Understanding SAP Enhancement Packages

Published on

For the foreseeable future SAP will be offering enhancement packs as a method of providing customers with the ability to add new functionality without the disruption of a system upgrade. The resulting shorter project time frame and shorter testing cycles drive down costs and simplifies management of the environment. In addition, customers benefit from the ability to turn on only the functionality which they want to implement.
However, just like a major upgrade, a smooth enhancement pack implementation requires detailed planning and testing of the steps involved. Join Tom Tearpock for this free webinar as he details the technical requirements for a successful enhancement pack implementation.

•Get an overview of the SAP maintenance/release strategy.
•Cover the enhancement pack basics:
◦What are enhancement packs and what do they do?
◦Learn the naming conventions and terminology.
•Discuss the technical details of an enhancement pack implementation including use of the EHPI tool.
•Learn about the integral relationship between Solution Manager Maintenance Optimizer and enhancement packs.

  14. 14. Saint/JSPM / SAPehpi Enhancement Package Installation NW NW 7.0 7.0 Enhancement Package Installer NW EHP1 NW NW 7.1 7.1 Enhancement Package Installer NW EHP1 ERP EHP3 ERP 6.0 ERP SAINT / JSPM 6.0 ERP EHP4 ERP 6.0 NW Enhancement Package Installer EHP1
  15. 15. SAPehpi Only for Newer EHP Is the Standard Installation Tool for SAP Enhancement package 1 for SAP NetWeaver 7.0 (and 7.1) Standard for all 64-bit Platforms SAINT/JSPM available for 32-bit Platforms Is the Standard Installation Tool for SAP Enhancement package 4 for SAP ERP 6.0 Standard for all 64-bit Platforms SAINT/JSPM available for 32-bit Platforms There is no general availability for the Installation for Enhancement Package 3 for SAP ERP 6.0 via Enhancement Package Installer (SAPehpi) Standard installation tools here are SAINT and JSPM for all OS-/DB- Platforms There was a release of SAPehpi for SAP ERP EHP3 is in preparation currently recommendation is just go to ERP EHP 4 There was a pilot phase for the implementation of SAP EHP3 for SAP ERP 6.0 via SAPehpi (EHP Installer) for a limited number of customers; now better just go to EHP4
  16. 16. Saint/JSPM vs EHPI Saint (Abap) / JSPM (Java) Can be very long running (long unavailability) System restore is the back out mechanism EHPI Repository switch Similar to upgrade processing Minimizes downtime Can back out until switch Handles both ABAP & Java NOTE: EHP support stacks incorporate base ERP system support stacks => applying EHP4 w/o switching on new functions is a means to use “repository switch” to apply support packs.

Summary EHP deliver SP & new functionality w/o full upgrade EHPs are cumulative ERP 6.0 EHPs separate numbering from NW 7.0 EHPs Had to install ERP EHP via Saint/JSPM until EHP4 Numbering is a clue e.g. ERP 60x NW 7.0x MOPZ builds the download basket & xml for EHPI => up to date Solution Manager needed ERP 6.0 EHP4 & NW 7.0 EHP1 are in GA since May 09
