The Update Tool Software Update Manager (SUM)

 The Software Update Manager (SUM) is a multi-purpose tool that supports various processes, such as performing a release upgrade, installing enhancement packages, applying Support Package Stacks, installing add-ons, or updating single components.

 Please visit the central page of SL toolset  http://support.sap.com/sltoolset

 

and navigate to the separate page Software Update Manager:



Here you can find the SUM central note, the SUM guide and the Download Link. 

 SUM is offered in two versions since 11.09.2017:

  • SUM 2.0 is for ABAP single stacks, targeting systems based on BASIS 7.50 and higher
    (exception: SUM 2.0 is used for ZDO even if target is BASIS 7.40 or lower)
  • SUM 1.0 is always used if the source system is either a dual-stack system, or a Java stack
  • SUM 1.0 is used for ABAP stack if target is based on BASIS 7.40 or lower

  1. trying to upgrade NW-7.50 to NW-7.52 with SUM 2.0 

    running SUM it was wasting time - in phase-2 this error occurs:  2 add-on have to be uninstalled with SAINT ??? so reset SUM and start SAINT !!??

    => https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2418498

    why SUM can not do all work around an upgrade-task (stack-xml),

    if there are some add-on to be uninstalled, why SUM can not do this ???

  2. Hello Christoph,

    The Add-ons can be un-installed with SUM as long as the un-installation was included in the Maintenance Plan transaction in Maintenance Planner, I suggest it is better to open a post in the SAP Community.
