Upgrade from 4.7 to ECC6.0 EP5


We are in the process of upgrading from Enterprise 4.7 to ECC6.0.  Got a couple of questions:

1.  In the previous upgrade (4.6 to 4.7), SAP has released PREPARE script to make sure the system meet requirements prior to the upgrade.  Does SAP still provide similar tool for 4.7 to 6.0 upgrade? 

2.  Is Solution Manager required for the upgrade? 

3.  My background is ABAP/BASIS.  SAP offers 100+ training classes for upgade.  Can someone share your training experience?  Which one(s) is worth to take?

Any input will be highly appreciated.

    1. The upgrade to ERP 6.0 EHP 5 is completed with 1 single complete step. There is no separate prepare and upgrade modes of SAPup. The phases of both prepare and upgrade has been clubbed . So once you start the upgrade , it will continue till the end.

    2. Solution manager is required to generate the stack file for the upgrade using the maintenance optimizer as well as add the required software components for the upgrade into the download basket.

    3. You can go for ADM326 training course from SAP.

    • Thank you so much, Steve.  SAP is such a huge system.  It makes it so hard to find right documentation and get an overall picture without guidance or training.  I would like to take ADM326, but it's not scheduled until September.  Now I know where to start.  Thanks a lot!  -Emily
