    Upgrade to BW 7.3x - ABAP

    NetWeaver Java 7.3x is now shipped together with BW 7.3x. Mandatory you should separate

    the Java Stack prior to the Upgrade of the ABAP Backend, if not already done.

    The new split/deinstallation tool for the Java Stack is expected to be available November

    2011. If you are already in the process, consider the manual deinstallation of the Java Add-In

    until its availability.

    The BICS are moving to the upcoming SAP BusinessObjects Application Platform BI 4.x,

    which is also a prerequisite for the full usage of the BEx successor - Analysis -

    The Java component BW-IP modeler is redeveloped for BW 7.3x in ABAP HTTP, so the Java

    Server will not be used anymore for the BW-IP infrastructure in the future after BW 7.3x

    The new BI Authorization concept is now mandatory. Despite the fact that you either create a

    7.0x System beforehand to migrate the old BW Authorization, a potential Upgrade from BW

    3.5 to 7.3x would be possible.

    NetWeaver 7.0 EhP3 is merged into NetWeaver 7.3x EhP1 (there is no 7.03, only 7.31).

    All Components are using one consolidated Version of the Kernel (7.20 Unicode-EXT 64-BIT).

    For compability reasons there are non UC/non EXT Versions available (no 32-BIT anymore)

    The full (currently only limited by size of the DB) BW on HANA Support is available

    with 7.30 SP07 and 7.31 SP04

    Solution Manager pre requisites

    incorrect stack.xml can create unwanted follow up errors

    In order to successfully work with the Solution Manager to create necessary

    stack.xml, which is a new requirement in NetWeaver based upgrades the following

    checks had to be fulfilled prior to the creation of the stack.xml.

    Sufficient privileges for the s-user, which is connected to the Service Market Place (SMP)

    Updated PPMS data, to ensure the correct processing of the desired Upgrade Targets

    There is a SEM Add-On (only for the Upgrade) available with BW 7.30. The SEM (6.34) Add-

    On is available since end of Q1/2011 for all Customers. See Notes 1539356 and 1531022 for

    The direct update from BW 7.0/SEM 6.0 to BW 7.31/SEM 7.36 is possible (Note 1326576)

    An Upgrade to NetWeaver 7.31 (7.3x EhP1 equal with 7.0 EhP3) is possible, when SP02 or

    higher is available for 7.31 and the equivalent SP for SEM 7.36.

    This Combination is currently in Rampup (November 2011) and will run until End of May 2012

    There is also the BPC 10.0 Add-On available with BW 7.30 which is currently in Rampup

    (GA expected for November 2011). With NetWeaver Version there is no Windows Server

    necessary anymore (web based maintenance). See Notes 1585589 and 1620027 for details.

    It is planned with SP06 (CPMBPC 800) to be HANA enabled

    Additional Add-Ons like GRC or DMIS will be enabled for the Upgrade to NetWeaver 7.31
