 DbSlExecute: rc = 99
  (SQL error 2216)
  error message returned by DbSl:
ORA-02216: tablespace name expected

This error is thrown in the SWPM error dialog, listed in the file 'import_monitor.log' where you can also see the respective name of the package which fails.
As an example, we take 'SAPSSEXC.LOG' which can also be found inside 'sapinst_instdir' or in the export dump directory.
