SAP BI 4.2 in Windows Server 2008 SP2

Hello All,

My client machine runs on Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 1 and it has SAP BI 4.1 sp5 installed in it. We are planning to upgrade to BI 4.2 sp3. The PAM for SAP BI Platform 4.2 mentions only Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. So the update won't work in my current machine? Please clarify.

    Upgrade might work, but result won't be supported as the version you're planning to uprade to was never tested on your version of windows.

    please see next document

    https://support.sap.com/content/dam/library/ssp/infopages/pam-essentials/SBOP_BI_42.pdf


    your current level of OS is not supported anymore in 4.2 Version, minumin windows OS version supported is Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.

    The upgrade won't work in your current level.
