BO 4.0 Migration

0 Kudos

Hi Folks,

We have created some Dashboards with Query browser option on top of universe created on BO 4.0 SP06.

Now my problem is,

Can i Deploy(Migrate) and run all these dashboards in BO 4.0 SP04 Environment ? If Not, Anyone please suggest me how to get all these stuff in SP04.

Does Business Objects supports backward compatibility..?

Thanks,

Vinod Kumar A.

Hi,

the hardline recommendation is that you have server and client components on the same level.

If not .. you could be re-introducing old bugs when you publish to platform,  or you could be leveraging new  client features at design-time which aren't supported on the platform..

Hi Vinod,

As Henry suggested, its not advisable to do so. But, In our project we have gone through scenario where we had to upgrade to Dashboards client tool alone to SP6 and leaving the BI platform on SP4 and were able to run the dashboards published from SP6 client to SP4 server fine and we have gone through migrating these dashboards from SP4 DEV server to SP6 QA and to SP4 PROD without issues , since we were not using any explicit new features of Dashboards that are part of SP5 or SP6. It works fine as long as dashboards do not use any backward incompatible features.

Thanks Mallikarjuna,

But my dashboards are created using Query Browser option on top of universe created on SP6.

In this situation can i migrate those dashboards also to SP4.

Hi Vinod,

Query browser is a supported connection in both SP4 and SP6 service packs, I think you should not have any issues.

Its better you try pushing one or two dashboards as test before actually pushing everything.
