SAP GUI 7.20 patch rollback
We are in the process of implementing SAP GUI 7.20 globally using Installation Servers.
I just wanted to pose a "what if" question...
Is there a way to roll back your SAP GUI's to a prior patch if SAP releases a GUI patch that causes major issues in our environment?
Ex: We are on patch 6, we update to patch 7 and there is a critical issue that was missed in QA, which breaks our production end users.
Can I simply apply the previous patch over the new one on the IS server? Or would I be at the mercy of OSS Messages and waiting for SAP to release a hot fix?
no, that is not possible. The Patch scenario will compare the file versions during the
update. Only higher versions will copied to the client. A lower version does not copied
to the client.
It is only possible, that you deinstall the Sapgui with command line
nwsapsetup /uninstall /all /nodlg
Then you can install the Sapgui again, with the patchlevel you want.
