Target release SAP_BASIS 740 SP7: Prevent Error in Conversion for Pool/Cluster Tables with CURR and QUAN colums
To avoid this issue, set a break-point in phase PARCONV_UPG or PARCONV_TRANS and manually implement the correction attached in Note 1994569 once the break-point is reached. PARCONV_TRANS is only used in case of a resource-minimized execution of an EHP-installation, in all other execution modes PARCONV_UPG is executed. When the break-point is reached, the system must be unlocked and the manual correction must be performed by a non-DDIC user.
Note: This information is relevant for SUM 1.0 SP11 patch levels 00 to 05. The issue is solved with patch level 06.
———————–< D001330 AUG/18/14 >————————–
Deactivate IOT feature for certain tables
The SUM tool does not support the (Oracle) IOT feature for certain tables because the SAP dictionary does not support the IOT feature. The tables are in DBDIFF exception table for index differences between DB and SAP dictionary. The solution or workaround is to deactivate the IOT feature for such tables before the SUM run. After finishing the SUM run, the IOT feature may be activated again.
Note that if the tables are not present in the dictionary, you do not need to disable the IOT feature.

———————< D035061 AUG/22/2012 >————————–
No “Single System” mode on dual stack systems
On dual stack systems, do not use the preconfiguration mode “Single System”. Use preconfiguration mode “Standard” or “Advanced” instead.
In the case of a Solution Manager system, see also the coment “Solution Manager only: SPS update of ABAP or Java stack independently is supported” in section “I/ Important General Information” -> “a) General”.
———————< D035061 AUG/22/2012 >————————–
Implement note 1720495 before you start transaction SPAU or include the related Support Package
Make sure to implement SAP note 1720495 immediately after a Support Package import, an enhancement package installation, or an upgrade and before making any adjustments in transaction SPAU. Alternatively, you can include the related Support Package for your target release.
Otherwise you can observe after an EHP installation or a Support package import notes with status ‘SAP note <no.> obsolete; de-implementation necessary’ in transaction SPAU, when adjusting the note, and in the Snote. If you proceed in transaction SPAU and adjust this kind of notes, the de-implementation of the note can destroy the code of the support package and can make the system inconsistent.
The SAP note 1720495 corrects the status of the notes and avoids wrong deimplementation of obsolete notes.

Preventing Errors Due to Unicode Length
A structure exists that uses a table type with a structure in at least
one component. When You call DDIF_FIELDINFO_GET, the system sometimes automatically selects the system Unicode length instead of the UCLEN
Unicode length that is specified in DDIF_FIELDINFO_GET. This can lead to an RFC error in phase PREP_INIT/SPAM_CHK_INI during the upgrade or update. To prevent this error, see SAP Note 1029444 and implement the attached correction instruction.

IV/ Problems During the Update Roadmap Steps
This section addresses known problems that cannot be avoided using preventive measures. These problems will only occur under very specific circumstances.
a) General
———————< D038245 AUG/27/2014 >—————————–
Windows: Unknown macro ‘VCREDISTPATH’ in phase EXTRACTKRN_PREDescription:
The following error occurs in phase EXTRACTKRN_PRE on Windows: Unknown macro ‘VCREDISTPATH’, and you see in the log “EXTRKRN.LOG” the entry: PID XXXXX exited with status 3010
Reason:
The actual problem is that the installation of the visual studio library requires a restart of the operating system to complete the installation process.
Solution:
If the new SAP kernel does not work properly, the host has to be restarted. The error should vanish on phase repeat.
———————–< I069357 NOV/11/2013 >————————–
Correcting Issues with Resetting the Upgrade
After you have reset the upgrade and a new SUM run is started, after using the “Cleanup and start afresh” option the buttons “Next” and Back” on the SUM GUI might be inactive. Alternatively, SUM may crash after the reset procedure when selecting ‘Exit’ or ‘Cleanup and start afresh'”.
In this case, proceed as follows:
  • For the ABAP part of the upgrade: Check in the log-file SAPup.log whether the phase SAVELOGS_RESET is mentioned in the end, either as started or skipped.
  • For the Java part of the upgrade: Check in the Java tab of the SUM GUI whether all steps have been completed.
  • Afterwards extract the SUM archive again to a new directory and start the new SUM run.
The above solution is valid when you reset the update by repeatedly choosing the “Back” button on the SUM GUI, or if you choose the Update -> Reset Update option.
——————< I077286 23/OCT/2013 >—————————-
Shadow instance reset during an upgrade
Linux- or Windows-based systems only: If during a switch upgrade you reset the SUM procedure after the SET_ENGINE_SAFE_MODE step has passed, afterwards SUM might stop at step “DELETE_SHADOW_DIR” with the following message:
Error while executing Task with input file FsoTasks.xml and task
DELETE_SHADOW_DIR. Could not finish Delete operation with parameters
file ”, directory ‘<drive:>/usr/sap/<SID>/SUM/sdt/<SID>’. Check whether the
current user has sufficient permission to execute this operation. Cannot
delete file <drive:>\usr\sap\<SID>\SUM\sdt\<SID>. Cannot delete
<drive:>\usr\sap\<SID>\SUM\sdt\<SID> using Windows console operation. 0
To correct this issue, proceed as follows:
    1. Stop the Software Update Manager back-end process. To do this, in the GUI menu bar choose Update -> Stop Update. If required, shut down the SUM GUI as well.
    2. Start the Software Update Manager back-end process and GUI again.
NOTE: After you have started the SUM GUI, do not choose Next.
    3. Reset the SUM update. To do this, in the SUM GUI menu bar choose Update -> Reset Update.
    4. Wait until the dialog for repeating a failed step appears again.
    5. Repeat the step from point of failure.
———————< D026178 AUG/22/2013 >————————–
Phase XPRAS_UPG: Errors during post-handling “RS_AFTER_IMPORT”
In phase XPRAS_UPG, the following error can occur:
2EEPU133 Errors occurred during post-handling “RS_AFTER_IMPORT” for “WWIB” “L”
This after-import method can fail if only SAP_BASIS 740 with SP03 or lower is imported.
To continue the upgrade, see SAP Note 1839664 in which a workaround is described.
To prevent this issue before starting the upgrade, see SAP Note 1894463.
The above procedure is required as temporary data for operating the shadow instance is locked and cannot be removed when the SUM procedure needs to do so.
———————<I067708 23/MAY/2013>—————————
Correcting issues with primary application server instance host name connectivity
During SUM startup, in the console the following error might appear:
‘Unable to detect an abap and/or AS java instance of the SAP system <SID> installed on host <host name>’ .
To correct this error, restart SUM and after the startup command enter the command ‘hostname=<host name>’, where <host name> is the primary application server instance host. For example:
‘STARTUP.BAT hostname=wdmlbmd5799′ .
The error might appear when the host where the instance profile directory is located is not directly accessible due to, for example, a specific customer setup.

Wrong MCOD warning for dual stack systems
In case your system is a dual stack system with an independent schema name for the JAVA part, this schema might be detected as MCOD setup. In consequence of this, a number of warnings and tasks might be recommended by the tool and the guides, that apply to real MCOD systems.
If your dual stack system is the only system on the database, you can ignore related warnings and skip any MCOD related tasks.
———————–< D038245 10/NOV/11 >————————–
UNIX: Prevent Overwriting sapuxuserchk During the Update/Upgrade
In case sapuxuserchk inside instance executable directories gets overwritten during the update/upgrade process, the startup of those instances might fail due to failing authentication for sapcontrol calls executed by SUM.
It must be prevented that the set-user-ID bit for sapuxuserchk inside the instance executable directories is overwritten during kernel switch. To do this, apply the solution described in SAP Note 1650797 after the Checks roadmap step and before downtime start.
———————–< D021970 01/FEB/12 >————————–
Dual-Stack System Update: Phase STARTSAP_PUPG Fails
In special cases during an update (for example, if you perform manual actions after SAP kernel switch), Java shared memory conflicts might be reported in phase STARTSAP_PUPG.

P messages in LONGPOST.LOG due to BW object activation
It may occur that the file LONGPOST.LOG contains P error messages concerning the activation of BW objects, such as:
2PETK754 Error when creating object directory entry “R3TR” “TABL” “/BI0/STCAIFAREA”
A2PERSTCO_UT 003 An error occurred while activating BW object &2″0TCAIFAREA” (<(>&<)>1″IOBJ”)&3″OM”
SUM has added these message in phase XPRAS_AIMMRG during the execution of report RS_TCO_ACTIVATION_XPRA. This report installs basic technical content BW objects, but their activation generates in some cases an error. Check the log file to see what BW objects cause problems during the activation. You can execute the report again manually after the upgrade phase. If there are still problems with some objects, try to activate the affected objects using transaction RSOR.
You can also skip the execution of report RS_TCO_ACTIVATION_XPRA during the upgrade. In this case, make sure that you execute this report manually after the upgrade phase. See SAP Note 1629923 for more information.

Error in Phase MAIN_NEWBAS/SUCCCHK_PROD
Symptom:
You read in the log-file PHASES.LOG the following line:
2EETQ399 Change request ‘SAPK-<vers>INCTSPLGN not removed from buffer
This message indicates, that the import of a transport request of the CTS Plug-In could not performed.
Reason known to date:
The system could not create primary indices for tables, if an object with the same name already exists. To solve this issue, drop the tables CL_CTS_REQUEST_REMOTE~~OLD and CTS_REQ_OVERLAPS~~OLD directly in the database.
Solution:
1. Find out the cause of the import error and resolve it.
2. Start the report /CTSPLUG/CTS_ACTIVATION and set the parameter FORCEACT=’X’. This report starts the import again.
3. Afterwards, check whether the import was successful and the import queue is empty now. If the problem continues to exist, contact the SAP Support.
4. If the report has run successfully, repeat the phase
MAIN_NEWBAS/SUCCCHK_PROD in the Software Update Manager to continue the upgrade

tp 212 error in MAIN_NEWBAS/TABIM_UPG: left-over semaphore
The SUM stops during phase TABIM_UPG in module MAIN_NEWBAS with the following error message:
Calling <path to> tp.exe failed with return code 212, check <path to> SAPup.ECO for details.
This stop can occur when tp does not finish correctly due to one or more semaphores that haven’t been removed correctly after the end of r3trans. In general, it can happen in each phase where tp is started that semaphores are
left over. Note that the semaphores have to be kept if the tp or R3trans process of them still exists.
If you encounter the error, use the operating system first to check whether the corresponding tp is still active, for example, whether the process still exists. For more information about semaphores in tp and how to solve the problem, see SAP Note 12746.

IBM Databases: Error in Phase DEPLOY_ONLINE_DEPL
The following error can occur in the DEPLOY_ONLINE_DEPL phase:
“Table WCR_USERSTAT Conversion currently not possible.”
For the solution, see SAP Note 1156313.
———————< I031257 NOV/19/08 >—————————-
Phase DEPLOY_ONLINE_DEPL: Timeout During AS Java Restart
On slow/loaded systems, the DEPLOY_ONLINE_DEPL phase might fail due to a timeout during AS Java restart. This restart can take several hours as during this time portal applications are updated. If this restart takes longer than expected (3h), the Software Update Manager stops with an error.
To complete the enhancement package installation, wait for the AS Java restart in SAFE mode to finish and then resume SUM. If the system is still in SAFE mode after the update process completes, apply SAP Note 1267123.

V/ Problems After the Update
This section addresses known problems that cannot be avoided using preventive measures. These problems will only occur under specific circumstances.
a) General
——————————–< D057755 28/FEB/14>————————————-
Correcting issues with the SAP MC applet digital signature
If you open the SAP Management Console (SAP MC) by using its web interface after a SUM update procedure has been completed, a warning about the digital signature of the applet archives may appear. The reason for this is that these archives are self-signed. To correct this, acquire the archives relevant for your kernel as follows:
  1. Go to the SAP Software Distribution Center at: http://service.sap.com/swdc and logon with your SAP Service Marketplace ID.
  2. In the navigation bar, choose SAP Software Download Center -> Support Packages and Patches  ->  Browse our Download Catalog ->  Additional Components -> SAP Kernel  -> SAP KERNEL <OS> -> SAP KERNEL <Release>  -> Database independent.
  3. Select the appropriate sapmc_<version>.sararchive from the “Download” tab.
Note: Make sure that the SAPCAR tool is available in the host where you want to update the SAP Management Console. For more information about acquiring and using the SAPCAR tool, see SAP Note 212876.
4. Open a command prompt or PowerShell and extract the sapmc_<version>.sar archive to a local directory by executing the following command:
–          for Windows:  SAPCAR.exe –xvf sapmc_<version>.sar
–          For UNIX and IBM-i:  ./SAPCAR -xvf sapmc_<version>.sar
5. Replace the existing sapmc directory with the sapmc directory that was extracted during the previous step.
For more information about installing and updating the SAP MC, see SAP Note 1014480.
b) ABAP
———————< D035956 SEP/30/2014 >————————
Detect orphaned implementations of former classic BAdI definitions
Relevant for upgrades from a source release lower than SAP_BASIS 700 to target release SAP_BASIS 700 or higher:
After an upgrade, implementations of classic BAdIs are no longer executed since the corresponding BAdI definitions do no longer exist. To detect such orphaned implementations, implement SAP Note 2046770 and execute the report FIND_ORPHANED_BADI_IMPLS. If the report finds orphaned BAdI implementations, see the SAP Note 2046770 for more details.
———————< D023536 APR/22/2014 >————————
SAP_BASIS 740 SP4: Missing Views in the database
After an update to SAP_BASIS 740 SP4, the views V_DSH_ASSIGNED and V_DSH_TF_DETAIL are missing in the database. These views were delivered accidentally and cannot be created on a system based on SAP_BASIS 740 SP4. You can ignore this inconsistency as the views are not needed by the system. This issue will be solved with SUM version 1.0 SP12.
———————< D024828 FEB/25/2014 >————————
Ignorable short dumps LOAD_NOT_FOUND_AFTER_GEN in Phase MAIN_NEWBAS/XPRAS_AIMMRG
After the upgrade you might find short dumps LOAD_NOT_FOUND_AFTER_GEN that happenend (from a time perspective) during phase MAIN_NEWBAS/XPRAS_AIMMRG if your system was upgraded to Kernel Version 7.41 PL 23 or lower.
You can ignore these short dumps. The problem is fixed with Kernel 7.41 PL 24.
———————< D028310 DEC/16/2013 >————————
Error: DDIC_ILLEGAL_KEY_COMP_NAME
After an upgrade or update, you encounter the following error message:
DDIC_ILLEGAL_KEY_COMP_NAME
You can ignore this error.
———————< D057512 DEC/12/2013 >————————
Warnings and messages in work process trace filesAfter a successful update or upgrade using near-zero downtime maintenance (nZDM/SUM) capability of SUM, you see in the trace files of the work processes (dev_w*) warnings similar to the following:
C head_p=ffff80ffbfffa710: dbsl err=103=DBSL_ERR_DBOBJECT_UNKNOWN ->
dbds err=512=DS_DBOBJECTUNKNOWN, dbdsoci.c:962
C *** ERROR => ^^ Ds_exec_imm() -> err=512=DS_DBOBJECTUNKNOWN
[dbdsoci.c 976]
You can ignore these warnings. They are caused by the automatic deletion of temporary objects that were used in the shadow system only.
——————-< D047912 OCT/21/2012 >————————–
Message: DDIC deletes RFC destination SAP_UPGRADE_SHADOW_SYSTEM
After an successful upgrade or update, you see in the system log using
transaction SM21 the error message:
DDIC deletes RFC destination SAP_UPGRADE_SHADOW_SYSTEM
with the following details: A destination has been deleted in SM59,
destination maintenance of RFC. Problems can occur if this destination
is still used in existing ABAP programs.
You can ignore this error message.
——————-< D035061 03/Apr/2013 >————————–
SAP_BASIS 731 SP05 to 740: Some tables remain on database
After an update from SAP_BASIS 731 SP05 or higher to SAP_BASIS 740, the tables DDREPLIAPPLI and DDREPLIAPPLIT remain on the database. You can remove these tables using transaction SE14 or database commands.
——————-< D033123 17/Nov/2012 >————————–
LONGPOST.LOG: Error message GI747
SUM has added in phase XPRAS_UPG the error message GI747 (Error during creation ofstructure GLU1″RECID””TEXT4″”JV_RECIND”) to the LONGPOST.LOG file. See SAP note 1779102 and check, if this note solves the problem.
——————< Update D035061 10/JUL/2013 >———————-
———————–< D026178 OCT/10/10 >————————–
Ignorable P messages in LONGPOST.LOG
Problem: SUM has added in phase ACT_UPG the following message to the LONGPOST.LOG file:
4PDDH176 Parameter list of append search help “RDM_WKBK” differs from appending one.
In phase CHK_POSTUP, you will be prompted as a result to check that message.
Solution: You can ignore this P message. It was written during ACT_UPG, but no followup action is required.
—————< Update D023536 16/JUL/2013 >———————–
——————-< D053561 10/FEB/2012 >————————–
LONGPOST.LOG: Tables without DDIC reference or not existing in DDIC
After an upgrade or update, the file LONGPOST.LOG contains lines that indicate that a table has no DDIC reference. It can be either the following message:
1PEPU203X > Messages extracted from log file “RDDNTPUR.<SID>”
<3PETG447 Table and runtime object “NAVERS2″ exist without DDIC reference (“Transp. table”)
or a message such as
4 ETG003 Table “NCVERS2″ does not exist in the ABAP Dictionary
The following tables can be be affected from this error message:
/1SAP1/CCE_RUN01
CRR_CONFDT
CRR4TABLES
CRRPARAMETERS
CRRRTI
CRRRTIT
CRRSCENARIOS
CRRTASKHIST
CRRTASKINFO
CRRTCONFID
NAVERS2
NCVERS2
PATALLOWED
SUBST_SLANA_HDR
SUBST_SLANA_POS
Note: We know of the list above, and the mentioned tables can safely be deleted in the database. If there are additional tables mentioned in the LONGPOST.LOG, please check the relevance for your system before you remove them.
Proceed as follows to solve this issue:
    1. Choose transaction SE11 to display the mentioned tables
    2. If the tables don’t exist in the transaction, you can remove the tables from the database.
    3. In addition, you delete the runtime objects that belong to these tables:
    a) Choose transaction SE37.
    b) Check if the function module DD_SHOW_NAMETAB contains runtime objects that belong to these tables.
    c) Delete the runtime objects of the tables using the function module DD_NAMETAB_DELETE.
The following tables might appear in upgrades from 702 to 730 and can safely be removed in this case. See SAP Note 824971 for more information.
GENSETM
RSJOBTABM
SERVTYPEM
If they appear in other updates, please contact the SAP support and report an incident under component BC-UPG-TLS-TLA.
c) Java

Changing the start profile
Include the following entry in your start profile:
  • Unix:
DIR_LIBRARY = $(DIR_LIBRARY)
PATH = $(DIR_EXECUTABLE):%(PATH)
  • Windows:
PATH = $(DIR_EXECUTABLE);%(PATH)
This prevents a problem with the jmon.dll file.
