SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SP03 content activation queries

Hi,

We are planning to build and install 7.2 SP03 version in new box and transport the solution documentation project in new box and do the content activation.

Whether this work for content activation process in 7.2? or we need to do the upgrade from 7.1 to 7.2 and do the solution documentation project content activation?

Currently we are not using any other functionality in SAP Solman. so planning to bulid a new box in different OS/hardware and do the content activation.

Rg,

Karthik

    Hi All,

    Below notes help to capture the project content and transport to newly installed SAP solution manager 7.2 system.

    Hi Karthik,

    Answer is clearly no and above approach will definitely not work.

    Content activation is only possible if you have upgraded your solman 7.1 system. There are no project or solution in solman 7.2 so you can't do import or transport here.

    Thus if system having your solman 7.1 solman project and you upgrade it solman 7.2, then only you can execute content activation.

    hope this helps

    Thanks

    Hi Prakhar,

    In Amazon, SAP Solution Manager CAL support transport import and do the content activation to check project structure in 7.2 version.

    But in 7.2 SP03 it won't work?

    Hi Karthik,

    It is for testing and not REAL live usage in that case, isn't?

    you can't import your master data for solution documentation, charm itsm project management test management/ etc. can you?

    so yes answer is open to you and you have to select as per your case because there might be some business/customer constraints about logging/change tracking/change transaction/knowledge based/document versions/ etc which is lost incase of a fresh system but its a customer decision as per their requirement scenario.

    If you have a structure only then may be fresh install is a option but then are you sure to re-create it as it is or get it automatically done in 7.2 as per live usage easily later or else if you want to upgrade with one project with just structure content activation is not at all hard and more an automated process only.

    I would advise you to check and advise your customer as per understanding the complete detail about their requirement and further deciding on Solman 7.2 upgrade or install as it is more brilliant and powerful version.

    Thanks

    Hi Prakhar,

    SAP development team has came up with a procedure and report to do the content activation after transport import from 7.1 -> 7.2 version.

    I am working on the procedure.

    So the answer is we can able to do the content activation for the 7.1 transport project import in 7.2 version.SAP is not yet released the SAP notes for the same. once release i will update it.

    Rg,

    Karthik

    • Hi Karthik,

      My answer are not forever but valid with respect to time.

      there are many things I know also that SAP is working which is not possible at the moment or in current version but available in future but for those queries the answer is no for today.

      happy to help again.

      thanks
