    Hello,

    to 1) The technical steps of an SolMan upgrade can be performed in less than 2 days, including backups, preparation phase, upgrade phases and some post activities. The run time depends on your system size and hardware, of course.

    to 2) I dont' understand the question. Is the DEV system you are talking about another SolMan System? Please specifiy.

    to 3) Yes, any version can do it.

    Best Regards,

    Holger Slomka

      Hi Markus,

      We did the Unicode migration separately, so we could reduce the downtime. But of course we also had a huge amount of SAP notes to implement. I was just speaking about the technical runtime, the overall project took much longer, including preparation, DEV system upgrade, testing, ...

      Because we already used CHaRM since end of 2005, we also had no choice to install a fresh system, but I would also prefer. Also we could not implement the new BC Sets for Charm, so we had to check the differences ...

      Best Regards,

      Holger

    Hi Swaroop,

    Are you using your SAP Solution Manager system to generate Installation/Upgrade Keys, only?

    If yes, my suggestion is the following:

    - setup a new SolMan 7.0 and don't upgrade your existing SolMan 3.2. This saves time and money.

    - shut down the SolMan 3.2, once you have finished the configuration of SolMan 7.0 and the system is up and running.

    Best regards,

    Ruediger
