Upgrade the system from BO 3.1 SP3 to SP7 for IE11

Hello Team,

Greetings !!

We are planning to upgrade the Business Objects application system from SP3 FP3.6 to SP7 FP7.1 (Windows Server) so that we can access the

application from IE11 browser. Request you to please let me know the process steps to upgrade the system.

Can we directly go to SP7 version without un-installing the current SP and FP (SP3 and FP3.6). If yes please provide the information.

As I know we can jump to only 2 patches like from SP 3 to SP5.

Also, we are on IBM DB2, so which version will be Compatible?

Request you to please provide the information. Have a good day.

Thanks,

Srikanth

    You need to install SP5 first and than SP7.

    Check PAM for compatibility.

    Hi Srikanth,

    No need to un-install any exiting service pack.

    You can update to SP5. SP3 -> SP5 OK... SP3 -> SP6 NOT ok.

    Then Update SP07

      Hi Srikanth,

      Always create new forums links for different topics.

      This helps other in need as well, to get to the thread.

      The SP7 for xcelsius is available on the same page, where you searched for FP 7.1. Just Scroll down.
