SUM - Error : Checks after phase MAIN_TRANSEXEC/PARCONV_TRANS were negative

Dear All,

I'm facing issues with the SUM tool  Ver1.0 SP07 Patch lvl 1.0, while trying to upgrade the DEV system to EHP6 .. SUM throws a error

at phase : MAIN_TRANSEXEC/PARCONV_TRANS ...

It says : Checks after phase MAIN_TRANSEXEC/PARCONV_TRANS were negative

I've gone through the SUM logs and other individual logs ..

I've summarized my findings below :

I've already updated TP ( 18th Mar 2013 ) and R3Trans ( 25th Mar 2013 ) with the latest versions available on Service Mkt Place !!

I understand that there are 3 nametabs in the DDXTT table that have MODEFLAG - ' U ' because of which SUM is unable to continue with the upgrade.

The nametab conversion is not happening succcessfully ...

What should be done here so that I can go ahead and finish off the upgrade through SUM ??

Please share your thoughts on this ...

Krish

    Hi Krish,

    The upgrade is stuck in the PARCONV_TRANS phase as the DDXTT have three entries with the U-Flag

    Can you please check the NCONV* logs with return code 8 and find that which tables have inactive nametabs.

    After finding the tables please perform the runtime & database check of the tables in the SE11 to find if there are any inconsistencies.

    Thank You.

    Regards,

    Deepika

    • Hello

      Once more if you have missed it:

      In the above thread i have provided there is a suggestion to update the DDXTT table with modflag set to A for the affected tables from the SQL.

      As you have already executed the report can you run the SQL and check the output ?

      SELECT TABNAME, MODEFLAG FROM SAPSR3.DDXTT WHERE MODEFLAG = 'U';

      If you have the entries there with take a backup of the table DDXTT (export using BRTools) and then update the corresponding table by changing the flag.

      Cheers

    Hi Krish,

    Try to run report RADPOCNV for table DVPOOLTEXT according note 686357 and check the behaviour again. I am not 100% sure this will help, but I believe it worths a try.

      Hi Ratish,

      Its 720 , not 721 ... I believe i've got the right R3trans and TP programs running ... the issue is with the table entries in DDXTT.

      I've got three name tabs with MODEFLAG : U

      This won't let me continue the upgrade 😔

    Hi Hugo,

    I've another problem here, SUM had stopped with the above error .. at this point I stopped the update process and tried to troubleshoot the 3 TABNAMES under the TABLE DDXTT ... from SQLPLUS ... in the process I restarted the SAP SYSTEM

    I know I shouldn't have restarted the SAP SYTEM while SUM was running/ongoing/stopped .. But then did it unkowingly ..

    Now when I try to use TCODES like SE11, SE16,  SE14 or SA38 .. SE38 .. it throws a ABAP DUMP !! Previous to the restart I was able to use all these t codes and view the details in them.. 😔

    Any idea what should be done now ??
