In the document for installing the GUI under Netweaver 7.1 sp14 is this little snippet:
On the server, verify that the file exists in the location
(e.g. C:usrsapF21JC30j2eeclusterserver0binextSQL2005). Sometimes an empty file is
created. If this is the case, copy the file manually into the location then restart the server.
Sometimes? I have never had a case where it did anything but place an empty file perhaps others have a different experience. Whenever you see something like this it just shows how pressed for time developers are. No time to fix this little bug, just release. For the last three years, most IT is under staffed and fearful of asking for the money they need to get their job done. I don’t envy them.
