You start the installation without specifying a startup file via SAPINST_CONTROL_URL

Case

You are installing a SAP System and cancelled it at any point

You receive following message regarding control.xml file and you are asked to set it by SAPINST_CONTROL_URL

You start the installation without specifying a startup file via SAPINST_CONTROL_URL in the directory /tmp/sapinst_exe.xxxxxxxx. The framework asumes that control.xml or product.catalog has to be used but there exist now such files.If there exist a installation with a different startup filename please specify that filename via SAPINST_CONTROL_URL.

Solution

Find out your installation directory where for example keydb.xml resides. It may be :

/tmp/sapinst_instdir/NW740SR1/DB6/INSTALL/STD

Copy sapinst (from directory which you have executed the installation) into

/tmp/sapinst_instdir/NW740SR1/DB6/INSTALL/STD

and start sapinst from there as follows

/tmp/sapinst_instdir/NW740SR1/DB6/INSTALL/STD/sapinst
