SAP on Window 2008 R2 (Downgraded)

Former Member

Hi

We have installed the SAP below software at our production site. Now we are in process of setup the DR system.

1. SAP Software     : SAP ECC 6.0 EHP5 / BW 7.3 / GRC 10.0
2. Database         : Oracle 11.2.0.3
3. Operating System : Window 2008 R2

The challange is that now Microsoft is not selling/giving Window 2008 R2. They are giving "window 2012 standard" license and suggest us to downgrade the same to "Windows 2008 Enterprise Edition".

Question: Please let us now that does this downgraded version will work at DR and there should not be any problem due to this.

Please clarify it

Regards

Vimal Pathak

Hi Vimal,

By downgrading means on paper it will be Windows 2012 but software delivered can be 2008 R2.

As 2008 R2 is supported by SAP, no issues on running DR and Primary on this OS.

Hope this helps.

It doesn't mean that Microsoft has stopped supporting 2k8 R2.

Licensing concept has changed, you need to have 2012 license, but you can have 2008R2 installations.
