Check your kernel release and patch level
Personas 3 heavily depends on SAP Kernel patch level. It`s not like this is to give you more work, Personas simply depends on core functionality that is part of the kernel. When something is fixed there, you have to update your kernel.
Select Release Notes
- I can see that my kernel is release 745 with patch level 15.
Implement required SAP Notes
As of writing this text, the required SAP Notes by Personas 3.0 SP2 are:
