Any dependency on SAP PI to upgrade ECC to EH6 or EH7

Hello All,

Good Day.

Need few clarifications on ECC upgrade from EH5 to EH6 or EH7

We are on ECC6 EH5 and hundreds of interfaces(nearly 500+ both outbound and inbound) are connected from ECC to PI711 SP11 and now we have the plan to upgrade our ECC servers to either EH6 or EH7.Do we need to upgrade SAP PI version parallely along with ECC upgrade to support for the runtime components of both SAP ECC and SAP PI?

Appreciate your help in advance.

    Yes. Our PI version is 7.31 PO. And yes, we have ECC EHP6.

    You should be possible to deploy SAP APPL 6.06 ESR content on PI 7.11. The only pre-requisite is that you have the SLD content available (maybe you need to update the SLD content). Then you can import the SWCVs from SLD into ESR. In ESR you then can import the content to the correct SWCV and you will also see those proxies in the correct SWCV on your ECC backend system (in SAP_APPL 6.06 for example).

    The PI version should be independent. The version of the backend systems and the SLD content should be the two relevant parts.

    • Thanks to both of you.Looks like based on your comments it was clear there is no dependency on SAP PI version for the ECC upgrade either to EH6/EH7.

      Wondering when we had a initial discussion of ECC upgrade SAP suggested to upgrade SAP PI version as well since the runtime components(NTW components) of both SAP ECC and SAP PI are interdependent(Still not clear whether it is related to only proxy environment or others like IDOC or RFC).

      Any of you guys had an environment like SAP ECC6(EH6/EH7) with SAP PI711.Please reply to this thread.I will keep you guys posted on this with the info which i received from SAP.

      Very much appreciated

    Hi Pawan,

    Are you using standard ES Content from SAP? Then you maybe need to check for not anymore existing software components and its content (i.e. SAP APPL or SAP BASIS could change based on the EHP you are installing).

    On ECC therefore you maybe do not see your proxies anymore since the SWCV containing the proxies is not existing on the ECC system anymore.

    Best Regards

    • As per the above screen shot 1(ICO object) I can understand your PI version 7.3X it can be either AEX or PO and per screen shot 2 looks like your ECC in on ECC6 EH6.Please correct me if i am wrong.

      Cant i deploy SAP APPL 6.06 ESR content in SAP PI 711 SP 11?Which will support for proxy communication from SAP ECC6 EH6 to SAP PI711.
