    After u successfully downloaded the support pack from the service market place , the 1st authorization u need is for using the client 000.

    Only with the client 000 u will be available to import the support pack (ABAP suppotr package) using transaction SPAM. To use all SPAM functions, you require the following authorizations:

    S_TRANSPRT

    S_CTS_ADMIN

    If you log on in client 000, then your user master data contains the corresponding authorizations (inside the authorization profile) and you can use all the functions in Support Package Manager.

    For Java u can use jspm tool for applying the support packages for any component and if u want to enhance or upgrade the java components( say from ESS 1.1 to ESS 1.2) then u can do it using sdm tool.

    Before applying the pack u need to unpack the abap/java files using the commands in the command- prompt and copy the unpacked files into sap/sid/trans/eps/in folders of ur system.

    Also before using the SPAM for abap support pack make sure that u had set ur system as the domain-controller in transaction stms with ddic user and masterpwd.

    Hi Veera,

    Create a admin user with the authorization as of sap*.

    The profiles SAP_ALL and SAP_NEW would be required to

    apply the support packages.Make sure that the user with this profiles exsists in 000 client as we need to upload the support packages only in 000 client.

    Reward points if helpfull.

    Regards,

    Vamshi.
