SAP Kernel upgrade from 700 to 720

Dear all,

What advices can you give for Kernel upgrade ( 700 - > 720 ) on AIX 64BIT UNICODE ?

I have done before just  Kernel upgrade, but just the packages upgrade, e.g. from 700 package 190 to 333, but I think now this upgrade from 700 to 720 will be a bit different ? Or the procedure is the same ? I just download the new packages replace with the old ones ?

Thanks in advance,

J.

    Hallo,

    I can't speak for AIX but only Solaris but there the procedure hasn't changed.

    Keep in mind if you go from 7.00 to 7.20 that you have to replace the whole contents of /sapmnt/<SID>/exe rather than just patching the contents.

    Run SGEN after the restart and you should be done.

    Regards,

    Thomas.
