UPDATED as of SUM SPS16

Always refer to the latest SUM guide from SAP.

With the new SUM version (it was SPS16 when we are writing this article), there is a new method of starting up the SAP Software Update Manager (SUM). To get start, follow below steps.

Our example below is based on Windows operating system.

1. You have downloaded the latest SUM and extract it using the SAPCAR.

2. You have installed the latest SAP Host Agent in your operating system.

3. Locate the STARTUP.BAT (for Windows operating system) and execute below command.

STARTUP.BAT confighostagent SID

4. The output will be like,

**** The SID: SID is detected from ADM user. ****

**** hostagent release: 7.21 ****
**** hostagent patch number: 7 ****
**** Please check the central SUM note whether this SAP Host Agent version is sufficient for SUM operation ****

5. Take note on the following lines which basically will be the link to launch the SUM. The port 1129 for HTTPS and 1128 is for HTTP.

**** SUM Java: https://HOSTNAME:1129/lmsl/sumjava/SID/index.html ****
**** SUM ABAP: https://HOSTNAME:1129/lmsl/sumabap/SID/doc/sluigui ****
**** SUM Dual stack: https://HOSTNAME:1129/lmsl/sumjava/SID/dual.html ****

6. Now, open your web browser and paste any of the link above. Key in the sidadm user and password to access the page. Example, you want to update the SPS level of the SAP Solution Manager 7.1 SP10 – SP14. So, we will choose https://HOSTNAME:1129/lmsl/sumjava/SID/dual.html.
