Hello,

I would like to know the possible issues when using SAP BI 4.2 client tools with SAP BI 4.1 CMS : what problems could I face, for example, when exporting universes from the Universe Design Tool version 4.2 to the CMS version 4.1 ?

Thank you.

Hi Xavier,

You could run into performance issues while using the designer.

There were many enhancements added in BI 4.2 versions which you might not be able to use in the client and hence would not be functional when the report is viewed from the BI Launchpad.

Regards,

Sharvari

In addition to all of the above, the security libraries were completely replaced with 4.2 SP4 so Client Tools which are that version or newer won't even connect to a 4.1 system.
