7.3 Upgrade Error-This upgrade don't support upgrade of the


I am upgrading our sandbox portal (7.0 EHP1 SPS6) to NW 7.3 SPS3. Usage types installed in the original system are AS Java, EPC and EP.

During the Configuration roadmap step, it gaves us the following error:

An error has occurred during the execution of the DETERMINE_APPLICATION phase.

This upgrade don't support upgrade of the source products combination.

Why do I get this error? Can this be because of ERP related business packages that we have deployed in our portal? We are using some BPs in our portal like Warehouse Manager, Buyer, etc.

Has anyone received a similar error in their upgrades? Please suggest how to resolve this.

Thanks and regards,

    You are right, error you are facing because of business packages. What is SP level for your business packages ?

    Also, if you look at SAP note 1532805:, it clearly says if upgrade gives you this message then certain support packs need to be un-installed. Please check this note, your BP version does not match with Netweaver 7.3 and moreover SAP has not released BP for NW7.3 yet.

    • > I got a reply from SAP that these BPs are not supported.

      > However, even now the upgrade tool is reading 2 of the BPs while the third one is not detected (which is good). But I don't understand, why is the tool still reading the BPs that I have already uninstalled?

      Because undeploying will not completely "remove" them from the stack. Once installed they stay there. It's not like uninstalling software.

      > Upgrade is still stuck in the same phase. Please help.

      Since you are doing an upgrade that is currently, according to the answer from SAP, unsupported nobody but SAP can help you.

    Hi ,

    May be you already found a solution. We moved ahead from a similar situation with our upgrade by editing the ../upg/java/config/NotSupportedProductsCombination.xml

    <?xml version="1.0"?>

    <VariableHandler name="NotSupportedProductsCombination">

    <StringTable name="PRODUCTS">

    <TableDefinition NumberKeyColumns="3" NumberColumns="3">























    We kind of spoofed the upgrade to think that its ok to proceed.

      Hi Ivan,

      Wehn using BS 7 Hub Upgrade Master: 51041445, during Cinfiguration phase SDT looks for FIX_NWBS730.UPG, could you please provide details of where this was downloaded during your upgrade.

      Becase the note:1537729 refers to the path -> Download -> Support Packages and Patches -> Entry by Application Group -> Additional Components -> Upgrade Tools -> CORRECTIONS FOR UPGRADE -> CORRECTIONS FOR UPGRADE 7.02 -> #OS independent which doesnt have this fix.

      Kindly provide any relevant information.

      Thanks in advance.
