Several question on EhP



Have several questions on including EHP during the upgrade. We have done several benchmarks on our prodcopy system from 46C to ERP 6.0 using SR3, without EhP. We have applied EhP3 using SAINT in the sandbox. For our go-live, we are only doing technical upgrade, but client is requesting to include EhP.

(1) Has anyone measured the additional downtime if you include EhPX during the ERP upgrade?

(2) Do we need to order latest CDs for SR3 to be able to include EHPx during the upgrade, or having the xml file sufficient? I've seen a thread suggesting this, but what is the reason?

(3) Activation of EhP is irreversible, what is the best way that no one can accidentally activate it. I know transaction SFW5 can be locked, but at the same time can easily be unlocked.

(4) Since our go-live is pure technical upgrade, it is worth including EhP during the ERP upgrade or do it later when they are ready to use it? What are the pros and cons?
