To update Kernel patch level from 111 to patch level 221....

Dear All,

We have Kernel level :-

700_REL

Patch level: 111

We want to update this patch level from 111 to patch level 221.

What is the road map to upgrade patch level of SAP kernel.

Should we upgrade directly from 111 to 221.Is this possible..??

Please advice me.

Regards,

JUNAID AHMAD

    Hello Junaid,


    yes it's possible
    See SAP Note 19466 where describes the process to download and apply kernel patches

    • Dear Mercedez,

      After performing Kernel upgrade,D/b is not started yet.

      We did all the post activities but the database is not started.

      What will we do & check now in this situation,kindly suggest.

      Another question is :-

      We have 700_REL(patch level-111) on SAP servers,but on SAP marketplace when we checked the patch level of 700_REL it shows patch level-10/20/110/201/301/....

      What does it means..??

      Whether it means our patch level is under 110 or 201.

      And if we want to upgrade our kernel from 700_REL then what are the recommendations for going to 720_REL(under 720-REL should we go for the higher patch level or lower patch level).

      Kindly suggest..
