. For example, CL_WB*, CL_GUI*, CL_SALV*, CL_ALV*, etc...
    9. With some repetition of the above process, I was able to eventually manually generate enough programs to get us back to SM61.
    10. We added our app servers and then started SGEN.
    11. SGEN is still running now...

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Hello Indrajith,

    Try activating SNAP table using SE11 or SE14.

    And if programs get dumps activate them individually from SE38.

    Then try running SGEN.

    This will resolve your issue.

      Hello Thanks for your reply.

      Yes we did try running the SGEN . unfortunatelly the Job which gets triggerred is being sent to scheduled state . and we cannot move it to active since we were not able to access Sm37/Se38 .



      and also tried activating the table from SE14 . but on clicking on the activate button the below screen appears again .

    The problem may not be related to table SNAP but to any, many, every table(s) in your copy, as the new version of snap is detected only when system try to generate a dump, basically you get a dump declaring that it's no longer possible to generate a dump hiding the original error...

    Was SNAP the table mentioned in 'we had a requirement to import a single table', are you able to display its import log from original system?

    • So just to be clear, the system was working fine immediately after the system copy, no problems, but then after importing the single table EDI40 all these problems began. Is that correct? If so, it would indeed seem that this single table import is the likely cause of the error. When you say that you imported a single table, what exactly do you mean? How did you do this? Also, can you revert to a backup taken after the system copy but before the EDI40 import?

      Cheers,
      Matt

    Hello Indrajith,

    I think there is no disk or datafile related issues.

    Is there any error messages on SM21?

    Regards,

    Hi Indra.

    During the system migration(System copy ) have you used the same version of media's? Could you share the version details in source and target systems?

    Hi Indrajith.

    You have to check the SAP kernel & DBSL patch levels based on your target system. if possible upgrade the latest kernel level and then check the system.
