File ‘SIGNATURE.SMF’ cannot be found in the SAP HANA Database installation kit

Error:

File ‘SIGNATURE.SMF’ cannot be found in the SAP HANA Database installation kit. You can ignore this error and continue with the execution by passing the ignore option ‘check_signature_file’ to hdblcm. See SAP note 2078425, section ‘How to prepare SAP HANA packages for installation or update’ for instructions how to prepare packages for update or implications of ignoring this error.

 

 

signature.smf

 




Solution:

I got this error when I am trying to upgrade revision of our HANA Database.  When I extract Revision Patch using sapcar -xvf command it was not creating SIGNATURE.SMF file.  So I extracted IMDB.SAR file using below command.

sapcar -xvf IMDB_SERVER100_102_6-10009569.SAR -manifest SIGNATURE.SMF

 

Now I created SIGNATURE.SMF file in /tmpsoft folder. Now I copied signature.smf to /SAP_HANA_DATABASE folder and resumed the upgrade.
