SLD Content (Model Version and SAP_CR) Update

If you are getting an error like “Cannot perform the selected import” while loading “CIM Model” or “CIM Data” on SAP NW SLD (System Landscape Directory) because of the version situation, then you need to update related model version and the content of your system…

Error situation should be like ;

SLD Content (Model Version and SAP_CR) Update

First step is checking the current version from the below address ;

SLD –> Administration –> Details –> Data 

SLD Content (Model Version and SAP_CR) Update

In our system ;

Model Version : 1.6.43

SAP_CR Version :  11.0 

SAP recommends that we always use the latest version of SAP CR Content, therefore our aim is upgrade our Model and the SAP_CR versions to the latest version,

For this, following OSS note is needed ;

According to this note, we have to follow below sequence to reach latest version easily, by the way during to operation no downtime needed.

SAP Content download location is ;

https://support.sap.com/en/my-support/software-downloads.html –> “Support Packages & Patches” –> letter C 

–> SAP CR CONTENT

Firstly, we need to download current version of the “CIM Model” , to do this we need to go “SAP CR CONTENT xxxx” (highest available year) with the file name “cimsap….zip”.

Important point is; always we have to  import the CIM model “cimsap….zip” before “CRDelta….zip”.

In our case, we have to download “cimsap141604_0-80003581.zip”
