Not able to increase SAP kernel release 6.40 patch level from 43 to 71
I have to update SAP kernel release 6.40 patch level from 43 to 71 but not able to do.I am running solution manager 3.2 on Oracle 9i and Win-2003 OS.
Please provide the solutions .
I have downloaded kernel patch from Path at Service matket place ---<b>Support Packages and Patches" SAP Technology Components" SAP SOLUTION MANAGER" SAP SOLUTION MANAGER 3.2" Entry by Component" SAP Solution Manager-SAP KERNEL 6.40 32-BIT UNICODE-Windows Server on IA32 32bit-ORACLE-
SAR SAPEXEDB_71-20000254.SAR Kernel Part II (for Basis 640/620) 71</b>
I followed following Steps:
1. Copied the patch into a temporary directory on system.
2. Unpacked the downloded SAPEXEDB_71-20000254.SAR Kernel Part II (for Basis 640/620) 71 patch .
3. Stoped the SAP System using MMC.
4. Saved the kernel directory by backup or by copying into a separate backup directory. (\usr\sap\<SAPSID>\sys\exe\run)
5. Re-started the server.
After logging again in SAP client 000 on checking found server patch level coming same as previous one .
Its not got updated and due to this in Tcode- <b>SPAM</b> I am getting error message :<b>'The OCS package SAPKITL318 requires a kernel with Release 640 and patch number 71. The kernel you are currently using has a lower version.'</b>.
