Upgrade from ERP 6.0 to ERP 6.0 EhP7

Hi all,

I'm currently planning the implementation of a upgrade to EhP7 from a ERP 6.0

Analyzing the documentation I have some information that is contradictory, since in all places I have the confirmation I can do the Enhancement package installation directly (in a single step), but there is a single note that puzzles me:

“If your source system is on ERP 6.0, the minimum NW SP level should be SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SPS14 for you to trigger an upgrade to EHP7.”

Now my question is, is this upgrade done in the shadow instance automatically by SUM, meaning that I don’t need to pre-install the SPs before the upgrade, or I need to do it before?

Thanks for your help,

Rui Machado

    You need to primarily make sure that the source system Kernel, OS and DB are compatible for EHP7 implementation.

    Check PAM for that.

    I suggest you to create a stack file for the upgrade using the Solution Manager Maintenance Optimizer as this will take care of all the dependencies.

    Also read these SAP notes.

    I suggest you to consider reading the related notes mentioned at the bottom of the SAP notes

    You don't have to install the support packages in the shadow instance, this is done by SUM.
