Patching Kernel on iSeries-Can't find correct files.

I am trying to udate my Kernel to the latest patch and I am trying to follow these directions:

1. Download the IGSEXE.SAR package from SAP Service Marketplace into an IFS directory <dir> on your server.

You can find IGSEXE.SAR on:

SAP NetWeaver

SAP NetWeaver 2004s

Application Server Java / Application Server ABAP

SAP IGS 7.00

OS400 V5R2M0

So I downloaded igsexe_16-20004808.sar

following are steps for applying kernel fix in AS400/DB4 ECC 6.0

PART -1 Applying kernel fix.

download and copy following kernel fix to tmp folder under rootbin.

2) logon to iSeries using SIDOFR user.

3) Apply the above fix using following command

APYR3FIX SID(SID) SAVF(R3FIX700U/APYR3FIX) SAVLIB(GEN700UOPT) KRNLIB(SAPSIDUC)

APYR3FIX SID(SID) SAVF(R3FIX700U/APYSAP) SAVLIB(GEN700UOPT) KRNLIB(SAPSIDUC)

APYR3FIX SID(SID) SAVF(R3FIX700U/LODSAPKRN) SAVLIB(GEN700UOPT) KRNLIB(SAPSIDUC)

Part 2 - Apply new kernel

SAPEXE.SAR and SAPEXEDB.SAR contain full kernel (except IGS). download it from service.sap.com

Where do I find these on the SAP website and how do I know which version to grab, and do I then rename them to SAPEXE.SAR and SAPEXEDB.SAR?

Rest of this seems easy, but I am missing where to find the correct patches.

Hi,

You can login to SMP then Go to --> Download --> Support Packages -->

Support Packages and Patches - Entry by Application Group --> Additional Components --> SAP Kernel > SAP KERNEL 64-BIT UNICODE> SAP KERNEL 7.00 64-BIT UNICODE --> OS/400

There you can find the support packages.

Thanks

Sunny
