Update Kernel 711 to 721 EXT


I applied the Kernel update following the note

Note 1713986 - Installation of kernel 721 (EXT)

the Kernel version on my server is 711 and when I applied the new Kernel 721 Ext. the SAP service was stopped on the services.msc of windows.

when trying to start the services in Services.msc I get the following error:

the service on local computer started and then stopped. some services stop automatically

When you go to the SAP System Console ma appears blank

    Hi Diego,

    A possible cause is not to have installed the current C runtime library as per note 1553465 by executing vcredist_<platform>.msi.

    Kernel 7.2X Ext needs Visual Studio 2010

    To identify if this is the problem you can consult blog :

    You can also check if there is more information about the problem in :

    - event viewer aplication or system logs

    - In sap work directory . Mainly in sapstartsrv.log , sapstart.log, and stderr* files

    Best regards,

      Hi Manuel,

      thanks for the info.

      I have installed the library c runtime and found that inside the folder usr\sap\<>\<>\exe the file librfc32.dll does not exist. by copying this file I could upload the services without problems.

      Best regards.
