    1.1 About this Document

    Purpose

    This document describes the preparation and follow-up activities that you need to perform when you update your SAP system to SAP NetWeaver 7.4 ABAP or SAP NetWeaver 7.4 ABAP including Support Release 1 (SR1) or 2 (SR2). It also describes the preparation and follow-up activities that you need to perform when you apply Support Package Stacks on top of SAP NetWeaver 7.4 ABAP (or subsequent Support Release).

    For clarity and readability, the generic term update is used in this document in the context of release upgrade, enhancement package installation and Support Package Stack update.

    As of November 2014, the generic term "product instance" replaces the terms usage type and technical usage for SAP systems based on releases 7.3 including enhancement package 1 and higher. For more information, see SAP Note 1877731.

    This document supplements the document Update Guide Update of SAP Systems Using Software Update Manager which includes general planning, preparation and follow-up activities, information about using the Software Update Manager, and troubleshooting information.

    Integration

    In addition to this guide, you need the following documents:

  • Update

    For clarity and readability, the generic term update is used in this document as a collective term for all the software logistics processes that you can perform using the Software Update Manager (such as performing release upgrades, installing enhancement packages, or updating a system with Support Package Stacks).

    Usage Type, Technical Usage, and Product Instance

    The term product instance replaces the terms usage type and technical usage for SAP systems based on SAP NetWeaver 7.3 including enhancement package 1 and higher. For more information, see SAP Note 1877731. Note that there is no terminology change for older releases and all mentioned terms can be used as synonyms.

    1.3 SAP Notes

    To prepare and perform the update of your SAP system, you require some additional information that is not included in this document. This information is in a range of SAP Notes in SAP Support Portal (service.sap.com/notes), some of which you have to read before you start with the preparations. When you actually perform the update, you may need information from some additional SAP Notes. These SAP Notes are named at the appropriate places in this document.

    SAP Notes for Preparing the Update

    You have to request the following SAP Notes from SAP Support Portal before you start the update process:

    Central Software Update Manager Note

    Application-specific update Note: 1751237

    SAP Note for your database

    Since these SAP Notes are updated regularly, make sure that you always use the latest version.

    Other SAP Notes

    As well as the SAP Notes you need for the preparation, this document also refers you to other SAP Notes that contain additional information. The following list contains these SAP Notes:
