    Hello Abhi,

    check out via transaction SM51 (Button "Release Notes") on what version and OS/DB your SAP System is running.

    Find in the "new" SAP support portal under patches

    Support Packages and Patches | SAP Support Portal:

    Alphabetical List of Products

    Under "K" find the section for your OS/DB.

    Usually you are downloading a stack, that is matching your application component.

    SAP Solution Manager would tell your required stack, when you run a "Maintenance Optimizer" request.

    But there are cases, where you just need to update the kernel components and don't need to create a "Maintenance Optimizer" request.

    Mostly you would need from the download sections (Support Packages and Patches | SAP Support Portal) the package for database independet (Kernel Part I) and the database (Kernel Part II).

    Download them und extract them with sapcar program (sapcar -xvf).

    Shutdown your SAP Instance and backup your kernel directory (usr/sap/[SID]/sys/exe/....).

    Stop all SAP Services and database services/demons.

    Replace the extracted kernel files.

    Startup your database/SAP Instance.

    I hope that helps.

    Best regards

    Carlos Behlau
