Installing KM on existing EP 6.0 SP11 system

Former Member

Hi Friends

A) We're running EP 6.0 SP11 on top of J2EE engine stack SP11, we have a requirement to install KM to our dev systems, our installation media is for SR1, I want to know if I can proceed with installing KM in this environment & later upgrade our KM from SP9 to SP11(after downloading the SP11 for KM from SAP marketplace). I heard a comment that we need to go back to SR1 & install portal & KM together. (This is something which is out of question for us, so I want to seek your opinion). Has anybody had a similar experience, if yes pls let me know how you installed KM

Also pls let me know if there is some SAP notes/document on the same which contains SAP's recommendation in terms of installing KM on an existing Portal system.

B) For applying SP11 for CM+colloboration 6.0_640, SAP NW04, SP stack 11 guide mentions about 4 files

1. EP6KMC<SP>_<PL>.SAR,

2. EP6CTRL<SP>_<PL>.SAR,

3. EP6TOOLS<SP>_<PL>.SAR &

4. SAPINST<SP>_<PL>.SAR

For applying SP11 for Portal Platform 6.0_640, SAP NW04, SP stack 11 guide mentions about 4 files

1. EP6CTRL<SP>_<PL>.SAR,

2. EP6TOOLS<SP>_<PL>.SAR

3. EP6PORTAL<SP>_<PL>.SAR &

4. SAPINST<SP>_<PL>.SAR

It appears to me that the files EP6CTRL<SP>_<PL>.SAR, EP6TOOLS<SP>_<PL>.SAR & SAPINST<SP>_<PL>.SAR are the same as the ones used for applying SP11 for Portal, can anybody confirm if these 3 files are common for applying SP11 for Portal & CM.

Thanks & Rgds,

Abhishek

I was able to install KM SP9 on Portal SP11. Please remember, Portal is just a app running on WebAS. KM is another application runs on WebAS and talks to Portal. I do not see any hard dependency unless KM says there is one.

Our installation is successfull and no issues.

There is no need to install Portal and KM together. I am very sure about it.

You can install KM and TREX after you install Portal.

Hi Abhishek,

The 3 files EP6CTRL<SP>_<PL>.SAR, EP6TOOLS<SP>_<PL>.SAR & SAPINST<SP>_<PL>.SAR are same for both Portal and CM. We have upgraded our system too this way and faced no issues.

Hi Abhishek, This is correct.

You will need this files to install Portal Patches too.

(For KM Patches you won't need them)
