I need to patch our ABAP only ECC system
FROM: ECC 6.0 EHP5 Patch 6
TO: ECC 6.0 EHP5 Patch 7

it unclear to me whether I should perform the patching

the old way with just SPAM and patching the kernel manually


whether I should use SAPs Enhancement Package Installer.

what is recommended?

Hi Tony,

As you only need to apply the support package and not update to a new enhancement package, therefore you simply need to use SPAM for importing the support packages and patch the kernel manually. Only if you were implementing a new enhancement package in the system (eg. EHP6) then you would need to use SAPehpi.
