We have SAP Netweaver 2004s we have plan to upgrading to SP12.
SAP Recommended SAP IGS 7.00 SP08, we're in SP07 (SIGS) but I would like to know how to upgrade it. Because I have tried sapcar -xvf igsexe_8-10003077.sar in the exe folder (sapmnt/instance/exe) and restarted SAP but nothing change.
Help will be rewarded.

Please refer to the OSS note 737099 it address a similar problem and recommends that we kill the IGS processes. Text from the note is listed below:
IGS upgrade step fails
SAP Note Number: 737099
You want to upgrade the IGS and the installer fails during the IGS step, because the IGS is still running and so SAPCAR is not able to extract the new IGS.
IGS J2EE R3E 4.7 EXT2 upgrade patch sapcar
Reason and Prerequisites
The IGS is still running during the upgrade/patch installation
You are either patching a J2EE installation or upgrading to a R3E 4.7 EXT2 system.
Stop the IGS before running the upgrade. You can do this by killing the igswd (first), igspw, igsmux processes. Or (recommended) by using sapntkill -INT on Windows or, on Unix, executing the stopigs script which is located in the igs/bin directory (not available for IGS >= 7.00). As an alternative you can also use kill -INT on Unix to stop the IGS.
