Upgrade to NW 7.31 from NW 7.0
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
RAR 51042225_37 NW 7.31 Kernel, Inst.Master, Upgr.Master Solaris
RAR 51042225_38 NW 7.31 Kernel, Inst.Master, Upgr.Master Solaris
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.
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
Service.sapm.com/instguides -> 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.

- From the Media List for SAP EHP1 for NetWeaver 7.3 you identify the media that you need.
