    Hai,

    Side effect reports are given only for Support packs since they change the structure of your system.

    Since Kernel upgrade changes the executables to a newer level it does not make any changes to your application and hence it is not possible to give a side effect report. Kernel upgrades are required to correct or to provide enhancements in SAP functionality. Patch 247 of SAP_BASIS 640 has some problems, if you are planning to apply the kernel patch 247 then you can apply them along with the disp+work package,enserver etc., of the latest patch level..

      Hai,

      I guess there are no notes for the latest kernel 185.

      In which patch level you are in right now?

      You can try upgrading your DEV or QAS systems if you are really worried to know the side effects of the kernel upgrade to 185.

      There is no harm in upgrading because anyway you have to backup the old kernel, if something goes wrong anytime you can switch to the old kernel.
