SRM 5.0 SP upgrade - queries

Hi all,

We are on SRM 5.0 SP13.We need to upgrade to higher Support pack due to the ongoing issues in std functionalities in our system.

My questions:

1.How long does SP upgrade take place???

2.What is the gen approach??First dev then quality and then production environment or something different?

3.Does any of the configuration change after SP upgrade??

4.After SP upgrade,if there are still any issues in the std functionality,do we need to appply additional notes?

5.Going further,after every SP upgrade,what kind of testing needs to be done other than end to end business process?

6.We are facing issues in std functionalities (as we are on lower SP).What should be the approach to fix these issues?

Should we apply the relevant notes,test the end to end process and then upgrade to highest SP?

OR

Directly upgrade the system to the highest SP available so that all the relevant notes are included automatically and then test the end to end process?

Thanks!

    You need to consult with BASIS team . Basis consulatnt can advice on this. This activity will be done by SAP Basis folks.

    2.What is the gen approach??First dev then quality and then production environment or something different?

    yes.

    3.Does any of the configuration change after SP upgrade??

    No need to change any configuration.

    4.After SP upgrade,if there are still any issues in the std functionality,do we need to appply additional notes?

    You need to thorougly test all existing business process and make ensure that no impact on business and not causing any side effect. after upgrading SP , you can report to SAP if you have any issues / errors.

    5.Going further,after every SP upgrade,what kind of testing needs to be done other than end to end business process?

    Whatever Business process existing and you need to write all test scripts and business has to satisfy your testing results.
