Upgrading SAP WAS 6.20 from SAPDB 7.3 to 7.4

Hi

I am trying to search for some guidelines on upgrading my SAP DB to 7.4 as mentioned in Craig's excellent weblog on patching the system.

I have gleaned so far that I must install the 7.4 version, then uninstall the 7.3 version via the SDBUNINST tool.

Would someone be able to flesh out the actual steps I have to take. Since I have spent the last couple of days applying the patches up to SP37 I don't want it to all go wrong now!

Thanks in advance.

Ian

    Hi Ian,

    just a small hint: There's an own forum regarding SAP MaxDB. Since there are the most competitive experts regarding MaxDB, this might be the best place to get an real useful answer.

    Good luck!

    Regards

    Stefan

    Ian, I had lots of issues with the database update to release 7.4 as well. My advise: continue to load all your support packages till SP47 and make a backup of the entire system.

    Up until now I have been unable to perform the database update but that did NOT prevent me from upgrading the miniWAS. Just continue applying packages and skip the database update for now. Tiest
