Upgrade to NW 7.31 from NW 7.0

Hello all,

I am in the process of preparing for an PI 7.0 upgrade to PI 7.30 EHP1

I have downloaded the upgrade master DVD from the SAP Service Marketplace

for my OS platform - Solaris SPARC on Oracle  - media:

EXE      51042225_36      NW 7.31 Kernel, Inst.Master, Upgr.Master Solaris

SPARC64 1/3

RAR      51042225_37      NW 7.31 Kernel, Inst.Master, Upgr.Master Solaris

SPARC64 2/3

RAR      51042225_38      NW 7.31 Kernel, Inst.Master, Upgr.Master Solaris

SPARC64 3/3

I then extracted the files successfully with

unrar x <archive name(exe-file)> <targetdir>

as per note 886535

But when I go into the created 51042225 directory, there is no STARTUP

file which is needed for me to start the upgrade. I executed a search and

the STARTUP file is nowhere in the created 51042225 where it should be.

The size of the files is correct at download and I have no error messages

when I unrar the files. It finishes with "ALL OK" message.

I do not have any space issues neither.

Please advise.

Many thanks

You have to start the installtion as described in the guide. I have just copied the extract from the guide under the section " Starting the software update manager GUI " 



Starting the GUI on UNIX Hosts

Starting the GUI on the Host with the Primary Application Server Instance


Open a new window as user <sapsid>adm.


Start the GUI by executing the script <update directory>/sdt/exe/DSUGui.DŠƒ <ü

Starting the GUI on Other UNIX Hosts


So that the GUI can also be used on other hosts, create a directory on this host and copy the following files to it or mount them with NFS:


You must keep the directory structure.

<update directory>/sdt/libDŠƒ <fi <update directory>/sdt/exe/DSUGui


Start the GUI by executing the script DSUGui.


The initial GUI will open with 6 options . From Welcome to Summary. Under the road map step Execute Process you will get the actual EHPI road map steps like

Initilization , extraction ect . So please do not be confused. Start with EHPi installion as described in the guide.

You can get the necessary guide be following the link ->  SAP NetWeaver -> SAP NetWeaver 7.3  -> Upgrade . In the right side of the screen you will see th below text and links. Follow then for the guide.


Upgrade to SAP Enhancement Package 1 for NetWeaver 7.3


This should help.
