    Thanks for the blog – not sure if anyone has this same confusion, but the numbers in the Basis component seem illogical:

    Netweaver 7.0 EhP3 is “731” 

    Netweaver 7.3 is “730”

    1. Why is there a “1” in the first one?

    2. Does this imply that the first one is a “higher release” than the second?

        Yes the presentation was good, but your blog really helped – especially the picture at the end.  Having said that I still think there are too many 7s 3s and 1s in the version numbers.  It might have been more clear (i.e. not having to decode as much), for an event like merging SAP_BASIS to go with 7.4.  I can’t imagine the version control repository complexities at SAP, so it’s easy to say that on a blog comment!

    Hi Boris,

    Appreciate your good work. Thanks for this.

    Please can you throw some light on what exactly should be installed, to achieve SAP ERP 6.0 EHP 6 ABAP only system on RHEL6/ Oracle11.2?

    Regards,

    Hi,

    In order to apply latest SP’s, you need to download it through MOPZ. You will also need stack xml file which you will get from MOPZ.

    Recommended method to apply latest patches is SUM. But you can also do it via SAINT.

    Thanks

    Sunny

    Hi,

    One point still not clear for me : if we upgrade ECC / CRM to NW 7.4, can we stay on NW 7.0.2 on our BW instance if we do not have any Java AS on it, or is that mandatory to upgrade our BW NW instance to 7.3, 7.31 or 7.4 ?
