kernel version required for Personas 3.0

Hi,


We are in the Personas 3.0 ramp-up and trying to install the software in our sandbox. In the page describing the product (SWDC->Ramp-up releases->Installation and Upgrade->SAP SCREEN PERSONAS 3.0), the required kernel version is stated as 742 available as of August 15.


However, we don't see that kernel version available as of today. Is there a patch level on 741 that will let us install Personas 3.0? I've looked at note 1825215 that indicates this might be possible but it isn't clearly stated. I opened an SAP SR on this question but have not yet received a response. If there is anyone who has installed the ramp-up and knows what kernel version works, your advice would be greatly appreciated.


Best regards,

Rob

    Hi Rob,

    You need kernel 7.42. This is required to gain access to the SAP Screen Personas functionality. You should have received special instructions on how to download the kernel (it is not publically available yet) when you were accepted into the ramp-up program.

    Regards,

    Peter

      Hi Sushant,

      I am trying to access the note now and it still isn't released. We are in the ramp-up program as well and haven't recieved any information about where to download kernel 7.42.

      Everything else is set up, but we can only access the "old" funcionality in the HTML version of screen personas (theme, hide button, renaming etc.) no scripting and so on.

    I implemented all the current notes, but still facing an issue about:

    "Invalid GUI input data: display - window dimension conflict"

    Already implemented note 2016640, but not sure where to set the parameters that are created.

    Do I need to set these in the Webgui GUI Configuration? or?

    Thx!

    Regards,

    Hans

    Hey Robert, Peter,

    today I received a download link for SAP kernel 742 from SAP support as reply to my CSN message. According to the feedback of the support employee, it should be available in the software download page /swdc any day.

    I've already installed it and personas 3.0 is up and running. There seem to be some issues with IE11, I'll have to check this.

    Unfortunately you cannot use a personas 3.0 frontend system and create flavors for a backend system (with lower kernel) any more...

    Regards

    Wolfgang

    Hey Robert, Sushant,

    we are also in the Ramp Up Programm. The Kernel is also not available in /SWDC, i hope that will change in some days.

    We are also testing SAP HANA on the same system. Are there any kown specials/problems which we should notice ?

    best regards

    Martin

    • From the Personas section in Ramp-up on SWDC, follow the "Support Packages and Patches" link and then "Required components of other Product Versions". The 7.42 kernel is listed there.

    When running the Personas Health check, we still have an issue about the SAP Kernel.

    Kernel release 742: OK

    Kernel patch level 18: NOK

    Any suggestions?

    Thx!

    • That's probably a glitch in the health check tool. Pl18 should be fine. Is there an OSS note with a personas update that you haven't applied yet? That might fix it...

    Hi,

    We've all notes implemented, but the issue remains...

    Also another issue occurs

    We already installed Personas 2.0 on our system.

    Now, we installed Personas 3.0, so we actually have 2 different Personas running.

    When we run our Health check, we see following info in this program:

    PERSOS    Level    0002

    PERSOS    Package    SAPK-20002INPERSOS

    Don't we need to see Personas 3.0 here?

    Also, all roles & authorisations are applied, but we only the the WEBGUI in html5, no personas features here...

    Regards,

    Hans

    • Are you running the Personas 2 health check or the Personas 3 health check? The admin transactions are different! I wouldn't be surprised to see the v2 health check complain about the 7.42 kernel. It does work OK, though. v2 and v3 will live happily alongside each other...

    Hi Sushant,

    Thx!

    The Health check tool seems to be OK now!

    Still looking for my 'P' button in Personas 3. Doesn't seems to appear in my browser.

    • Try to run Personas 3.0 in a different browser. I'd suggest Chrome.

      I also had a problem once with the P button not appearing in IE but it was working fine with Chrome.

    Did already that test, without any success

    • Hi Hans,

      I think it would be helpful to get system access to have a look what might be missing. I would suggest, you create a ticket for the component BC-PER.

      Cheers,

      Tobias.
