As a prep you may like to empty the download basket for your S-000 user so that any files added to the download basket are meant for this task and will help to ensure that only the required files are included.

As a prep you may like to empty the download basket for your S-000 user so that any files added to the download basket are meant for this task and will help to ensure that only the required files are included.

You need to login to Maintenance Planner to access system assigned to your S-user. Please ensure landscape data is uploaded to SAP support portal via LMDB of SAP Solution Manager. The system that you are converting has to be defined in OSS under your customer ID. The diagram below shows the Maintenance planner cloud service and how it integrates with Customer system.

The source system data (1) is used to generate (2) stack.xml, used for (3) Installation and (4) Upgrade and then system is (5) registered with Solution Manager. The system data is synchronized with Landscape Management Database (LMDB). From LMDB the data is (6) uploaded to customer profile in SAP support portal. (7) Data Fetch occurs using Solman daily job – “Landscape Fetch”.

If there is issue in replicating you may be asked to apply Note 2186164 – Problem in replicating systems to Maintenance Planner

TIP: This data based on Customer Number is used by Maintenance Planner for all planning activities. Also ensure you use same Customer Number to define system in sapnet. Use the S-user id of this Customer Number.

      Thanks for your excellent blog.

      In your screenshot of "In the next screen enter SID = S4H; select Target Version = SAP S/4HANA 1809; Target Stack = Initial Shipment Stack and Click on Next."  I can see that there is NO "Target Product Instances" option is available.

      Can you please confirm the current maintenance planner for S/4 HANA 1809, "Target Product Instance" option is still available??

      I can see on two options available currently:

      Install a New System:

      Target Version:

      Target Stack

       

      Please confirm.  Thanks in advance

      Hi Mahesh,

      Thank you for your great blog !

      I try to integrate LCAPPS for HANA version 34 but the newest LCAPPS that I find is 31 which is rejected. Where did you find version 33 ? I am installing on Linux on power but x86_64 holds the same versions up to 31.

      Thank you and kind regards

      Fredi
