SAP GUI 7.20 patch rollback

Hello all,

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?

Hello Ben

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.

Best Regards
