      Hi Henry -

      Thank you for this.

      I cannot access the fixed issues list and the release restrictions links above.  I contacted SAP Support who said the release date of the documents is 11-19-14 - tomorrow.

      Hi Henry,

      Could you tell me where I can find the Supported Platforms Document for BI 4.1 SP5? I checked the documentation portal for BI 4.1 and could not find it there yet. I am guessing it is not available to public yet.

      Please let me know.

      Thanks,

      Chinmay

      Hi Henry,

      The server installer for SP5 has twice the size of SP4.

      The SP5 installer includes folders 51049030_1 & 51049030_2 that have very similar contents, can you shed some light on this?

      Cheers,

      - Fernando Bártolo

      EDIT: the install has since been fixed and new server files have been published. Size is back at ~4GB.

      Hi, Henry,

      Are you aware of any compatibility issues between SAP BI 4.1 SP05 and SAP Lumira 1.20? Today I've tried to create a Query from UNX using SAP Lumira but got an error that the Universe couldn't be retrieved. Though I could successfully connect to the BI 4.1 platform.

      Thank you in advance.

      Best regards,

      Donatas Budrys

      Hi Donatas,

      good point - I checked the PAM for Lumira SP20, and because that LUM release predates BI 4.1 SP05 (22 Oct for LUM vs. 20 Nov for BI)..  unfortunately, SP05 isn't yet supported yet! See here, page 11 https://websmp105.sap-ag.de/~sapidb/011000358700001095842012E

      Regards,

      Thank you, Henry,

      Probably we should wait for SAP Lumira 1.21. Any ideas when it will be available?

      Best regards,
