Sol Man 7.1 SR1 vs SPS

All, I have read the media guide and understand that you can use SR1 or SPS for installation. I have few questions.

1) How do I know what SP stack would be my system if I install SAP SOLMAN 7.1 SR1?

2) What are these - SPS4 and SPS13 - in the marketplace?

3) How do I use the SPS files during install? I am confused seeing the SPS files in the installation media.

Hello Jim,

Answers below to your questions -

1) How do I know what SP stack would be my system if I install SAP SOLMAN 7.1 SR1?

Ans - SR1 in case of Solution Manager 7.1 is equivalent to SPS4. So by default your base installation if SPS4.

2) What are these - SPS4 and SPS13 - in the marketplace?

These are SP stack updates for current Solution Manager installation.

SPS4 to be used in case you have a older SPS release installed on your current Solution Manager like SPS1 / SPS2 / SPS3.

SPS13 to be used to update SR1 / SPS4 to have the latest patch set installed in your system.

3) How do I use the SPS files during install? I am confused seeing the SPS files in the installation media.

You need to first use SWPM to install Solution Manager SR1 using the Installation Export DVD

Once your installation is complete, you need to use SUM to update your Solution Manager SR1 to SPS13.

Hope this helps.

Best Regards,

Tanmeya
