    Hi,

    Go to Servicemarket place, Go to <b>Softwaredownloads->SAP Support Packages->SAP Support Package Stacks->SAP Netweaver 2004s</b>.

    Enter your Source Stack as SP9 and Target Stack as SP11 and select your Usage Selection depending upon your requirement.

    Next select your Kernel <b>32bit \ 64bit</b> depending upon your requirement.This will display your required SCA's.Download all the required SCA's by selecting the option "Add to Download Basket".

    Now you have your required SCA's of SPS11 with you.Copy all these SCA's to your<b> /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in </b> directory.

    Now go to <b>/usr/sap/<SID>/JC<CI>/j2ee/JSPM</b>

    click <b>go.bat</b> file to run your JSPM.

    During Patching first JSPM gets updated to SPs11 and then prompts you for a restat of <b>JSPM</b>.

    Then you can again run your <b>go.bat</b> file and continue your patching.This will bring all your SCA's to SP11.

    Any queries revert back.

    Do reward points if useful.

    Peter,

    You need to go to the NW2004S Support Pack Stack download area on the SAP Service Marketplace. You enter you source and target stack levels and the usage types you have installed. SMP will then calculate which components need to be deployed, and gives you the option to add them to your download basket. You should also save the list of packages as an xml file. The option is there for you to do that. You then need to transfer all that packages, plus your xml file, to the /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in directory. You then need to start JSPM (Java Support Pack Manager). JSPM will read the EPS/in directory, and from the xml file will calculate the required queue. The first time you run it, it will deploy the SP11 version of JSPM. It will then prompt you to restart JSPM, so that you are using the new version. This time it will process the rest of SPS11. Note that if you have a dual stack (ABAP + Java), then it will automatically shutdown both stacks to replace the kernel.

    Cheers, Barry.

      Hi Subodh,

      I got the necessary support packages and the XML file from SMP. First I only copied the JSPM11.SCA to the ..trans\EPS\in directory and started the upgrade of JSPM choosing New Software Component option.

      After restarting JSPM I put the other SCAs and the XML file to the previous directory and started the upgrade selecting the Support Pack Stack option at the first step.

      There were some errors during upgrade (e.g. Connection between SDM client and server is broken.), in that case I restarted the procedure.

      Regards,

      Peter

    Hi,

    As said earlier ,if you define the Usage types to be updated and

    Present level and traget SP level,list of SCA's or zip files will be dispalyed.

    It can be downloaded to your system.

    Make sure you rename all sca's to .SCA format ,if they are downloaded as ZIP file.

    SDMKIT.JAR should be kept with the .JAR extension itself.

    For SPS11, Kernel level will 95.Make sure,you take Unicode kernel only.

    After downlaoding all these are copied to /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in.

    Then to run JSPM,one important point to be remembered is,always login through

    "sidadm" user.

    If you don't use, "sidadm" user,you can never login to JSPM page.

    The you have to supply with "SDM password" which will be the administrative password.

    If you don't have the xml file downloaded,you have select the option "Single support package".

    Then all the SCA's will be scanned and their present level n target level will be displayed.

    first time,jSPM gets updated and exits from deploymnet.

    when you restart the deployment,rest of the components gets deployed.

    reward points if helpful..............

      I started to deploy the .sca files using SDM, the following three could not be deployed:

      - BIUDI (Deployment finished with error)

      - LMTOOLS (SDM freezed at 65% deployment)

      - CAF (Deployment finished with error)

      The log file did not help me, there were exceptions at com.sap.engine.services.webservices...

      The upgrade was important for me because the SAP JEE SPS11 contains "com.sapportals.connectors.*" package which I want to use, but I could not import any com.sapportals packages in NWDS however the deployment of SAPJEE went OK.

      Any ideas why I cannot reach that package?

      Does it make trouble, that BIUDI, LMTOOLS and CAF .sca-s could not be deployed?

      Thanks,

      Peter
