Another day another play….. at this moment i’m making an update to SAP ERP 6.0 SPS 22 but during downtime in step 5.6 (execution) phase MAIN_NEWBAS/XPRAS_AIMMRG receive a series of errors that in no way to proceed with SUM, the errors are type:

As always, the times are short and after defeat another problems during weekend and are very close to goal this can’t be happen, I’m scrub, i think!
Search in forums, Google, sap notes and nothing, ok, i’m really scrub, next and paining step, send message to SAP support, during the process for create a new message SAP first “ask you” if you have revised notes and playing with SAP Knowledge Base i found the note 1664235 (Investigating errors in XPRAS phase) and after read and follow the “resolution”, new errors are displayed, now and are a lot of dumps, all with common error:
The following syntax error occurred in program
"CL_SHM_AREA===================CP " in include
"CL_SHM_AREA===================CM00V " in
"The kernel module "AB_SHMKMPROPAGATEAREA" is not registered for the im"
"plementation of method "_PROPAGATE_AREA" of class "CL_SHM_AREA"."
OK, let’s find a solution…… ok there is neither in Google or SAP notes but the word “kernel” shines for me, let’s make a try, KERNEL DOWNGRADE!!!!
My instance have the last version in branch 7.x (7.38), i downloaded the kernel 7.20 (i consider it more stable than others), decompress, copy and “startsap r3” ….
Instance on host dg1 started, test a SAPlogon connection, all ok
Click in button next on SUM…. after a few minutes, SUM
Now i’m making the last backup and after finish this post i will try to sleep a little.
