I noticed that P400 was released towards the end of June. Has anyone installed that yet and found any issues? We're almost at the point of deciding which version to go to (currently on 4.1 SP6) but what I'm reading about all the bugs is worrying me

In addition to the issues noted above, we discovered a MAJOR (as in causing system crashes, have to reboot daily, sometimes multiple times per day) issue with Auditing. Per support, it is being fixed in SP05 Patch 5 and is also available in SP06 Patch 01 and above.

So, unless you don't use auditing, if you are looking to update, you definitely want to go to one of those patch levels.

what database vendor / version are you using for?

in my deployment we are moving from SP3(00) to SP5 (00) due to inestability issues.

I guess I can disable Auditing just in case.

We're on Windows, running out of the box tomcat and using Microsoft SQL 2012. The problem is a coding issue in several of the .exe files, support did not indicate it was db specific.

If you are updating, I would go with the latest Patch level of whatever SP you select. I would not go to P00 level, the patches address problems/bugs with that SP, so by not installing the patches you are missing out on fixes to know issues. Plus, when you do run into issues, the first thing support is going to tell you is to update ... unless you've identified a new bug.
