Help on ESS .sca files

Former Member

Hello SDNers,

I needed some info from those who have implemented latest ESS before.

I am on:

SAP Netweaver 2004s Web AS 7.0

Enterprise Portal 7.0 SPS 12


EA HR 18

I need to get the best ESS package + WebDynpro components + patches associated with it for ESS implementation.

From Portal Content Portfolio I navigated <a href="">Here</a> and found the latest SCA file available is <b>BPERP5ESS09_0-10003288.SCA = BP ERP05 ESS 1.0 Support Package 09 </b>. This is the main ESS BP.

To get the WebDynpro components with it I navigated to SAP <i> Support Packages ->Entry by Application Group

Follow the link Support Packages and Patches -> SAP Application Components -> SAP ERP -> SAP ERP 2005 -> Entry by Component -> SAP XSS (Self Services)</i> From there I got the latest SCA <b>SAPESS09_0-20000512.SCA = SAP ESS 600 Support Package 09 </b> from SAP ESS 600 and its patch <b>SAPESS09P_3-20000512.SCA = Patch for SAP ESS 600 Support Package 09</b>

And from the same link at SAP PCUI_GP 600 <b>SAPPCUIGP09_0-20001215.SCA = SAP PCUI_GP 600 Support Package 09 </b>

I just wanted to know if based on my landscape as stated above, these SCA are the right ones for me.

Should I go for all the latest SCA files considering that we are on ECC 6.

Am I going the right way?

Thanks in advance.

Help will be appreciated.

Hi Prem,

The Software Components that you have chosen are indeed correct.

The Support Package Level of ESS should reflect the support package level of your ERP System.

For Ex: If you are on ECC 6.0 SP 08 you should go with the following .SCA files:

- BPERP5ESS08_0-10003288.SCA

- SAPESS08_0-20000512.SCA (But you can go with the latest patch for that Support Pack like SAPESS08P_9-20000512.SCA)

- SAPPCUIGP08_0-20001215.SCA

Dear Abhishek, Frank and Debashish,

Yes, I guess I'll go with the latest packages, components and patches offeres as I'm on a very high SP of Portal too.

Thanks a lot for all your help.



P.S. Duly assigned points to you.

Hey, I was trying to assign "10" to all, but it does'nt seem to work. So I assigned "10" to the first and 6, 6 to the rest.

Hello Prem,

Check out SAP Note 761266. It has the exact details about what versions of patches you need to install for ESS/MSS in ur server.

Hi Prem,

I think everything is fine. Because you are on Portal SPS12, the SAP ESS 600 Support Package 09 at least needs Portal SPS11 and EA HR 16 (you can read this in sap note 1046863).

In the past in my case, I had ESS for SPS4, patched portal to SPS10 and ESS was still working. After that I patched myERP2005 because EA HR level had to be at least 10 (or so) and then upgraded the SCA files to the corresponding level.

Hope that helps.
