    is this nice docu still valid for all netweaver installations ? for example:  NW-7.31 and NW-7.40 ?

    or

    shall we have to install new updates of addons (ST-PI and ST/A-PI)  only with SUM ?

    and that means:

    no longer usage of SPAM + SAINT for updating ?  😯 😯 😯

      Hi Christoph,

      I think you are asking for SAP Note 🙂

      1803986 – Rules to use SUM or SPAM/SAINT to apply SPs for ABAP stacks

      I hope it helps.

      PS : try the links (provided in my signature) to our troubleshooting guide and wiki space . You would find a lot of useful information there. Need help with troubleshooting guides or you would like to have
      some content on any specific topics related to upgrade/ehpi/sp update, leave the feedback on wiki page or tag me in the post . 🙂

      Best Regards,

        Hi,

        thanks for the note-no and other links

        (the 2. link to scn.sap.com did not work)

        correct is:    Software Logistics

        but sapnote 1803986 says nothing about update of ST-PI and ST-A/PI components/add-ons

        if i want to update only these 2 components ( as in early-watch report required )

        is it in NW-7.40 ABAP still possible to do that with SPAM/SAINT ?

        as in sapnote http://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/539977

        there is mentioned SPAM as update-tool for ST-PI

          • ST-PI 740
          Auslieferungstermin: 15.09.2014 (Default Release)
          Einspieltool: SAINT

            Hi Christoph,

            We had the very same question here, and the answer is that yes, you can still update ST-PI & ST-A/PI with SPAM/SAINT, however, if the version of SPAM/SAINT is not recent enough to apply ST-PI & ST-A/PI (if you try, you’ll get an information message to this effect), then you must first update SPAM/SAINT with SUM.

            Regards,

            Ross
