Procedure documentationStart Maintenance Optimizer for Product Version Locate this document in the navigation structure


There are standalone product versions (for example, SAP ERP 6.0) and add-on product versions, which require another product version as foundation for their installation and operation (for example, EHP5 for SAP ERP 6.0).

For standalone product versions that are assigned to a product system, you can start a Maintenance Optimizer transaction directly from the product system editor.

The Maintenance Optimizer reads the data from the specified product version, and suggests files and systems for maintenance.


Proceed as follows:

  1.   SAP Solution Manager: Work Centers   Solution Manager Administration   Landscape   Product Systems  .

    (Alternatively, you can directly access the Landscape Management Database with transaction LMDB.)

  2. Select a product system and choose Display.

  3. On the Product Versions tab in the Product System Overview, choose the Create Transaction link for a product version.

    If transactions have been started already, you can first view them and decide whether you want to restart the existing transaction or if you want to create a new one.

    A Maintenance Optimizer transaction opens in a new window. Follow the guided activity. For more information, see the Maintenance Optimizer help or see Maintenance Optimizer in the SAP Help Portal.
