Hi Danny,

Below are the steps.

1> Down load the latest kernel patch from the link

Entry by Application Group-> Additional Components->SAP Kernel->SAP KERNEL SAP KERNEL 32-BIT/SAP KERNEL 32-BIT unicode/64-BIT/64bit unicode

Teke 32bit,64bit unicode or non unicode according to your env

Take the files for your o/s hp-ux

Down load two file for your kernel

Take #Database independent and other file be according to your database

#Database independent file will be SAPEXE.SAR

File for your database will be SAPEXEDB.SAR

2) Put these files in some location on the server.

3)Take backup of of the existing kernel.

4)stop sap

5)stop oscollector SAPOSCOL

6) Unpack the file using tool SAPCAR

7) COPY the unpacked files to the kernel directory with overwright option

start saposcol and then sap

Check the new version in sm51.
