Downloading the support packs form the solution manager ?

Hi Guys,

I have setup new PI 7.1 system and we are currently at SP4. I need to upgrade to SP6.

I am very new to the solution manager. I have added this new system during the generation of solman key.

I want to know the configuration to be done to download the support packs from the market place. I have a s-user account. Can somebody please explain me in detail how to add my s-user account and how to download the latest support packs.

any help would be really appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.

    It sounds like you want to set up SolMan just for basic functionality. You'll need to configure Maintenance Optimizer as well as perform some other basic setup tasks.

    Set up your system Landscape in SMSY

    Create the RFCs for communication with SAP

    Execute the Maintenance Optimizer BC Set

    Your S-User can be entered in transaction AISUSER (without the s and leading zeros)

    Doing these 4 things should get you going for downloading support packs through SolMan

      Thats right. In SMSY, System Groups and Logical Components, SAP NETWEAVER, Process Integration (PI/XI) you can see SAP NETWEAVER XI. This is a possible logical component. But it is better to create a new logical component, for example Z_PI.

      On the right side you have to assign the systems to DEV, QAS and PROD systems.

      After that you have to assign the logical component to your defined solution.
