Kernel upgrade from version 701 to 720
Currently we have ECC 6.0 with EHP4 running on Windows server 2003+ MicroSoft SQL server 2005 database with Kernel 701 .
Now i am confused while upgrading kernel 720
I already downloded the sapexe 720 &sapexdb 720 from service market place.
I read some where we need to download SAPHOSTAGENT FILE also it will replace exsiting saposcol ,any one explain me the usage of saphostagent and how it will replace earlier saposcol.
I know the procedure of upgrading upto 701 kernel .but i am confusing kernel720 procedure.
Please suggest the procedure arre same or not kernel 701 and 720.

The Kernel 720 and above does not contian SAPOSCOL.
SAPOSCOL is now being part of SAPHOSTAGENT.
SAPHOSTAGENT is installed by default on 710 systems and above,
and this contains SAPOSCOL, ie. SAPOSCOL is integrated into
There is a document attached to note 1031096 with all the details
# 1031096 - Installing Package SAPHOSTAGENT
The following link also contains further information:
