Category: Information

Platform: ABAP

Version: 1 from 23.03.2021


PowerConnect 5.X can be installed on the top of an existing version. Doing so will replace the existing 4.X version.

The below diagram shows the patch equivalent levels.  

Important Note: You must install the v5.0 installation package and the patch at the same time in SAINT. 

4.18 = 5.00 

4.19 = 5.01 

4.20 = 5.02
