Upgrade to NW 7.31 from NW 7.0

Hello all,

I am in the process of preparing for an PI 7.0 upgrade to PI 7.30 EHP1

I have downloaded the upgrade master DVD from the SAP Service Marketplace

for my OS platform - Solaris SPARC on Oracle  - media:

EXE      51042225_36      NW 7.31 Kernel, Inst.Master, Upgr.Master Solaris

SPARC64 1/3

RAR      51042225_37      NW 7.31 Kernel, Inst.Master, Upgr.Master Solaris

SPARC64 2/3

RAR      51042225_38      NW 7.31 Kernel, Inst.Master, Upgr.Master Solaris

SPARC64 3/3

I then extracted the files successfully with

unrar x <archive name(exe-file)> <targetdir>

as per note 886535

But when I go into the created 51042225 directory, there is no STARTUP

file which is needed for me to start the upgrade. I executed a search and

the STARTUP file is nowhere in the created 51042225 where it should be.

The size of the files is correct at download and I have no error messages

when I unrar the files. It finishes with "ALL OK" message.

-rw-r--r--   1 root     sapsys   1000000000 Jun 10 09:50

51042225_SOLARIS_SPARC_part1.exe

-rw-r--r--   1 root     sapsys   1000000000 Jun 10 09:51

51042225_SOLARIS_SPARC_part2.rar

-rw-r--r--   1 root     sapsys   188759365 Jun 10 09:51

51042225_SOLARIS_SPARC_part3.rar

I do not have any space issues neither.

Please advise.

Many thanks

Andreas

Hello,

You have to start the installtion as described in the guide. I have just copied the extract from the guide under the section " Starting the software update manager GUI " 

  

 

Starting the GUI on UNIX Hosts

Starting the GUI on the Host with the Primary Application Server Instance

1.

Open a new window as user <sapsid>adm.

2.

Start the GUI by executing the script <update directory>/sdt/exe/DSUGui.DŠƒ <ü

Starting the GUI on Other UNIX Hosts

1.

So that the GUI can also be used on other hosts, create a directory on this host and copy the following files to it or mount them with NFS:

NOTE

You must keep the directory structure.

<update directory>/sdt/libDŠƒ <fi <update directory>/sdt/exe/DSUGui

2.

Start the GUI by executing the script DSUGui.

--------

The initial GUI will open with 6 options . From Welcome to Summary. Under the road map step Execute Process you will get the actual EHPI road map steps like

Initilization , extraction ect . So please do not be confused. Start with EHPi installion as described in the guide.

You can get the necessary guide be following the link

Service.sapm.com/instguides ->  SAP NetWeaver -> SAP NetWeaver 7.3  -> Upgrade . In the right side of the screen you will see th below text and links. Follow then for the guide.

----

Upgrade to SAP Enhancement Package 1 for NetWeaver 7.3

----

This should help.

Varun.

Varun,

I am a step behind that. So that I can run what you suggest, the upgrade directory /usr/sap/SID/upg has to be populated. This happens by running the STARTUP script which should be is in the Upgrade Master DVD number directory. My problem is that STARTUP is not there...

Hi,

In my opinion, you need to download the latest version of SUM (1.0 SP4 perhaps).

This archive should have the STARTUP you are looking for. Check the SUM guide at:

https://websmp107.sap-ag.de/~sapidb/011000358700000783532011E Page 94

Hi all,

I have a similar problem with the next step. i am upgrading PI 7.11 to PI 7.31. SUM is up and running, source release has ebeen patched to the proper packages and kernel, all media has been downloaded and is available for SUM.

But ...In step 3 "Select Target" I have to select my target I really do not know what to do - which directory do I have to select? I use the upgrade master / upgrade export DVDs from Service Marketplace

Neither in the 731 Upgrade Guide nor in the SUM Guide I can find what I have to do here if I am using upgrade media instead of a stack file from Solman.

Hi,

You would need to provide the location of SP stack for PI 7.31 - generated via the SolMan MOPZ. Also the stack xml will be required.

The Upgrade export would not contain the latest SP stack for PI 7.31.

Thanks for the answer, but what Do I need the Upgrade Export for if I need Solution Manager anyway?

Hi Andreas,

Startup should be available in Kernel Media. Have you try to run the part1.exe in windows first, then check the content.

Cheers,

Hello Nicholas, thanks for your suggestion

I hadn't done that as I ftp everything in Unix and then used unrar. I have now run the exe in Windows and extracted the rar and exe file in my PC. The STARTUP is not in the DVD directory.
