Hi there,

we have upgraded the kernel version in our ECC system, everything went well Disp+work is showing the new version but when checked in SAP its still showing the old version.

Please let me know what should be done to resolve this issue.

Thanks - Bhushan

Hello, remember Kernel might be located in 2 paths;


/usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe (that should have softlinks to the above location)

/usr/sap/SID/DVEBMGS21/exe (actually this is the one SAP uses to run), be aware that your system might have a different instance name

sapcpe normally copies the kernel from /sampnt/ location to the above location ../exe, make sure that kernel has been updated there too

Thank you for the reply Mario,

How can i know whether my kernel at /usr/sap/SID/DVEBMGS21/exe is also upgraded.

is that through or sapcpe.log or anyother way?

Best regards..



You can execute "/usr/sap/SID/instance/exe/disp+work -V|more".

This way you will be executing the disp+work file that is explicitly inside that exe folder.

Best regards,
