Hi Experts,

I'm Trying to Install SAP Information Steward on Windows Server 2012 VM, I have already installed SAP BI 4.1 Client tools on my machine but the issue I'm facing is in the Prerequisite Window of SAP information steward installer. Rather than detecting SAP BI its detecting SAP IPS. it's not detecting SAP BI in the prerequisite window. I don't want to install SAP IPS. instead, i want to use SAP BI. I went through the installation document but that didn't help please kindly revert me back with the solution. Data service 4.2 is installed already.

Thank you.

You're trying to install IS 4.2 SP9 on a system running DS 4.2 SP8. That will not work.

Also, IS 4.2 SP9 is not compatible with any BIP 4.1 version. Hence the error message.

Refer ro SAP Note 1740516 for compatibility details.

It worked.

I just installed IS SP8.

but in the note it is given that SAP BIP 4.1 SP5 + DS 4.2 SP8 + IS 4.2 SP8 = not certified

will this create any issue in future?

Thanks for your Reply Drik.


The note is clear:

Combinations of DS/IS and BI/IPS that have not been certified. Do not use these combinations.

Not certified means not tested and approved by SAP. It doesn't necessarily mean that the combination won't work, but you won't get any support when things go wrong.
