My client went 4.1 SP8 to 4.2 SP5. We've not encountered many bugs. Some reports have 2000 lines of freehand sql and they are fine. I would say, though, that you have to use the Java Applet with any freehand sql. Using the HTML viewer just doesn't work when validating or saving the SQL after a change. There is a niggle with scheduling, I've just seen one or two examples of a schedule that should kick off at a quiet time being delayed....we're monitoring that at the moment. We were getting core exception error at random, one or two a day, but that is seemingly resolved with -RequestTimeout 3600000. I like the server group exclusivity and also parallel queries on WIPS.

Been on SAP BI 4.2 SP6 for a couple weeks now and seems relatively more stable than SP5.

I forgot to say...the biggest problem with 4.2 SP5 was the promotion management wizard....it promoted content without issue but made a right pig's ear of the security on folders, user groups etc. So painful but not actually a problem post migration icon_cool.gif

Just to add that we are testing 4.2 SP5 Patch 600. Seems mostly ok but we have found an issue with the scheduling Delivery Rule 'The scheduled content contains data'. Every time it is used the scheduled report fails, even if it does contain data.

Given the number of schedules and publications that users have created we are now looking at testing SP6 instead.

Hi guys, which patch version of SAP BI 4.2 SP6 you guys had most success with? Any issues that were encountered during testing.

Looking to test 4.2 SP4 P12 or 4.2 SP6 Latest Patch
