SAP BW Upgrade from 7.0 to 7.4: Compatibility, Migration Checklist


Hello Experts,

We are planning to upgrade our BI system from 7.0 to 7.4. Currently we are running BI on DB2 9.7 and intend to run the upgraded BI in same DB or some latest version of DB2.

Can we install BI 7.4 on DB2(As we have no plan to implement HANA in near future)?

Also, can you please share any checklist containing the necessary pre and post upgrade activities?

Regards,

Subir

    Hello,

    We are facing the same enviromment.

    We try to upgrade BW from 7.0 to 7.4.

    First we had o upgrade DB2 to the latest version,

    Then upgrade BW to 7.0 to 7.4,

    Then apply support Package 7

    Then apply support Package 9

    Apply some notes (including some notes that DB2 responsible had to change some cards in DB2)

    In some cases, re-activate BI Content (speccialy when Query Variables do not worked as expected).

    Do you have your working plan for this upgrade? Can you share with us?
