Relation between R3 kernel version 640 and 4.6B, C D

Hi,

What is the relation between R3 Kernel 640 version and SAP 4.6B, C, D versions. Based on R3 kernel version how to identify the sap version e.g. 4.6B, C D etc.

Thanks.

    Hi,

    The difference is these are two versions from sap, 640 version is for ecc5 and 7 for ecc6. Kernal is specific to sap release versions.

    • I respectfully disagree....

      You can have a 4.6C system with a 620 or 640 kernel and that won't make it ECC

      As far as i remember in 4.6 and 4.7 you can use kernel up to 640...

      You can find you sap version at System -> Status -> Component version

      Regards

    Hello Anirudh,

    Every SAP release will have its own set of kernel releases

    SAP Kernel 7.00 is valid for ECC 6.0.

    SAP kernel 640 is actually valid from SAP R/3 Enterprise 4.7. it is also valid for ECC 5.0

    For 4.6 C kernel release 46D is available.

    For 4.6B SAP Kernel 4.6B and 4.6 C are available.

    For 4.6A 4.6A,4.6B and 4.6C are available.

    This is what is available in marketplace however I have heard about something called downward compatability of kernels which means lower releases can have higher kernels.

    You must always go for the highest available kernel patch.

    However kernel is OS bit size specific

    Regards.

    Ruchit.
