BW 7.4 Post-upgrade Issue with RSCHAVL - Pre-upgrade measure not implemented
Our BW Development server was just upgraded from BW 7.3 to BW 7.4 SP08. We discovered that we did not implement Note 1879618 (Pre-upgrade measures for upgrade/update to 7.4). Therefore the program RSD_PREXPRA_TO_740 was not executed before the upgrade. As a result, data element using domain RSCHAVL was not replaced with another data element of type CHAR60.
RSCHAVL where-used list has around 6000 objects (table, structure, data element, programs, etc.).
The questions are:
- Since we did not implement note 1879618, we really don't know what we have missed. Is it necessary to rollback to 7.3, implement the note and reinstall 7.4?
- If we do not rollback, are there other options/resolutions?
- Note 1823174 (BW 7.4 changes and customer-specific programs) seems to only address customer exit and few custom programs. What about others and those GP* programs? We have hundreds of these programs for update rule/transformation. How do we resolve those?
Thank you for your help.
