  • I tried to do exactly as this guide but i am running into an error.

    Any help will be appreciated.

     

    • Hello Rachel,

      While generating maintenance planner and choosing fiori deployment, only UI for S/4HANA works fine. If you select other component in SAP Fiori then you will get error and you won’t be able to generate maintenance planner.

      UI for HCM: OCS package SAPK-200AGINUIX01CA1 does not match the current software component vector
      UI for MDG: OCS package SAPK-200AGINUIMDG001 does not match the current software component vector
      UI for TRV: OCS package SAPK-300AGINUITRV001 does not match the current software component vector

      I feel SAP should remove this option in maintenance planner (to avoid confusion and questions) if it is not compatible with SAP Fiori for S/4HANA 1909.

      Kindly just select UI for S/4HANA when choosing fiori deployment and proceed further to generate xml.

      Regards,

      Dennis

      • Hi Dennis,

        Thanks for your comments.

        I think it may still work using same options as before.The items marked (obsolete) should not be selected. I tried and it works.
        There was a locking issue yesterday that has bee acknowledged and resolved. I feel same options should work, but let us see if this is a scenario that also needs a fix.

        • Hello Mahesh,

          Thank you for checking on the issue. But I have generated my xml on 09/19/2019, at that time also I faced the same issue even after deselecting obsolete component. I have tried generating xml yesterday before commenting here, but was facing the same issue. Even today as you have mentioned that it should work, but I’m getting the same error. Below are screenshots.

          Regards,

          Dennis

    • Hi rachel,

      There was an issue yesterday and I had reported it. The root cause was that a locked ACP has created attribute change package.

      Please retry the same options you did before and let me know if there is still an issue.

       

  • Hi

     

    I am also facing the same issue even if I follow the suggestion above. I get the error – OCS package SAPK-700AGINUIAPFI70 does not match the current software

     

    Please advise.

  • Hey Mahesh – We are working on a Greenfield S/4 HANA implementation, and have installed a Dev enviornment with S/4 HANA 1809. What is your recommendation should we install 1909 FPS0 now, or wait for a couple weeks for the next FPS release.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Samta.

     

    • Hi Samta,

       

      Your decision would depend on how much work is already done in the discover and explore phase on  1809. You have to also take into consideration the advantages of 1909 as some new features are released like direct data migration using individual objects from ERP to S/4HANA 1909 using data migration.
      Some companies like to be one release back by the time they golive so any fixes to the software are already available.

  • Hi Mahesh,

    Thanks a lot for sharing this document. It indeed is very helpfull considering the fact that 1909 is released very recently and there is very less documentation available.

    I am also installing the S/4HANA 1909 and facing the same issue in downloading the stack files(Maitenance Planner –> Plan for S/4HANA) . Where as in the Maintenance planner –> Plan a new system , I don’t see this error. But there I don’t get the option to select the “Frontend Server Selection”. Could you please help on how shall we proceed.

    We need to install 1909 mainly for EWM functionality. Therefore would you recommend to install the Frontend Fiori along with the S/4HANA server.

    Also for EWM do I need to select any other Target Product Instance like Basis Appl or BI Content Extension or only SAP Predicitve Integrator and SAP HANA Rules Framework are sufficient for EWA functionality which are selected by default.

    Thanks a lot once again and looking forward for your response.

    With Regards,

    Apurve
