1820534 - Codepage mismatch between kernel and DBSL shared library

Symptom

You:

  • Start an SAP system
  • Start an instance of an SAP system
  • Run command R3trans -x or command R3trans -d

This fails and the logfiles (developer traces, trans.log) show:

*** ERROR => Codepage mismatch between kernel (ASCII) and DBSL shared
             library '<directory>/db<dbms_type>slib.<extension>' (UNICODE)

or

*** ERROR => Codepage mismatch between kernel (UNICODE) and DBSL shared
             library  '<directory>/db<dbms_type>slib.<extension>'(ASCII)

In brackets (ASCII, UNICODE) the error message tells you which make variants were found for the kernel and the DBSL. In the first error message the kernel is make variant Non-Unicode (=ASCII) and the DBSL is make variant UNICODE - in the second error message it is the other way around.
