    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,

    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,

      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.
