Post subject: Pointing to OLD CMS database with new version of BI

We have an issue while upgrading the SP4 in our environment related to schedule due to which CMS was crashing as soon as we install SP4. SAP informed it's a product bug which unable to overwrite the issue.

Apart from that other issues we have. so, we plan to build a new system from scratch with SAP BI 4.2 SP4 with patch 8 which will fix the CMS crash issues and other.

so, can we point SAP BI 4.2 SP4 patch 8 to sap bi 4.2 sp2 cms database? will the cms database will be updated after sia restart by itself with the latest details.

Here is a suggestion,

Build a brand new 4.2 SP5 System, new CMS etc?

Use Upgrade Management Tool to move your entire old Content/Security to new system?

SAP informed they have removed the functionality to the incremental upgrade from 4.x to 4.x using UMT.

If you go to 4.2 SP5, there is a new tool called "Promotion Management Wizard" that is similar to the old Import Wizard that can be used to move content from an older 4.x system into 4.2 SP5.
