Re:  Important SAP GUI Upgrade Instructions

Dear SAP GUI users:

As you may be aware, U of T will be transitioning to the new version of SAP GUI as the current version is no longer supported. We have notified divisional IT administrators about this change, and they will help to facilitate with the upgrade from SAP GUI 7.6 (Patch 6) to version 8.00 (Patch 4). The new version includes performance improvements, and enhanced stability and security.

This upgrade represents minimal change to business processes – once upgraded, you will see a simplified list of connection entries on the Logon Pad, and you will be able to connect to the AMS environment. There will be no changes to the theme.

Logon Pad:

Current View New View
SAP GUI Logon Pad with many connection entries SAP GUI Logon Pad after the upgrade showing fewer connection entries

If you have questions about timing for the upgrade, please contact your divisional IT administrator.

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