Query regarding kernel upgrade

Hi All,

Soon we are going for kernel upgrade, OS is HPUX.

1) Do we need to download latest version of SAPCAR for extracting the *.SAR files?

Pls have a look on steps involved for kernel upgrade and let me know if i m missing something

1) Take backup of current kernel directory-:

cd /sapmnt/PRD/exe

cp * /tmp/backup_kernel_old

2) Download latest kernel from service maket place put it in directory latest_kernel

cd /tmp/latest_kernel

chown prdadm:sapsys *

3) Give permissions

cd /tmp

chmod 777 latest_kernel

4) Upgrade the kernel using following commands

./SAPCAR -xvf SAPEXE_* -R /sapmnt/PRD/exe

./SAPCAR -xvf SAPDB_* -R /sapmnt/PRD/exe

Please suggest me if I m missing something or anything in these steps is wrong.
