    Hello Boris,

    A good video, thanks!

    Do I still need to upgrade traditional DB version if it is not compatible with the new NW version when using the DMO?

    Thanks & Best Regards,

    Tong Ning

      Hello Tong Ning,

      thank you for the feedback.

      Actually it depends on the database type if the database software has to be updated prior to the DMO run or not. SAP Note 1813548 is the central SAP Note on DMO and contains this information – e.g. for MaxDB, you can start with MaxDB and do not have to update to MaxDB 7.9.

      Best regards, Boris
