Question on Appying NW Support Package Stack

Hi,

I have question on how to go about applying support package stack. For instance, I have NW system with SPS8.0. If I need to update my system to SPS11, should I choose directly SPS11 or go one by one up?

Would appreciate, any help on this.

Below link take us to SPS page ( need SMP logon)

Thanks,

Raj

    Hello Raj,

    If you want to go from NW system with SPS8.0 to SPS11, then you should select "target" SPS as SPS11, and source as SPS8, then download. It would download the required packages for you.

    As Juan already explained, you've to apply the support packs 9,10,11. for the required components.

    patches are cumulative

    Just to correct the previous post by Juan (I guess it was a typo)

    Please note that both individual Support Packages and SP Stacks are Non-cumulative. This means that, when you import Support Packages, then you import a gap less series of Support Packages and, if

    you use SP Stacks, you also import these without a gap.

    The only exception is the Support Package for SPAM itself. & Java support packages which comes in SCA format.

    Regards,

    Debasis.

    You need to apply all the patches required from SPS8 to SPS11... Example if SPS8 has SAP_BASIS 8 and SPS11 has SAP_BASIS 11 then you need to apply 9,10 and 11.... patches are cumulative.

    When you select in Marketplace SPS8 as source ans SPS11 as target it will list all the required support packages to be applied.

    Regards

    Juan
