Hi Experts,

In my windows system i have in directory D: the usr and ehpi installer, and in directory L: the downloaded files per MOPz.

I will set privileges of FULL CONTROL for everyone in this units, but the error appears again.

I'm logged with SIDadm and I also give FULL CONTROL to SapServiceSID and SIDadm user, between others.

Attached the log of ehpi installer.

Hello Manfred,

if SCANCAR.LOG starts begin writted, but then it stops/disappears, so it might not be an access rights problem.

As Markus said, if you're using NFS mounted paths, please change it to a local path. Or check for intermittent network problems in accessing this location. What is(are) the OS involved, if you're using a remote directory?

Another strong possibility is the usage of anti virus software, if this is Windows OS of course. Note #106267 has more information on it. Please turn it off and repeat the phase. Altough this sounds somewhat dumb, antivirus software can cause many problems in a SAP system - and we have some documented cases like yours.

Please let us know if this helps.

Best Regards,

Tomas Black
