Upgrading from SP13 to EHP7. SUM indicates that we have to be at SP14 - help!

Hi gurus,

Before the ECC upgrade, we confirmed there were no restrictions going from SP13 to EHP7.  When trying to do the upgrade, there is a restriction with their Software Upgrade Manager (SUM) that indicates we need to be at SP14 - but it's a bit too late we're in the middle of the upgrade.

Can anyone tell us why there is a restriction and some alternatives to bypass that restriction please?

Thank you

Tansu

    Hello Tansu,

    We had the same problem, and when we reported the error, SAP created the note 1942969.

    After some conversation, they applied the fix by themselves on our first upgrade test cycle.

    On the second upgrade run we created the table manualy before starting the SUM, and we didn't had the error.

    Regards,

      Hello Surendra,

      We used SUM SP9 pl0

      But we had the error in SHADOW_IMPORT_INC.

      We never had any error regarding sp requirments.

      SAP probably included that new check in subsequent releases.

      Regards,

    Hello Tansu,

    You will need to update the netweaver stack to at least Netweaver 7.0 SPS14 before you could start the upgrade to EHP7 . If not you might face the issues with some important tables as missing because they were delievered with SPS14 .

    1942969 - table SFW_BF_SW does not exist on database

    Regards,

      Hi Gaurav,  (Responding on behalf of Tansu)

      This error is happening during SUMCHK (during extraction phase).
