BI PLATFORM UPGRADE - Needing to stop BI Services?


We want to upgrade BI 4.1 SP4 Patch 1 from BI 4.1 SP4.

Do we need to stop the BI Services and Tomcat?

Best Regards,

Former Member


This is not the recommended procedure.

Please see page 17 of the

Minor Release Update Guide for SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Suite 4.1

All servers except the following should be stopped manually:

• Server Intelligence Agent (SIA)

• Central Management Server (CMS)

• Input and Output File Repository Servers (FRS)

• CMS system database
