Re: Reminder: SAP GUI Upgrade Instructions – S/4HANA Migration & MacOS Deployment Instructions

Dear SAP GUI users:

As you may be aware, the S/4HANA Migration requires an upgrade to the SAP GUI before a university-wide transition to the new S/4HANA platform. To ensure you are prepared for the system migration in November, please contact your local IT administrator if the updated SAP GUI software has not yet been deployed to your computer. All SAP GUI users will need to be upgraded from SAP GUI 7.5 Patch 12 (Enjoy theme) to SAP GUI 7.6 Patch 6 (Blue Crystal theme).

After the deployment, users will have new shortcuts/logon entries. Users will still need their eToken and CISCO VPN to log in to the AMS environment.

If you are using a Mac, the SAP GUI versions and features are different than Windows – no SAPGUI 7.6 for Mac has been released yet. We still recommend that users use the SAP GUI 7.5 patch 10. If you are not updating the Mac SAP GUI version, at a minimum Mac users need to update the connection details for the new HANA systems.

Please see these instructions for MacOS Manual Deployment of SAP GUI for JAVA Revision 10.

If you do not have a managed desktop or a local IT administrator, you can submit a ticket to the Enterprise Service Centre.

Please review this PDF to understand the minimal differences between the Enjoy and Blue Crystal themes. As also mentioned in the PDF, please do not use new shortcuts/logon entries until further notice.

Thank you for your support in making these improvements.

Sincerely,
Enterprise Applications & Solutions Integration (EASI)
