Overview:


 

In addition to the comprehensive documentation of Software Provisioning Manager 1.0 composed by boris.zarske, here on SCN, this post strives to bring out the difference between the two offered variants of SWPM and to help you decide which SWPM variant is to be used for provisioning desired SAP Product/Release.

 

 

Background:


 

Software Provisioning Manager provides the latest SAPInst version for provisioning various SAP Products among all the possible releases available.

 

Following two variants of Software Provisioning Manager are offered:

 

  • 70SWPM10SPXX*.SAR => Software Provisioning Manager 1.0 SPXX for NetWeaver 7.0x

  • SWPM10SPXX*.SAR => Software Provisioning Manager 1.0 SPXX for NetWeaver higher than 7.0x


 

 

So, what is possibly the reason behind having two variants of SWPM?

 

As we understand that SAP Solutions/Products (well, most of them) are based on SAP NetWeaver Platform and the major NetWeaver platforms are 7.0, 7.3, 7.4 etc (Along with the combined EHPs i.e. 7.0x/7.3x and 7.1/7.2 in case of PI / Solution Manager), so this is the driving factor in nutshell.

 

70SWPM10SPXX*.SAR is for Products Based on SAP NetWeaver 7.0 Platform

 

SWPM10SPXX*.SAR is for Products Based on Platform other than NetWeaver 7.0 i.e. NetWeaver 7.1/ 7.2/ 7.3/ 7.4 & HANA

 

 

Objective:


 

Many a times I myself I have faced the challenge to correctly determine the SWPM variant in order to provision particular SAP Product/Release. I also observed here in SAP NetWeaver Administrator many a times there are lots of queries regrading the SWPM Version, Link to the SWPM Download Media, Unable to find particular SAP Product in SWPM and likewise.

 

So I thought I would write this blog with that intention, to provide a handy reference so as to determine the correct SWPM variant  for provisioning particular SAP Product/Release.

 

I myself have found this very useful, so as to avoid the gap of determining the required SWPM variant and speeding up the Provisioning process.

The classification of particular SAP Product/Release to the SWPM variant is intended to change over time as the latest version of SWPM will provide the support for latest products, versions and supported platforms.

 

It is always recommended to use the latest version of SWPM Tool.

 

I have used following SWPM Versions (SWPM Support Pack & Patch) for the above information and I will try my best to keep it up to date as in when new SAP Product Release happens:

 

  • 70SWPM10SP04_4-20009701.sar => SWPM 1.0 SP04 for NW 7.0x (January 2014)

  • SWPM10SP04_4-20009701.SAR => SWPM 1.0 SP04 for NW higher than 7.0x (January 2014)


 

 

With this I leave it to you to for your suggestions & feedback.

 

Best Regards,

Akshay
