    Hi Veerra,

    1) SAP kernel 720 does not work on Windows 2003.

    2) Kernel upgrade on IDES is same like on other SAP systems on Windows.

    Make a copy of existing kernel directory

    download the kernel files and extract it

    stop SAP system

    overwrite existing kernel directory with new kernel files

    start sap system.

    check new kernel in SM51 - > release notes

    Hope this helps.
