    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

    • Hi,

      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,
