Hi Biral,

Pardon the delay in responding to your question on SAP Netweaver upgrade to 7.5.

This would primarily involve a SUM upgrade. Plus an ASE update, depending on the ASE version you are on. For Netweaver 7.5, please install the latest available ASE version on SAP Service Marketplace - ASE 160 SP02 PL07.

Please see the following respective SAP KBAs for supporting information on the Netweaver and ASE upgrades:

2499041 - Does SAP BW 7.5 only support SAP HANA?

2238127 - How to upgrade ASE in a Business Suite environment - SAP ASE for Business Suite

Do revert with any questions on the above.

Thanks and Regards,

Madhvi Pai

Hello Madhvi,

Thank you for your answer.The main hurdle for me is the pre-upgrade steps.What activities need to be carried out from BW (on ASE) perspective before starting upgrade?

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Biral,

There are no pre-upgrade steps specific for BW on ASE systems. The general NetWeaver SUM upgrade steps apply.

Is there a particular area of concern wrt the BW system?

All relevant information related to the upgrade process is provided in respective SUM & ASE update SAP Notes. Please let me know if you need those..As mentioned, for NW 7.4->7.5, we may review SUM notes & for ASE update, please check SAP Notes:

1554717 - SYB: Planning information for SAP on ASE

1590719 - SYB: Updates for SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise (SAP ASE)

Thanks,

Hi Madhvi,

Actually,I will be performing first time BW upgrade. SAP BW is very specific system.

I mean the steps mentioned in this blog.-- https://blogs.sap.com/2016/06/22/bw-upgrade-to-74-steps-from-bw-perspective/ . Do i need to perform this steps before starting upgrade?

Can i use DMO in this case? I know while performing DMO, it ask two option:upgrade+migrate. If i select upgrade,will DMO will update ASE 15.7 -ASE 16.0? What can be options to perform BW upgrade? First ASE DB upgrade or SUM upgrade and then ASE upgrade.

Thank you very much.

Hi Biral,

DMO does not apply in your case (since you are not migrating to a different database).

As such, the NW and ASE upgrades are independant of each other. The order in this case shoud be: ASE first, then NW.

Please upgrade ASE to PL07 first (per the notes mentioned in SAP KBA 2238127).

After this, the SAP NW BW 7.4->7.5 upgrade can be conducted via SUM.

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Thanks,

Madhvi
