sql server 2014 installation media

Per note 1970448, Media 51050562 has both SQL4SAP framework and the SQL Server installation medium to install the SQL Server database. However I can only see 51050563 in SMP. Can i use media 51050563 to install a vanilla SQL Server 2014 and install BOBJ 4.2 SP3 on top of it.

    Hi Kalyana,

    There are some changes in the Terms and Condition for the use of SQL Server 2014 from Microsoft. For getting the SQL Server 2014 media for download at the SMP you need to speak to the SAP Rep if you are a runtime customer and have purchased the SQL license from SAP or with the Microsoft Rep if you are a non runtime customer.

    Once you have the amendment form signed by the authorized person from you organization the media will be made available.

    Please refer to below note for more details.

    Hello Kalyana,

    In the same SAP Note 1970448 you mentioned, it is described:

    "This note describes installation issues with the SQL Server 2014 RDBMS media delivered by SAP for SAP systems based on SAP NetWeaver."

    BusinessObjects is not based on SAP NetWeaver, so you might not be able to use the same RDBMS medium.

    Best regards,

    Luis Darui
