PI 71 Installation Error - TypeError: fstream has no properties.


Did you encounter a similar problem during your PI 71 Installation?

The installation program is generating an error during the Database Instance installation. The process stops at step 17 during a database update configuration task.

The following is recorded in the sapinst.log file:

ERROR 2008-09-17 14:19:58.654

And the corresponding code in the sapinst_dev.log file:

22066: var fstream = fmgt.getNode(fileDB2NODES).getFileStream("READ");

22067: while (!fstream.eof()) {

22068: if (installer.onWindows()) {

The "fstream" function seems to break the program. This may be an OS problem but I was not able to find anything related either on the IBM website or on SAP Service.

I am running AIX 5.3 TL6.
