It was raining in the Saturday afternoon. I was checking a few threads in SCN, seeing whether I could help someone facing issues.
Then I found a thread where someone asked about upgrade from release 7.40 to 7.50. What!?!? I didn't realize that the SAP Netweaver 7.5 was already available!
This blog tells about my first WEBGUI execution in the new release.
The installation process
Installing a new system comprehends reading the Master Guide, the Installation Guide, downloading DVD medias, installing database... And finally install the system. Ok, this is my general/superficial assessment!
To spare time, the result I got was:
Nice! The installation went quite fast, even for the test hardware I have.
Ok, I have a new system, only green lights in SAPMMC... What else should I do before calling WEBGUI?
Let me verify a few things, then go WEBGUI!
Kernel version/patch level: Currently installed: 7.45, patch level 15:
There is a new patch level available: 22. Need to be done: update the kernel, as there are 26 changes in ITS since pl 15.
The kernel forecast for release 7.45 is available in SAP note 2199308.
If you have more than once instance in the system, then you can upgrade the kernel using RKS.
Another question was about what might prevent the UWL from working with ITS/WEBGUI in IE11. Most likely the issue is related to the rendering mode. I recommend using Standards Mode. For more inside on this topic, I recommend reading SAP note 314568.
