Kernel 721 (EXT) goes out of maintenance with SP Stack Kernel PL 1400. No further kernel patches will be produced. Kernel 721 patches are still available for download in the archive area of SAP ONE Support Portal.Kernel 722 (EXT, EX2) can be used instead as downward compatible kernel (DCK) for a SAP NetWeaver 7.0, 7.01, 7.02, 7.03, 7.3 and 7.31 64-bit installation. For details see SAP Notes 2083594 - SAP Kernel Versions and SAP Kernel Patch Levels and 1744209 - SAP Kernel 720, 721 and 722: Versions and Kernel Patch Levels.
As a precaution the affected SAPFTP kernel patches have been revoked from SAP Support Portal and replaced with the previously available version. Should you have the above-mentioned versions installed, you can downgrade SAPFTP as a workaround to prevent the issue. We are working on new versions of SAPFTP to be delivered soon.
The last SP stack kernel for the 745 kernel has been released. Kernel 745 PL #900 can be downloaded from the archive area of SAP Software Download Center. Refer to SAP Note 2765380 for information on fixes included in this stack kernel.
This may cause runtime errors of type MOVE_TO_LIT_NOTALLOWED_NODATA to occur in ABAP programs where they didn't occur with previous kernel versions.A kernel patch that restores the old behavior for NW version 7.40 will be released within the next few days. For details see SAP Note 2312807. As an alternative and in case you are already using kernel version 7.45 or higher, ABAP corrections are available for most common issues, refer to SAP Notes 2117573, 2111563 and 2267164.
Unfortunately, due to an error in the dbsl library (Oracle only) the system reports a SICK message, saying that the current Oracle version is not supported by the kernel. This SICK message is wrong and can be ignored. This happens for lib_dbsl patches 213 -217. A forthcoming patch for the lib_dbsl will avoid this message.Please refer to SAP note 2363994 for details.
By mistake SAPEXE and SAPEXEDB archives have been available for Kernel 742 PL 414 on the support portal for a short time. As PL 414 is supposed to be only a regular patch (and not a stack kernel for which SAPEXE, SAPEXEDB will be published), these packages have been revoked meanwhile and replaced by the corresponding DW packages. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
There are issues with the RFC delta manager inside the kernel. External clients may get stuck. As a precaution the affected kernel patches have been revoked from ServiceMarketPlace. The correction causing the issue has been retracted. A new version of Kernel 722 PL 118 with compile time on May 19th as well as Kernel 742 PL 413 has been published.
The last SP stack kernel for the 741 kernel version has been released today. Kernel 741 PL #300 can be downloaded from the archive area of SAP Support Portal. Refer to release note 2207362 for information on fixes included in this stack kernel.
The SAP Kernel 741 reached its end of maintenance, see note 1969546 . We will continue to deliver regression fixes during July and a final stack kernel 741 PL#300 in August. After that corrections will be delivered through kernel 742 patches.
SAP kernel 722 has been released for customers today. The first shipment (Kernel 722 PL#4) can now be downloaded from SAP Support Portal. With this a new release cycle has been established for 72X kernel versions that can be used with all SAP NetWeaver releases 7.00-7.31:
Kernel 722 can be applied manually as a kernel patch, see Note 2115344 - Installation of Kernel 722 (EXT) for detailed instructions. Options to apply Kernel 722 during upgrade/update are outlined in Note 2133909.
As announced previously, SP Stack kernels for 741 and 742 kernel versions have been updated. 741 PL#201 replaces 741 PL#200 and 742 PL#101 replaces 742 PL#100. New SP stack kernels can be now downloaded from SAP Support Portal, following fixes are included:
A most excellent piece of documentation. I wish I had seen this prior to just completing my landscape's 7.21 kernel upgrade, as you would have saved me many hours of work. The good news is that my process closely followed yours, so it is good to feel validated in that respect.
I interpreted 'Note 19466 - Downloading SAP kernel patches' to say that it was okay to apply the latest patch level to the kernel as long as you use the dw archive (the programs bundled in this archive need to always be synched to the same level).
Correct on both points. The latter tells me that SGEN should probably be in this doc since it is an upgrade from 7.1x to 7.21. No biggie, as waiting to log in and all those 'Load format not valid' messages, once you do get in, will trigger about any basis person to run SGEN. As for the dw package, I'm curious who does and who doesn't use it. The current dw archive jumps the SAPEXE kernel level from patch 100 to patch 130. A fairly large jump.
Updates happen by installing a new version over an older version. See also the installation instructions included in the JCo SDK download archive. In general, a new SAP Java Connector patch level is downwards compatible to the previous patch levels of the same release.
The SAP Java Connector (JCo) and the SAP Java IDoc Library (JIDocLib) are available free of charge and can be downloaded from the SAP Support Portal. The license terms are pointed out on the download pages and in the documentation of these components.
For regular maintenance, we recommend that you import Support Package stacks (you can find further information under -stacks). A Support Package stack consists of advanced kernel patches ("kernel stacks"), which are offered as a complete package. A kernel stack is made up of the Database independent archive "SAPEXE", as well as the Database dependent archive "SAPEXEDB". On the service marketplace, they are labeled as "Kernel part I" / "Kernel part II" with the specification of the stack version (for example "Stack Q3.2004"). Only import other patches if you have an actual problem.
The existing recommendation continues to apply for the Kernel 3.1 (_EXT) to 4.5B (_EXT), for which no kernel stacks are available: regularly import the Packages DW.SAR, R3TRANS.SAR, TP.SAR as well as LIB_DBSL.SAR. Only import all other patches if you have an actual problem.
When using the SAP J2EE Engine 6.20 in combination with a 6.20 ABAP backend with SAP Kernel 6.20, the following:When importing a dw patch, the fast RFC interface (via which part of the communication between the SAP J2EE Engine and the SAP Kernel is effected) must be updated consistently. For this reason, the dw patch contains the Archive FRFCLIB32.SAR (for 32-bit JAVA VM) or FRFCLIB64.SAR (for 64-bit JAVA VM). To update the fast RFC interface consistently, this archive has to be unpacked into the "os_libs" directory of each J2EE instance.UNICODE kernel as of 6.20
As of 6.20, a so-called Unicode kernel (Directory "SAP KERNEL 6.20 32/64-bit UNICODE" is offered for download. This kernel is exclusively suited for Unicode systems. It must not be used for normal "non-Unicode" systems under any circumstances.Kernel 6.40 downward-compatible for 6.20 / 6.10
The kernel for 6.40 is downward-compatible with 6.x so that the kernel of the current can be used to eliminate kernel errors without the SAP System itself having to be upgraded to the new . Use the current 6.40 patch kernel for troubleshooting because patches for lower 6.20 kernels will only remain available for a short time.However, it is important that each patch always matches a particular kernel . For example, you cannot use individual 6.40 executables together with older kernel versions. Therefore, if you want to import a 6.40 patch and are still working with an older kernel, you have to exchange the kernel beforehand.Refer to 664679,"Installing a 6.40 kernel into a system with 6.10/6.20 Web AS".Kernel 4.6D / 4.6D_EXT is downward-compatible with 4.6A/B/C
To use the downward-compatible 4.0B_COM kernel with 4.0A systems, the same steps apply as those described above. "Installation of 4.0B kernel with 4.0A DB"Kernel 3.1I_COM / 3.1I_EXT is downward-compatible as of 3.0CTo use the downward-compatible 3.1I kernel with 3.x systems, the same steps apply as those described above."Installation of 3.1I kernel with 3.0C/D/E/F ,3.1G/H-DB".Patch formatsThe patches of the individual programs are ".SAR" SAR or CAR archives. In the Software Center, the patch level and further information are displayed for every patch (link "Info" in analogy with the former "Info file" on sapserv). Always use the patch with the highest version number.
Both archives are always needed to update a kernel.For regular system maintenance, the newest SAPEXE / SAPEXEDB packages (kernel stacks) should generally be used.dw.SAR kernel patches
In addition to the "disp+work" kernel runtime, a number of programs are contained in the dw.SAR CAR archives which, because of existing dependencies, must always be used in consistent versions. Link "Info" in the Software Center has the same contents as is shown when calling "disp+work -V". The link contains information about the SAP and database version and the kernel patch level.
Note: As of 4.6A, the "RSYN" has been integrated into the "disp+work"kernel and is no longer stored in a separate "rsyn.bin" file. Therefore, the "rsyn.bin" file is no longer contained in the patch either..SAR archive files
RHEL 8.7 introduces a number of new capabilities, including the ability to view and manage system-wide crypto policies for consistency and reduction of risk, label and optionally encrypt data in sosreports generated in the web console, install only kpatch updates with improved kernel live patching workflow in the web console, download installation media when creating a new virtual machine within the web console, and edit custom firewall services. 350c69d7ab
