symbolic link error when exporting during heterogeneous system copy

My enviroment is ECC6.0/Oracle 10.2.0.2/SUN Solaris 10 . I'm performing heterogeneous system copy to Oracle 10.2.0.2/AIX 6.1 enviroment.

I've succesfully exported & imported two systems ie DEV & Solutin Manager , but PRD system has an OS problem with symbolic links ie Number of symbolic links encountered during path name traversal exceeds MAXSYMLINKS

I want to export both ABAP & JAVA stack but only the java stack is getting picked.

Below is part of the resultng sapinst.log

Thanks
