Best practice:

  • Use the highest available patch within the highest available Active Release, which has the most up-to-date features, enhancements, and fixes. SAP Data Services patches are
    downloadable from SAP’s Support Portal. The base version (Patch 0_ and the latest 2 patches are available for download.

  • Use the same Data Services Client Tools as the Data Services Server version. However, the different Data Services Client Tools versions within the same SP will work unless specified
