Installation Requirements for DB2 10.5 on Solman 7.1 SPS7

Hi,

I'm going to install DB2 10.5 on our Solman 7.1 SPS7 instance, but SAP note#1851853 mentions that SAP Netweaver 7.02 SP12 is required. I'm currently at Netweaver 7.02 SP11 (part of Solman 7.1 SPS7).

How should I proceed to get Netweaver 7.02 SP12?

Should I install the full SPS for Solman 7.1 or only update the Netweaver 7.02 components to SP12? 

Any recommendations or best practice?

Thanks

Stephane

    Hi Stephane

    Any reason why you only choosing SPS07,though we have the latest.

    For Solution Manager it is recommended to go with full SPS, instead of only updating only a particular component.

    Because most of the components are interdependent and  Best practice is to choose full SPS07 directly.

    one of the Pre-requisite for DB2 10.5- you kernel should be on 721_EXT

    Kind Regards,

      Hi Phaneendra,

      Solman 7.1 SPS7 is what I have currently installed on the system, which includes Netweaver 7.02 SP11.

      DB2 10.5 requires Netweaver 7.02 SP12, so based on what you're saying I should update Solman to the latest SPS and not simply update the Netweaver components?!

    Hi Stephane,

    you should choose SPS10 or SPS11. SPS10 is a so called function pack with new functions and not only a "normal" SP stack.

    Kind regards,
    Jens
