Post-Installation and Configuration of Solution Manager 7.1


Dear community,

we are a SAP Channel Partner and want to offer SAP BO support; therefore I am about to set up the Solution Manager 7.1 on a Windows 2008 R2 host with Oracle Database 11g. The installation has been completed successfully and I have applied our permanent license, but performing the following post-installation steps some problems and questions have arised. Because I don't want to write a novel right here, let's begin with the first issue:

Updating the Solman, as suggested in post-installation.

I want to update my ISS to SP 04 and followed the common instructions using ESPIN and SPAM (see, for example, this thread: ).

That means, all packages have been loaded from ESPIN into SPAM. The problem is, that I have SPAM version 0039, but I get error message "you need at least version 0040" when I try to start the update queue. Also, I am not able to download a newer version of SPAM from SMP (702-0043 and 702-0045 are available there), because I need MOPZ for that (a message comes up telling me that items in my download basket have to be confirmed before I am allowed to download them), which will be available not before basic configuration during solman_setup later on.

So, what to do? Is there another way to get that 5MB SPAM update or do I have to go on with the old version?

Thanks in advance
