How to update Dialog App Server kernel?

Gurus,

How do you update Dialog App Server kernel? I did the same way I did to Central Instance, but in SM51 of the app server it still show the old version kernel.

Thanks in advance,

Allen

    Hi Allen,

    You didn`t mention your landscape details(OS,DB ver etc). Always start your query by giving the background of your landscape.

    If you are using R/3 4.*, Unix, Oracle then below is the procedure,

    After applying the kernal patch in CI, there is no need to apply in app servers. The reason is , there is a exe program( SAPCPE.exe) in app server which compares the kernal version of CI and copies the newly added kernel file when ever there is a mis match between the app server and CI.

    This is done automatically during the app server restart.

    You can check in /usr/sap/<SID>/sys/exe/run/SAPCPE.exe

    Award points if it helps your query.

    regards,

    Vinodh.

    Our CI/DB is on Windows 2003 32bit / SQL2000 / 4.7 Ent. The App server is on Windows 2003 64 bit OS. When I try to update the App server with x64 bit kernel, the old kernel show up in the SM51, but command line show the new kernel. Do i need to restart CI/DB?

      Allen,

      Thanks for updating the same. its really a strange to see CI as 32bit and App server as 64bit OS.

      I am not sure about the reason,if the proessor is different in CI and APP. I recommend to contact OSS for their suggestion.

      Also, try bouncing the CI and APP.

      regards,

      Vinodh.
