Upgrade MS SQL 2005 platform to MS SQL 2008 - Update the JDBC driver issue

Hello to all,

I´m planning to do an upgrade of a sap system (SAP ECC 6.0) from SQL Server 2005 to an SQL Server 2008 but I´m facing with a little problem. This system has two stacks - ABAP + JAVA - and because of that the Upgrade Guide to MS SQL Server 2008 describe which are the requirements for this upgrade DB platform, and one of them is this:

"If you use a Java system, you have updated the JDBC driver as described in SAP Note 639702"

... the updated of JDBC driver when we have in system a Java part, like it has in this case! But I´m with a serious problems to find in SAP System Files in Windows 2003 Server the four files that is mentioned in that note 639702. I can´t find it anywhere... in note says:

Depending on the SAP release and the system configuration, the driver files base.jar, util.jar, sqlserver.jar, and spy.jar are available in an installed system at:
(NetWeaver'04, Java:) usrsap<SAP SID>JC<InstanceNumber>j2eejdbc
(NetWeaver'04, ABAP+Java:) usrsap<SAP SID>DVEBMGS<InstanceNumber>j2eejdbc
(NetWeaver 2004s:) usrsap<SAPSID>SYSexe<NUC|UC>Platformmssjdbc

But... still I didn´t find them! I also read other note 1109274 - New JDBC driver for NetWeaver 7.0 and higher but even so I still can´t find it! 😔

Can you help me to find this files on my operation system? I have to update that JDBC... but of course for this task I have to find it first!!!

    The files are usually located in:


    Please, check the note 639702 for further details.

    If the files are not in this directory, then please download and

    import the JDBC driver as per note 639702.

    • Hi John Feely,

      I already finish the SQL Server upgrade (from 2005 to 2008 version).

      Before the upgrade procedure I had this little doubt and what I did to pass this issue was install the JDBC driver like it was the first time, like if the system hadn´t that driver path! Finally after this I procedure with upgrade task as it mentioned in the Upgrade Guide!!

      I had opened another post in other group with the same question:

      So thank you for trying to help me.

      Best regards,
