Please help me on SAP business objects installation

We have existing BOE 4.1 environment running for A application. We want to installation new BOE environment for another B application. Please suggest us which of the below option is better:-

  • 1.Upgrade existing A BOE environment to 4.2 environment, Install 4.2 BOE environment for another B application, after that migrate objects from A application to B application.
  • 2.Install BOE 4.1 in B application , migrate content from old A BOE environment, then upgrade both environments A,B to 4.2 one by one

    Your questions only make sense if you need to have both of the apps on the same version.
    May I suggest third option : Install 4.2 for B, then move content from A to B and then if you need to - upgrade A.
    My plan has less steps and less failure chance.

    • 1. You have One upgrade, one full Install and One migration
      But if something goes wrong during upgrade - rest is on hold for a while.
      2. Install, migration, 2 upgrades.
      Migration in 4.1 is no a sure thing (4.2 greatly improved the process).
      2 separate upgrades are risky.
