I have installed MDM 7.1 on my laptop. How do I upgarade MDM 7.1 to a new version? Do I have to use SAPINST for that? Or just like MDM 5.5. I can individually install each component manually?

Thank you.

    Hi Boris,

    Servers shall be installed & upgraded via SAPINST. Clients can be installed & upgraded as usual by executing their related install files.

    Best regards

    To install the MDM 7.1 servers, SAP provides new SAPINST-based installers that also install the Startup Framework and the SAP MMC in your system.

    We can use of the SAP Startup Service as a generic MDM Server start/stop toolset is introduced together with the new installation framework. This allows you to handle MDM servers with the SAP Management Console

    (SAP MMC) and also enables the MDM Console to handle MDM servers on any OS (operating system).

    The installer setup for the MDM GUI components has not changed for MDM 7.1. You can Install the MDM

    components you need on your host in the following order (depending on your scenario):

    1. MDM Console

    2. Administration component (MDM CLIX)

    3. MDM Data Manager

    4. MDM Import Manager

    5. MDM Syndicator

    6. MDM Language Selector

    7. MDM UoM Manager

    8. MDM Image Manager

    9. MDM Publisher

    10. MDM Indexer

    11. All publishing components (DTP plug-ins)

    Hope it helps!
