Can PERSONAS 3 SP3 work correctly with Kernel release 7.22 Patchlevel 101 ? Import/export of flavors

Hello SAP experts,

Hope you are all well :)

We implemented SAP PERSONAS 3 SP3 with Kernel release 7.22 Patchlevel 101. However, I did read in note 2295995 (Version 39 from 24.11.2016, which explains:

  • Kernel Release 7.22 --> Minimum Patch Level 100 --> Recommended Patch Level 200

Then, note 2198998 (Version 96 from 16 nov. 2016, which says:

Patchlevel 101 is planned to be released on 18.03.2016 but its status is still 'in validation' instead of 'released' (in comparison, patchlevel 216 has been released the 11.11.16).

Issues faced: actually, when I create a flavor in source system, then export it locally as .zip file then import it in target system, the flavor appears but when double-clicking on it, it does not activate/display on the screen.

Also, I can create/update flavors in source system but in target system, I cannot create new flavor or update imported ones.

Question raised:

Is there a possibility that the issue comes from this Kernel 7.22 Patchlevel '101' installed (with status 'in validation') instead of a Patchlevel greater than '200' (with status 'released') ?

If not, would someone have a clue on other potential issues that could cause these issues ?

OSS Incident opened: 002075129400004255872016

Thanks in advance

    Kernel 722 PL 101 is not in validation and it is available on SMP since March 16, 2016. Look for SAPEXE_101-70000457.SAR

    However, while it should work, using such an old kernel is probably not the best solution with Personas. I'd definitely recommend going with the latest available patch level instead, if you can do that.

    With that said, the problems you mentioned do not appear to be related to the kernel patch level. As the first step, make sure your Personas installation is fully up-to-date with all notes implemented, according to the master note 2295995. If you are still facing the same issues after this, the OSS incident is the correct route. Make sure you have the necessary credentials in the secure area and the connections opened. The credentials are missing from your incident right now, I didn't check whether the R/3 and HTTP connections are open.

    Hello Tamas,

    Sorry for late reply. Thanks a lot for your useful advices, much appreciated !

    I did update the OSS incident with proper credentials and added also screenshots of the "Personas Note Checker". In target system (ECF) 5 notes are shown with 'health value' as a warning 'RFC connexion error'. In the source system (ECS), 1 note is shown as 'red' with status 'Can be implemented'.

    I asked SAP support whether the implementation of all these notes would solve my problem (in target system ECF: flavor appears but when double-clicking on it, it does not activate/display on the screen). I look forward to their reply on this.
