Process chain step not started
I have a process chain with quite a lot of steps.
Usually, everything runs fine. But this morning, one of the step runs fine (technical and overall status in green in the job log) but the next process has never started... The link between the 2 steps was with dotted green.
I didn't find any error message anywere. I checked in ST22, no dump. No message either in SM21.
Does somebody have any idea of what I could check or what could be the reason of this issue ?
Thanks in adavance for your help.

7.0 Support Package 18: Process chains - DTP confirmations

One of the following errors occurs:
1. Data transfer processes (DTPs) do not report their status to the calling process chain. The chain does not continue running even though the status of the DTP is green.
2. Repaired DTP requests report their status to the process chain twice. This leads to a short dump.

The processing of a process chain hangs after a data transfer process (DTP) request even though it has the status 'Green'. At the same time, another process locks the process chain.
