Upgrade path from ECC 6.0 to ECC 6 EHP 8

Hello,

We want to know how to get to ECC 6, EHP 8 on NW 7.50 with HANA or ASE (for both database choices) from the current status using SUM DMO.

I am assuming it will need to be in two steps.

Is it ERP 6 EHP8 that we should upgrade and follow the guides/PAM/maintenance planer? I can not find ECC6 EHP8 info.

Curent level of landscape:

NW 700 SPS13

SAP ECC 6.0 SPS09

Kernel 721 - PL40

ORACLE - 11.2.0.4.0

Thanks

    Thank you Frank and Boris.

    Now I have a better picture of the situation.

    Our main question is: Can we go to target with one step? Or two steps are mandatory.
    - Source is Unicode,
    - does not yet has an ASCS, and
    - it has only one instance
    ll /sapmnt/XXP/profile
    DEFAULT.PFL
    XXP_DVEBMGS45_Server1
    START_DVEBMGS45_Server1

    I was checking PAM, but there is no "upgrade to" for ECC 6.0.

    Also from ERP 6.0 there is no "Upgrade to" ERP 6.0 EHP 8:

    Hello Bledar,

    There are a few aspects to consider when upgrading to EhP8 and you are right, it might not be a possible in one step, depending whether you are already on Unicode or not. If you like, please check this excellent blog by Boris Rubarth:

    Why EHP 8 is different

    Best regards

    Hello Bledar,

    yes, you should follow the guides for SAP ERP 6.0 EHP 8, and use SUM 2.0.
    (blog on SUM 2.0: https://blogs.sap.com/2017/08/10/sum-in-the-family-way/)

    Some notes that may be helpful:

    • SAP ERP 6.0 EHP8 - Release Information Note 2171334
    • DMO with SUM 2.0 SP 00: SAP Note 2428170
    • SUM 2.0 SP 00: SAP Note 2428168

    Regards, Boris
