Upgrade to EHP5 - "Exit now the program and continue after SPAU has been finished"


Hello SAP Community,

I'm towards the end of an upgrade from myERP 2004 to ERP 6.0 EHP5. I'm in the phase where I have to do the adjustments in the SPAU transaction. Later I'm going to upgrade another, identical system in the same landscape and I would like to use the same adjustments there.

This SPAU is going to take a while so I would like to do what the SapUp suggest: exit the SapUp program and continue after SPAU has been finished. But if I select Exit and press "Continue", the SapUp doesn't exit: instead, I get the message that the phase has failed; then if I press "Next", I get back to the same screen as before.

So what am I supposed to do to exit the SapUp, so that I can resume it later from the same step where it stopped? I see there's a menu option "Stop Upgrade" but I'm not sure it does what I want.

Thanks, kind regards.
