I am not sure about which steps I have to perform, I am a bit confused.. because some are optional and some are not relevant to my release (as target or source release is different from mine). and also few things are not applied in my envirnoment hence those steps are also not relevant.

Please suggest me, how to proceed and what to do. please guide if i skip this step now and later on I apply latest SP than still I need to do all this.

    You can reduce the work by checking if the notes are applicable to your source/target system, then work with the functional team who are more aware of that is applicable or not to your system.

    Hi Vinay,

    ASU transaction will helps u to perform the things, in that transaction it self u can see what u have to do...

    any wayz if u r having any issue then run transaction /ASU/START and check.

    for more information see the below note.

    SAP Note 1000009 - ASU Toolbox 2008

    That should be helpful for you.

    Hi All,

    I also faced a similar issue during upgrade. Some useful findings.

    1. Only super user can access this /n/ASU/START

    2. All the obligatory executable tasks are automatically performed by the system automatically during upgrade. SAPADM. Only errors (if any) are to be corrected.

    3. Some of the tasks are only to go through some SAP notes as a precaution before upgrade.

    4. Execute all the checks /n/ASU/UPGRADE

    5. This surely can be skipped, but not advisable.
