Problem with 640 kernel: SAP R3, Oracle9i, Sunsolaris

Dear Experts,

Am facing problem with kernel 640 version.

1. We have Production (620) and DR servers (620).

2. I upgraded kernel in production to 640, still pumping and applying redo logs in DR server which is 620 kernel.

3. I copied kernel 640 from production server to DR server.

4. When I open database in DR server (system started normally) it is showing kernel version 620 only, not 640.

5. Only diff is production server is upgraded from 4.0B to 4.7 and DR server recently we installed 4.7 directly.

After restoring backup in DR server again control file created and moved to DR server and applying redo logs normally.

Why kernel version showing only 620 in DR server???

Is control file plays any role in kernel upgrade. Should I open database and check again (with new control file and newly restored data). . . .

Any idea, , , ,

Adv thanks....

    hum, we are on the same release. Unfortunately we are not using Oracle datagard replication anymore. Are you seeing this from SAP Gui -> System Status -> other kernel info? At the O/S level on your DR site, login as <sid>adm and run disp+work. Does it show 6.20 or 6.40? I don't think (but I am not sure) this information is stored in the DB. I just ran a SQL trace when executing System status, the only table(s) queried where AVERS, AVER_EXT and PAT03 which seem to contain data about ABAP stack patches. So I think SAP Gui goes straight to the O/S to get the information.
