Dear Experts,

I planed to upgrade my R/3 4.0B to ECC 6.0 but concerning about the upgrade route. Can I direct upgrade from 4.0B to ECC 6.0 in one time OR I have to do more steps, i.g. 4.0B to 4.7 Enterprise, then up to ECC 6.0?

Have any body got the experience like this?

Best regards,

Hello Imran,

One thing about Country Version. We are using Thai Country Version in 4.0B. Do we have to concern about this topic or not?

You will need to

- upgrade to ECC 6.0

- migrate to Unicode

You must not use the system after the upgrade withouth being on Unicode since Thai is no more suppported on non-Unicode systems.

Yes you are correct.

We need to first upgrade oracle to 9i..

And then from 9i upgrade it to 10g.

Then go for ECC 6.0

You can find the relevent guides in the link for installation guides above.

Hello,

As of now you can use the SAP Upgrade RoadMap in the Solution Manager which will be used using Maintenance Optimizer.

This will save your lot of time in applying Support Packs etc..

after your technical server upgrade..

To find the link you go in Service Market place in Upgrade

Dear Imran,

We using 4.0B on Sun Solaris 7.18 and Oracle 8.1.7

This mean I have to upgrade my Oracle to 10g first and then go direct to ECC 6 at new machine with the latest Solaris version. Is this right?

Hi,

What is the operating system you are using??

Which is your database? Wht is the version of your database?

Assuming windows, you can following these steps on windows.

1. If you are using lower versions of windows then you would need to migrate the hardware to win2k3.

Please find the below link to find documents on migration.

Depending upon the type of your database on host and target system, you need to use homogenous or heterogenous system copy method to transfer the data.

2. If you are using oracle, you need to upgrade oracle to 10g first and then upgrade SAP to ECC 6.0.

Please find the upgrade guides from below mentioned link

Please get back if you need any more information.
