Updating the Kernel for SMD

An installing process of Solution Manager Diagnostics Agent

on SAP systems using the NetWeaver SR3 Installation Master is in processing.

During the install that the kernel files for a Java

installation are deployed as part of the installation.

What is the correct way to proceed with updating the kernel files for

this Java installation.

In the Service MarketPlace, looking for kernel files for a Windows x64

installation, the SAPEXE_159-20001354.SAR and SAPJ2EE_33-

20001354.SAR were found. The SAPEXE_159 has a more up-to-date version of

the kernel files than what was originally deployed with SR3, but

doesn't this package include the ABAP kernel files as well? The

SAPJ2EE_33 package is outdated when compared to the files deployed with


where some general guidelines on updating the kernel

files for the SMD instance can be found ?




Since SMD is new and still there are a lot of unknown issues. I had seen SAP releasing so many notes. So I would suggest please wait for sometime before including SMD upgrades in your maintenance activities.

Feel free to revert back.
