Problem during ERP 6.0 system copy
We are attempting to use the System Copy option (under Software Life-Cycle Options) to install a target system in a distributed system landscape (separate central and DB servers). During the central instance installation phase, during the entry of the parameters, there is a prompt to enter the path to the profile directory. We enter that parameter correctly, and then the installation asks for the master password. Once the master password has been entered, we receive an error message indicating that it was not possible to connect to the message server (wapsmod.ms.MsAttachFailed). This seems very odd, because we are only entering the installation parameters, we have not yet started the central instance installation processing, so why is an an attempt being made to attach to the message server being made?
