[solved] sapinst on AIX5.3 dumps: child … existed with signal 1

Let’s start with the solution, the issue is described below 😉

Solution:

Finally I figured out the reason was the Java installation. The issue occurs with Java1.4.2_10. Upgraded to Java1.4.2_12 (64 Bit) and switched $PATH variable.

Now system copy works fine 😉

Issue:

Trying to do a system copy of a SAP ERP 2005 running on an AIX 5.3. sapinst runs as user root on the server, ports 21200 and 21212 are forwarded using a SSH tunnel. The remote GUI runs on a Windows I386. Starting the remote GUI results in login and connect. After selecting the desired system copy option from the application menu the sapinst dumps on server side.

Some env variables and functions to set before starting system copy.

[code]


umask 022
export TEMP=/var/sapinst_temp/
export ORACLE_HOME=/oracle//102_64
export LIBPATH=/oracle//102_64/lib:/sapmnt//exe:/usr/sap//SYS/exe/run
export ORACLE_SID=
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java14_64/
export PATH=/usr/java14_64/bin:$PATH
ulimit -d unlimited

[/code]
The associated ‘dev_selfex.out’ contains the following line at the end of the file:

[code]
