We currently have DS 4.0 SP2 with CMS on BIP 4.0 SP2. A problem with charts means that we have to upgrade CMS to BIP 4.0 SP4 or SP5. In the past we have experienced lots of problems with version compatibilities between DS and BIP. Does anybody have any input on whether we also need to upgrade DS as part of this upgrade?
Please review the KBA 1740516 - SAP BusinessObjects Data Services 4.x and SAP BusinessObjects Information Steward 4.x compatibility with SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform and Information Platform Services
BI/IPS 4.0 SP4 and SP5 or higher compatible patches are compatable with DS 4.0 SP3 and higher patches.
