Download materials for an unsupported SAP version Enterprise 4.7

Hi Experts,

I have a problem with copying an old SAP version.

The release is a SAP Enterprise 4.7. I have to make a system copy about this system with mssql 2000. Everything is 32bit (OS, SAP and the DB too).

I read the note 967124 - 6.20/6.40 Patch Collection Installation: Windows. This note mention the installation master (51043575). So I downloaded this DVD for IA32 with the following label:

6.20/6.40 based products

Installation Master

Number 51043575

The note 967124 said that:


Use the SAP NetWeaver 04 SR 1 Kernel DVD for your database for the installation, except for Informix 10. For Informix 10, you must use the Informix 10.00 DVD.

Regarding to this info I downloaded the Kernel DVD with te following label:


Support Release 1

SAP Kernel 6.40_EX2

Win Server on IA32 32bit and IA64 64bit

Windows Server on x64 64bit

Linux on_x86_64 64bit

Number 51033191

I installed the MSSQL 2000 SP4 32bit on the server, then I run the sapinst system copy for 4.7 enterprise, mssql, non-unicode options.

When the installer asks the Kernel DVD, I got the following error message:

You entered: D:\install\SAP\NW_04_640_EX2_Kernel_WIN__LNX_X86\K_640_EX2_NI_WINDOWS_I386

Found the label SAP:AKK:640:KERNEL:SAP Kernel 640_EX2:WINDOWS_I386:CD51030xxx but need the label MSSQL:AKK:6.40:KERNEL:*:I386

Where can I found this DVD? Can I ask it from SAP via a new incident message?

Thank you for your help and tips!

    Hello Janos,

    you can try to request DVD from SAP on the component XX-SER-SWFL-SHIP.

    • Hello Janos,

      as per info from my colleagues materials for releases which are out of maintenance are removed from the service market place. But these materials can be requested from SAP on demand.
