Hi guys

While performing a SAP BW System Upgrade and Database Migration to HANA using DMO for SUM SP14, Im facing the following issue.

It seems folder SUM\abap\exe_2nd was not created, therefore R3trans could not be found


...started at 20151027121353

..finished at 20151027121353 with status ABORTED.

# Error message set: 'Executable 'R3trans' in 'K:\SUM\abap\exe_2nd' does not exist'

...begin dialog at 20151027121356.

In the XML file both kernels were included (HDB and SQL)


<caption>SAP KERNEL 7.42 64-BIT UNICODE</caption>







<caption>SP200 for SAP KERNEL 7.42 64-BIT UNICODE</caption>







-<os-set os="LINUX_X64">

-<db-set db="DBINDEP">

<archive-name os="LINUX_X64" patch-level="200" db="DBINDEP">SAPEXE_200-20012215.SAR</archive-name>


-<db-set db="HDB">

<archive-name os="LINUX_X64" patch-level="200" db="HDB">SAPEXEDB_200-20012231.SAR</archive-name>



-<os-set os="NT_X64">

-<db-set db="DBINDEP">

<archive-name os="NT_X64" patch-level="200" db="DBINDEP">SAPEXE_200-20012222.SAR</archive-name>


-<db-set db="MSS">

<archive-name os="NT_X64" patch-level="200" db="MSS">SAPEXEDB_200-20012221.SAR</archive-name>







Anyone does not if this is a SUM error or understand why the exe_2nd folder was not created?




It was an issue selecting target database kernel

I have selected a kernel for Linux / HANA DB

After selecting a proper kernel for Windows 2012 / HANADB, it passed without error.
