Installation - BPC

Hi All,

We are running BPC 7.0 sp7 with sql 2008. Has the sql 2008 service pack 2 been tested with this release of BPC? Is sql 2008 sp2 compatible with bpc 7.0 sp7?

    Yes, BPC 7.0 will work with SP2 for SQL 2008. In general, for a major release version, Service Packs and Cumulative Updates are designed to make SQL Server work the way that it is advertised and supposed to work and the way that SAP expects it to work, so BPC should always be compatible with the latest CU released by Microsoft as long as the SQL version and service pack meet BPC minimum requirements. SQL 2008 R2 is a new major release, and is not supported with 7.0, but SQL 2008 SP2 should be fine.

    Best regards-

      I should ammend this to say that we have had at least one report of a client installing SP2 for SQL 2008 and had issues with it. SO I would recommend SQL 2008 SP1 CU 9 as the most recent update to apply, until development has a chance to take a look at it.
