Sum update


I'm reading the note 1676665

3. ABAP, ABAP+Java: Immediately after the installation, configure the transport management system (TMS) and then use the Software Update Manager (SUM) to apply the required SAP Support Package Stack (SPS) defined in SAP note 1651862 for your SAP product.

In general, the ABAP SP level of the installation export is not sufficient for running on SQL Server 2012.

    1. a) Do not apply the SPAM update manually. The SPAM update is part of the stack that will be used by the SUM Tool.
    1. b) Use the SUM tool to apply the required support package stack. The tool has specific fixes and workarounds that are needed for the support package application on SQL Server 2012i

I can't use the SPAM tcode to update the system on MSSQL 2012? I need the stack xml file for abap patches?

Thanks a lot.

Yes, You should update it with SUM. You can also upgrade system with SUM by preparing download directory manually without stack xml file but in this process, you need to verify all dependencies that's why it is recommended to use stack xml file.
