Impact of upgrading the SAP_BASIS on the backend of the Portal


We are running ERP 6.0 SPS 5 on our ERP 6.0 system and running the corresponding components on the NW 7.0 portal. We are planning to upgrade only SAP_BASIS and SAP_ABAP to SP 13 that are part of SPS 11. We do not want to upgrade the portal components at all as we think it might affect the code as well as underlying base components of the portal which becomes a larger effort. Does anybody know if this is going to cause any problems in the future? Please let us know. Thanks.

    If it's a combined ABAP + Java installation you must keep all components in sync.

    • Ok. It seems like it defeats the SAP's purpose of SP stacks. But, in reality it is hard to upgrade all the components in one shot and incur a long effort and downtime. That is why we are taking this approach of applying the bare minimum required support packs. But does SAP support this kind of effort or ask us to upgrade by stack only?

    If you upgrade ERP SP-5 to SP-13 there is no impact on Portal.
