Homogeneous system copy - CONTROL.SQL file not found

Dear SAP gurus,

I'm in the process of a homogeneous system copy (Oracle Specific). I am

in the Import phase (Backup/Restore database step) and sapinst is stopped

with the following error:

ERROR. File not found:CONTROL.SQL.

In the System Copoy Guide "System copy for SAP Systems Based on SAP

Netweaver 7.0 SR3 ABAP+Java" stands that CONTROL.SQL should be placed

from source <INSTDIR> to target <SAPINST_INSTDIR>.

I put CONTROL.SQL in <SAPINST_INSTDIR> of my target system but sapinst is stopping there with ERROR. File not found:CONTROL.SQL..

Anyone has experience the same issue?

Thanks in advance, Marc

Please make sure that control.sql file should be present in installation directory like <path>/sapinst_instdir/<ABAP/Java>/.....

not in /tmp/sapinst_instdir. Also installation directory should have 777 permission.
