Apply SPS 14 for Solman 7.1 with SUM 1.0SP17 following Note 2184647 documentation

Hello,

I am trying to apply SPS 14 of Solman 7.1 with SUM 1.0SP17, as documented in Note 218467.

The notes specifies the following:

###

For updating both stacks independently, use the Software Update Manager (SUM) version SP 9

(patch 2) or higher for updating the Java stack and transactions SPAM or SAINT, resp., for

updating the ABAP stack.

Regardless of the order in which you run these tools,

you have to apply the same stack configuration file (XML) to update the system consistently.

To update the Java stack of the system using SUM, follow the process described in

chapter 'Running the Software Update Manager' of the SUM guide

(see link to this guide above).

However, you must use this special command to start SUM which ensures that SUM will

only update the Java stack of the system:

On Windows: <DRIVE>:\usr\sap\<sapsid>\SUM\STARTUP javaonly<RETURN>

On UNIX: /usr/sap/<sapsid>/SUM/STARTUP javaonly<RETURN>

On IBM i: ADDLIBLE SAPSLT<RETURN> STARTSUM OPTIONS('javaonly')<RETURN>

###

But it is not possible to run STARTUP javaonly with SUM 1.0SP17.

How should I proceed to update only the java stack with SUM 1.0SP17?

Regards,

    Hi Benoit,

    First of all, I would always recommend to update both stacks with SUM in normal way.

    In any case you can try the below :

    Dear Schmid,

    I haven't upgraded any system using sum sp17 till now but as per the sum sp16 patch 4, once you start the sum process It will show you three link 1) dual 2) abap 3) java .

    If you use below java link, you can update your java stack.

    Hi Benoît,

    Maybe you'd can try to open an incident to SAP within component BC-UPG-RDM about the special command to update java stack only in SLM since the command provided in note 2184647 does not work.

    Hello Schmid,

    SUM SP17 guide doesn't talk about such option. If you would like to update Java stack only, please provide stack XML of Java stack only and observe the behavior. However, any reason you want to apply SPS14 only on Java stack of Solution Manager?

    Thanks.

    • You will have to generate a stack XML for your Java SPS and use it in SUM. So please generate one try using it in the dual stack URL. If it doesn't work, you may want to try using SUM SP9 patch2 as stated in the note you referred.
