Problem with the '...mount point containing Export DVD for product NW'


Our goal is to install from scratch SAP NetWeaver 7.3 BW, EhP1, on IBM Power System i server, IBM i V7R1.

We successfully finished the installation of SAP NetWeaver 7.3, using SAP Software Provisioning Manager 1.0

Next, we used the Solution Manager Maintenance Optimizer to do the necessary calculations for the EhP1 update task, and we did download the relevant content added to the download basket.

During the EhP1 update task - using SAP Software Update Manager (SUM) 1.0 SP06 - we got stuck in step 52 : Extract, at the screen asking for :


'Enter at least the mount point containing Export DVD for product NW'

We tried all possible entries (directories), either from the ones used in the installation at the very beginning, or from the ones to which we did copy the DVDs sent to us by SAP, related to EhP1 update,  but with no success.

Could someone please explain, what exactly is meant by : '...mount point containing Export DVD for product NW' ?

Also, shouldn't the items resulting from the calculations done by Solution Manager Maintenance Optimizer, be sufficient to do the EhP1 update ?

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
