I installed a new SM7.2 system, the ABAP stack has updated to SP03, for solman_setup, in 'system preparation' scenario, step 4.3 Implement Java Patches, the help text is as below:
1.To find the list of software components to be patched, open SAP Note 1595736, and the open the Release Information Note (RIN) that corresponds to your support package.
2.Open https://support.sap.com/swdc and choose Support Packages and Patches -> Browse Download Catalog -> SAP Technology Components -> SAP Solution Manager -> SAP Solution Manager 7.2 -> Solution Manager Java Stack. Download the relevant patches.
3.If you need to deploy software component SOLMANDIAG (LM-SERVICE), switch on maintenance mode, as described in the support package specific RIN (refer to 1.).
4.After the download of the Java component patches, place the files in a directory prepared to implement them. For more information, see the SUM guide at https://service.sap.com/sltoolset -> Software Logistics Toolset 1.0 -> Documentation -> System Maintenance -> Updating SAP Systems Using Software Update Manager <Version> -> Applying Single Component Updates and Patches Using a Manually Prepared Directory.
I have downloaded all the patches need for the java stack and put into a folder, and I using the latest SUM tool(1.0 SP17 PL8) to update it. But when it hit the 'SELECT ROADMAP' phase, I only have option specify the stack xml file, there is no option 'manual prepared directory', any idea why the option was missing? thanks.
