Can we apply note AFTER patch has been applied?

Hello

We have installed a patch set into DEV which is being tested. This patch set contains a note which we need urgently in QA.

Are there any issues with applying the note individually? It will need to go into DEV first - although it's already there - & then be applied to QA as a transport.

We can only apply the patch set to QA when the full testing has been done.

Thanks, Chris

    Chris,

    You won't be able to use SNOTE in this case, because it will figure out that the Note doesn't apply in your DEV system, and/or is already applied. You could potentially open up QA and use SNOTE there, and create a transport from QA and manually apply that later to PRD, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend this route.

    Does the Note only contain code corrections? Or does it also have manual changes? Config settings and so forth? If it's only code corrections, you could simply create a manual transport out of DEV containing all the programs and function modules touched by the Note.

    Hi Matt - Thanks for the reply.

    I think our problem is that we're quite a long way behind on our patches. Which means that the note we need to apply has many dependencies - all of which I'd need to get into any transport we created on DEV. I could do this but I'm worried I'm likely to miss something.

    So we're considering opening up QA & applying the note in there (using SNOTE). It may be a stupid question but how do we open up QA? We assumed it was a change to be made in SCC4 but this is client specific & we have 5 clients on our QA machine (as well as 000 etc).

    Thanks for your help. Chris

    I spoke to SAP about this & they advised that we needed to temporarily open up QA (using SE06 & SCC4) & apply the note using SNOTE there.

    Cheers, Chris
