    Hi N Kumar

    you can install the 4.7EE on win2003 ,even we are working on the same OS platform,but let me ask you a question why you want to upgrade to 4.7EE since the latest version of SAP(ECC 6 sr3) is avaliable

    are you talking about Production landscape ?

    Regards

    It is compatible. You can do the upgrade on this OS.

    Mandays for installation and upgradation?

    Estimation for Installation: you are doing upgrade, why you are asking for installation estimation, i dont know, but check below for installation.

    Preparation : 1 day(8 hours)

    Installation : 1.5 days( 12 hours)

    Post-Installation : 1 day( with support packs and post-steps), so total you can assume 3.5 to 4 man days.

    Estimation for Upgrade:

    Preparation or checking the system : 2 hours

    PREPARE : 8 to 10 hours

    Upgrade : 2 days

    Post-Upgrade : 4 hours, so total you can assume 4 to 5 man days.

    hardware requirements for this upgrade and new system configuration and any helpful links?

    You need to increase the free space for upgrade:

    /usr/sap/put directory needs atleast 10 to 12 GB

    /usr/sap/trans needs atleast 5 to 8 GB

    For Helpful links:

    For guides : service.sap.com/instguides( this is more than enough to get information on your respective upgrade)

    For software : service.sap.com/swdc
