Recently we have done a Solman 7.0 EHP 1 to Solman 7.1 Upgrade.
Source Details: – Windows 2003, Oracle 126.96.36.199 & Solman 7 EHP1 ST28
Target Details: – Windows 2003, Oracle 188.8.131.52 & Solman 7.1 SPS 5
Before Upgrade to Solman 7.1, it’s always recommended that you go through all the prerequisite, upgrade guide, upgrade notes, sizing document & install & upgrade planner.
Solman 7.1 requires lot of pre – upgrade steps to be completed before upgrade, as it’s require more RAM, Page file & also requires SAP parameters value updates etc.
During Pre upgrade steps we have stuck in one phase as RCA is not working in Solman_Workcenter. To reactivate RCA we need to update the ABAP+JAVA support packages to latest level. We calculated the STACK.XML of ABAP+JAVA support packs & upgrade our Solman 7.0 EHP1 to ST 28 level. Also update the Java support packs through JSPM.
I can’t write the whole upgrade process & technical activity in this post. if you require any help or stuck in any phase during upgrade, you can contact me.
Solman Upgrade requires SOLMANUP tool for upgrade & it requires below space in your file system.
