Upgrade from SAP R/3 Enterprise 4.70 to ECC 6.0

Hi experts,

I am currently trying to build some knowledge for my final project. (Working as an apprentice in computer science atm)

Main goal of the project is to upgrade our dev system to ECC 6.0.

As far as I understand it, ECC 6.0 ONLY works with NetWeaver 7.0. Do I need to upgrade to NW7 before I upgrade to ECC 6.0 or is there a all-in-one package, which upgrades both at once?

I browsed through a few upgrade guides but didn't really find an explaination I could understand...

Could someone describe the basic steps for such an upgrade? (Like: Copy System - Upgrade NW - Install Components....)

Kinda desperate 😀

Thanks in advance!

Sandro Bollschweiler

P.s.: I hope I used the right Forum for my question...

    When you upgrade to SAP ERP 6.0 (ECC 6.0), the underlying technology within the SAP R/3 4.7 system is automatically upgraded to the SAP NetWeaver 7.0 version. It is one upgrade;

    SAP R/3 4.7 -

    > upgrade -

    > SAP ERP 6.0

    SAP Web AS -

    > SAP NetWeaver 7.0

    The upgrade guides are you best place for information. The SAP ERP 6.0 has the steps to follow and all requirements.

    For installations, please see the aptly named installation guide title "Master guide - SAP ERP 6.0". Both the upgrade and installation guides are available at

    For system copy info, see the SDN page: System Copy and Migration

    There is some demo examples here too 😊

    All the best,

    Hi Sandro Bollschw,

    You just need to upgrade you R/3 to ECC6. Please download all of the dvd's for ECC6.0 UPGRAADE. make sure you download everything which says UPGRADE. run prepare. whatever you will need, in prepare it will ask you and you can upgrade after words. No need panic... keep it simple upgrade. It will upgrade to netweaver automatically. Make sure, you don't leave anything behind in PREPARE neither any errors. So just follow NW04s upgrade master guide. It will take you to your destination successfully.

    I hope this can help!
