Is Crystal Server 2016 compatible with Windows Server 2016

0 Kudos

We are running Crystal Server 2016 Support Pack 6 on Windows Server 2012R2.

We'd like to update the server to Windows 2016. I've been searching for documentation on compatibility but haven't been able to find anything.

Is Crystal Server 2016 compatible with Windows Server 2016?

Many thanks,

Hi Barbara,

You're correct, no Product Availability Matrix is available.

Although I stumbled upon SAP support information for the product that you may or may not be aware of. Going through SAP Crystal Server Installation Guide for Windows guide, it suggests to refer BusinessObjects BI 4.0 Product Availability Matrix (PAM). Now following SAP Note 1338845 - How to find Product Availability Matrix (PAM) / Supported Platforms Documentation for SAP ..., PAM should be available under Essential Information section of the landing page for SBOP BI PLATFORM 4.0. Respective section states "No information available" though. Now when you look at the Release Plan section on the same page, it has got following detail:
End of Mainstream Maintenance: 31.12.2015
End of Priority One Support Phase: 31.12.2017

So, looks like the product is out of support and so information that you're looking for isn't available. You may want to evaluate SAP Crystal Server upgrade itself and then refer corressponding SBOP BI PLATFORM PAM.

I hope above helps.

Best Regards,
Kashyap Sha
