Symptom Software components in SAP ERP Central Component 5.0 (SAP ECC 5.

0) Reason and Prerequisites Structure of SAP ERP Central Component 5.0 Solution Architecture SAP ERP Central Component 5.0 (SAP ECC 5.0) consists of three parts from a technical point of view, which in turn contain different software components:

The SAP ECC Enterprise Extensions consist of the EA-HR 500, EA-APPL 500, EA-RETAIL 500, EAGLTRADE 500, EA-PS 500, EA-FINSERV 500 and EA-DFPS 500 software components as well as the EAIPPE 300 software component. The SAP ECC Core 5.0 consists of the SAP_APPL 500 and SAP_HR 500 software components. SAP Web Application Server 6.40 ABAP Stack, which comprises the SAP kernel and SAP_BASIS 640 and SAP_ABA 640 software components, the SAP Basis plug-in PI_BASIS 2004_1_640, and the SAP BW 350 software component.

In addition, SAP ECC 5.0 contains the PI 2004_1_500 SAP R/3 plug-in. This ensures the integration between SAP ECC and other SAP components. The releases of the PI and PI_BASIS software components are mutually dependent. They must therefore always have the same release number, extended with the release number of the underlying software component (for example PI 2004_1_500 and PI_Basis 2004_1_640). When you upgrade the SAP R/3 plug-in into an SAP-ECC system, an upgrade of the SAP Basis plug-in must be performed in parallel. If you have already installed a SAP R/3 plug-in in your SAP R/3 or SAP R/3 Enterprise system, refer to SAP note 700779. The SAP Solution Tools plug-in (ST-PI 003C_640) is also contained in the scope of delivery.
