J2EE stack install -> ctrun error???

Hello all,

I have done several installations and have never come across an error like this one :-|

The only difference in this case is that I specified to install the J2EE stack only and not the ABAP stack (when installing all of the components only needed the J2EE stack).

When doing the installation, I get an error of :

ERROR: can't change to central Executable-Dir /usr/sap/KDP/SYS/exe/ctrun (No such file or directory)

I saw a /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/exe/run directory but not a /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/exe/ctrun directory

I have also seen that the "ctrun" directory seems to be associated with dialog instances (when doing note searches, I have seen this). I have specified that this J2EE server be a central - and not dialog - instance.

Question 1 - Is it possible to have a central system with a J2EE stack only? Or, is the requirement that the central system must have both the J2EE and ABAP stacks?

Any help, hints or advice is greatly desired. Of course, points will be awarded.
