    Login as: SIDADM

    ADDLIBLE SAP_TOOLS

    APYSIDKRN SID(XXX) ARCHIVES('/SAPMEDIA/K721/*') SAVSAR(*NONE) MODE(*ADD) CHGENV(*YES) UPDAPAR(*NO)

    Call QP2TERM (disp+work) to verify new kernel

    DLTR3PKG SID(XXX)

    Log off as user ADM and Log Back In and start the instance.

    There are some pre-requisite commands you need to do prior executing APYSIDKRN such as apply new user concept or classic

    ie..

    Login as: QSECOFR

    CHGCURDIR (‘/SAPMEDIA/K721)

    CALL QP2SHELL PARM('/QOpenSys/usr/bin/csh' '-c' './SAPCAR.EXE -xvf ILE.SAR iletools ILE_TOOLS; ./iletools')

    ADDENVVAR ENVVAR(CLASSICUSERCONCEPT) VALUE('Y')

    ADDLIBLE SAP_TOOLS

    FIXSAPOWN *NONE SAP_TOOLS

    I hope this will help you.

    Regards,

    Guillermo

    • Hi Paran.

      1. From the SIDADM before starting the APYSIDKRN have you add the library SAP_TOOLS?

      2. Library creation and extraction are done thruogh SAP SIDADM or Qsecofr user id ?

      <'/sapmnt/IDO/patches/work/SAPCAR' -xvf '/KERNEL/dw_712-10011210.sar,' -R '/sapmnt/IDO/patches/work/dw_712-10011210_sar_0'>

      LOG(apysap.c/03693): SAPCAR error message processing /KERNEL/dw_712-10011210.sar (without checking digital signature):

      3. After downloaded the kernel files from SAP SMP you have to rename those files to SAPEXE.sar,SAPEXEDB.sar,IGSEXE.sar & IGhelper.sar, then follow the steps as reference SAP note 1097751
