EHP4 installation - Error in phase STOP_SHDI_LAST

Hi All,

I have a unique problem here and am hoping someone can help. When installation EHP4 SPS03 onto our ERP 6.0 system (HP-UX 11.31/MaxDB and ERP 6.0 SPS15), I get an error in phase STOP_SHDI_LAST. Basically the shadow system cannot be stopped.

Error message in log SAPehpi.ECO:

EXECUTING /usr/sap/eh4/EHPI/abap/bin/stopsap_shd (stopsap_shd) -t R3 -i DVEBMGS0

1 -r /usr/sap/eh4/EHPI/abap -u SAPQA2SHD

See /home/qa2adm/stopsap_DVEBMGS01.log for details

Error messsge in stopsap_DVEBMGS01.log:

I basically cannot stop the shadow instance unless I kill off everyone shadow process manually. I have checked oss notes 525677 and 877795 but there anre no solutions to this problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Stefan,

This is gud news.

P.S: Also, after this phase your shadow instance will not be there.
