    have a thorough and deep look into the corresponding upgrade guide...

    -> you will need a key generated by a sap solution you should have one installed 😉

    -> you will need to upgrade your oracle to 10g (eg.

    -> you will need to upgrade to windows 2003 (have a look at PAM)

    -> you might have to switch to 64bit...

    -> you might want to switch to UNiCODE...

    as always....start PREPARE, follow the hints given, fulfill all prerequisites and start SAPUP afterwards (according to your planning)...

      If you are planing to upgrade a 4.7 system to ECC6, please DO NOT use any 4.6 software.

      That is nonsense.

      Some people here are not able to carefully read details of questions and just cut & paste stuff they have written once. stupid!

      you have severyl options, depending on your needs.

      1. you can update your SAP System on your machine (not done very often because you typically do not have the production environment as test environment)

      2. you can perform a system copy of your source system to a test hardware (which may later run the production). This is the common method testing and running the upgrade.

      it starts with an homogenious system copy (see system copy guides). Typically the target system of the systemcopy did already fullfill the requirements for the ECC6 upgrade (Windows 2003 64 BIT -not required but very strongly recommended, Oracle10 or SQLServer 2006...)

      as Andreas already mentioned: reading the SAP System Upgrade Guide is not an option, it's a must!
