Preparing for PCOE: Latest SP Stack for SAP Solution Manager

The requirement for Sell Partner COE Audit is to run the latest version of SAP Solution Manager or SPS -2.

Please be aware that as of July 1, 2019 the latest Support Pack for SAP Solution Manager 7.2 is SPS 9. That means SPS 6 and lower will no longer be accepted for future Partner Center of Expertise (PCOE) applications.

To ease the transition, partners can still apply for PCOE audit with SPS 6 until August 31, 2019. From September 1, 2019 only SPS 7 and higher will be accepted.

To avoid last minute changes and pressure on our partners, as well as keep up-to-date with SAP  latest innovations, it is always recommended to use the latest SPS on your SAP Solution Manager. Find the schedules for maintenance deliveries (latest Support Packages and SP Stacks) here: Schedules for maintenance deliveries (Support Packages and Support Package Stacks) | SAP Support Portal

The Mainstream Maintenance for SAP Solution Manager 7.1 ended on December 31st 2017. From January 1, 2018 onward, only the latest version of SAP Solution Manager 7.2 or SPS -2 will be compliant with PCOE requirements. Refer to following article for details: SAP Solution Manager 7.2 for VAR-D Support

  • We already have Solman 7.1, with incidents and some other data. It would be for us to install Solman 7.2 from scratch, instead of performing an upgrade. Do you know if this is an issue for PCoE Certification?
