SWPM Unattended can't find the packages

0 Kudos


I'am trying to install Diagnostic-Agent in unattended mode. I followed note 950619 and created the nessecary files. But now when I try to install it in unattenden mode it stops with an Error:

WARNING 2017-05-08 09:03:59.889 (root/sapinst) (startInstallation) id=nw.archivehandling.furtherArchivesRequired The following archives are also required, otherwise you cannot continue: "SAPEXE.SAR, part of the Kernel", "SAPHOSTAGENT.SAR, part of the Kernel", "SAPJVM6.SAR, part of the Kernel" and "SAPDIAGNOSTICSAGENT.SAR, part of the Kernel"

I specified the path to this files in die


If I select this path in Gui-Mode everything is fine and installation is no problem.

Maybe the is not accepted ? All created files are in the SWPM directory. And SWPM is started with the parameters.

Anyone an idea ?

As mentioned in the note 2230669, check if the parameter archives.downloadBasket parameter is set in the inifile.params

archives.downloadBasket = <path where the packages are stored>

We had the same problem because of a to old file inifile.params. You have to renew this file with the SWPM you want to use for unattended install how is it described in

The command line argument to create a new file inifile.params is SAPINST_STOP_AFTER_DIALOG_PHASE=true. Our sapinst command was:


The file inifile.params is stored in the folder where you start your sapinst call.
