- This blog post might be outdated by now. The latest documentation regarding SQL Server Columnstore on SAP is available in https://www.sap.com/documents/2019/04/023e5928-487d-0010-87a3-c30de2ffd8ff.html
This blog was originally released in January 2015. It contained the text of SAP Note 2114876 – Release Planning SAP BW for SQL Server Columnstore. In the meanwhile, the recommendations in this SAP note have changed a few times. Therefore, I removed the outdated information from this blog today (Mai 2017). Read the SAP Note instead.
However, I still want to share the following information from SAP Note 2114876 here:
Minimum, recommended code for Columnstore
To benefit from most improvements, it is highly recommended (as at November 2016) to apply at least the following SAP Support Package Stacks (SPS)
|SAP SPS||32 **||17||17||15||13||15||13||4|
|**||In SAP NetWeaver 7.00, the number of the SAP BW SP is always 2 numbers higher than the number of the SPS. For example, SAP NetWeaver SPS 32 contains SAP_BASIS SP 32, but SAP_BW SP 34.|
