Trying to upgrade Support Package Manager



Just installed Solution Manager 7.1 on new Server running Windows 2008 R2 with MS SQL 2008 R2.

Now trying to import most up-to-date Kernel, ABAP Stack, and Java Stack using Note 1577909. Kernel worked fine. for ABAP Stack, made it through loading the OCS Packages, then tried to use the "Stack XML file" option in SAINT.

SAINT told me I need to be at least at SPAM level 0040 - currently at 0039.

Downloaded version 0043 in KD73043.SAR, used SAPCAR to create file CSN0120061532_0054818.PAT in directory usr\sap\trans\eps\in and file SIGNATURE.SMF in directory usr\sap\trans.

SAINT successfully loaded this OCS package.

When I go to SPAM and select Support Package --> Import SAP/SAINT Update, all I get is "No SPAM/SAINT update found". If I try to load it again via SPAM it says it's already loaded.

I tried to use KD73043.SAR with Support Package --> Load packages --> From Front End; it sees the SAR file and when opened allows me to Decompress it to the PAT and SMF files, and says "File 'kd73043.sar' successfully transferred, decompressed, and then deleted", but I still get "No SPAM/SAINT update found".

Any ideas how to get this new version into SAP?

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.
