Dear All,


I am stuck in between the migration process of ECC 6.0 EHP5 from Oracle to MS SQL 2008.

Stuck at the ABAP import phase and asking for migration key...


" (VK) ERROR: invalid migration key"


Tried the Migration key provided in SAP Notes 970518  <REMOVED_BY_MODERATOR>  Also generated the migration key from SAP market place.. still no success.


Checked the test_MIGKEY.log. Contents are below:


D:\usr\sap\IN5\SYS\exe\uc\NTAMD64\R3load.exe: START OF LOG: 20110614140513

Very strabge error : I am using WIndows OS and the R3load gives this error :- "DB2 z/OS: R3load does not recognize dbs_db2_sap_stosid (note 1583483)". The note says to use the patch 88 of R3load.


I have latest R3load version available on the market place for MS SQL.


R3load -v output is below:
