Migmon: Lock file ExportMonitor.lck is locked during export

Currently Being Moderated



I am trying to export my DB since I will move it to another system. I have done that before (2008) but not with Migration Monitor since I could not get it to work. At that time I could choose R3load-based method and everything went fine.


This time I don't have that option so I must try to fix my problem.


I have HP-UX 11.23 running on IA64.


If I try to run ./export_monitor.sh (or ./sapinst and skip the table splitting function) I get this result:


+ /opt/java1.4/bin/java -showversion -Xmx1024m -cp 
./.:./migmon.jar:./activation.jar:./mail.jar com.sap.inst.lib.app.
SecureStartup -Xmx1024m com.sap.inst.migmon.exp.
ExportMonitor -dbType ORA
java version ""
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition 
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM 
(build 1.4.2 IA64, mixed mode)

Another instance of application is already running.
Lock file 'ExportMonitor.lck' is locked by other process.


If I use the sapinst and set it to split the files I get "Lock file 'PackageSplitter.lck' is locked by other process.".


But the file is NOT used by another process!


I use root and yes the users SIDadm and oraSID are in the group sapinst and yes I have set the permissions to 777 and yes the umask is 022 and yes I have downloaded the latest migmon and decompressed it to these locations (I picked all three just in case):






If you smart people know how to fix this I would be very happy and also impressed. I have no idea what to do and my message to SAP is still not answered...
