    Does this include tips on upgrading web tier and SDK? I am wondering if I should uninstall 4.1 opendocument and .net sdk completely and reload 4.2. Great work btw, I will sending out a request!

      Hi Bob, that is purely depends upon what exactly you are doing with your SDK piece. There is no common answer as it’s based on case by case basis. Best is to reach out to SAP through Support to determine the course of action.

    I just sent in the req. Sathish we are planning on upgrading our existing wind 2008 R2 BOE XI 4.2 SP4 Update 7  to Windows 2012 and BOE XI 4.2 SP3.Can we remove the node,upgrade the os add the node back. Is this possible

      You’ll need to do it in 2 steps :
      Upgrade OS then upgrade BOE
      Upgrade BOE, then upgrade the OS.

      Removing one node, upgrading OS and adding node back is absolutely a good way of doing this.
