So why does SLD and Solution Manager need to be at the same patch levels

Hi All,

I noticed in the advertisement for the XI bootcamp in Amsterdam late last year the following comment:

"Find out why SLD and SAP Solution Manager need to be at the same patch levels..."

Does anyone know why this is a requirement? We already have the master guide telling us PI/XI, Sol Man and SLD all need to be the latest and greatest in the landscape, so I'd just like to understand why there is now a relationship between SLD and Sol Man at the patch level.

Regards,

Matt

    Hi Matt

    In Solution manager you have some monitoring options for your SAP PI/XI system. I guess thats why they want it on the same patch level.

    Dear Matt

    I think this has several reasons:

    1) Because PI/XI uses the SLD and therefor it would be recommended to keep it on the same level

    If you don't maintain the same level certain issues might occur, PI/XI having problems connecting to SLD etc there are notes for this but if you keep the same level

    you will get less issues

    2) Because in the Solution Manager there are options to synchronize data from the SLD to the solution manager

    3) Because of monitoring reasons as stated in previous post

    It a general thought that components that are connected to each other should be on the same level.

    Just as you connect a ECC 6 to a CRM 5 you want to have your components on the same level (those that exist in both systems) like the ABA and BASIS components etc...

    Reward point if usefull

    Kind regards
