Hi All,

We are planing to upgrade to SP 14. So, my questions are :

01: Need i have to install any other patch before aplying SP 14 ?

02: Do anyone have -ve feed back on SP14 ?

03: If anything goes wrong, how do i revert back ?


Kindly answer me.

Hello Ashly,

01 - As far as I know the each SP contains all fixes from the previous SPs. Of course it contains all non fixed bugs plus it's own bugs :)

02 - As much as I appreciate any positive feedback I wouldn't based on that. Use a test/development environment and test it throughly your own (see [03])

03 - Only through Database restore. If you find a critical bug after some days of using it you are in deep sh**. Thus test it and re test it and re re test it.

Hello Ashly,

I think you can just update to SP14 regardless of earlier version of SP.
The SP14 was release recently so you may have to wait for +ve / -ve feedback.


1. First you have to check any bugs are there in the running version of SP, and then if that is fixed in the new SP you can install it.
2. As stated by George M. Menegakis it is better to wait for some positive response

3. Please read the release notes of SP14 before updating it in your system.

Dear George and Ganes,

Thanks for teh feed back. I will wait for a week, before installing SP 14.

But, on the HP Patch site, i saw that SP 14 is depened on Web Console SP 14. Need i have to install that too ? In face we are not using Web Console as of now.
