file in /usr/sap/<SID>/<Instance no.>/work directory deleted

Dear Guru's

By mistake we have deleted all the files from the /usr/sap/<SID>/<Instance No.>/work directory .We do not have any backup of this directory

Can anyone help me with the following queries

1.) What will be the impact .

2.) What are the files in the work directory

3.) What is needed to be done ...




Hi Anthony,

1- If the instance was running, the WP should have canceled. If it was stopped, the only problem deleting .../work/ contents is the lose of historical (maybe unnecessary) WP logs.

2- At work dir, there are temporal, trace and log files.

3- If the instance is now stopped, just start it and the content of the work directory will be created again.

Best Regards,

JC Llanes.
