This blog covers latest information and known issues for the SAP S/4HANA 1709 Fully-Activated Appliance (if not indicated otherwise, the issues will occur in client 100 or across all clients).
The overview blog for this appliance can be found under https://blogs.sap.com/?p=564532
Initial system performance after instance creation
When you create an instance, the initial system performance will be slow, especially within the Fiori Launchpad (some minutes of response time for the logon / first tiles, potentially a time-out). Also, the first click on a Fiori tile will be significantly slower. This is due to initial caching in the system and will become faster if you continue working with the system.
Note to SAP administrators: SGEN has been performed to pre-compile ABAP coding.
“Manage Customer Returns” app (as part of scope item BKP, Advanced Customer Returns)
On the ‘Manage Customer Returns’ app, it’s not possible to select the Return Document number and to activate the ‘Determine Refund’ button. If trying to access the link ‘ Refund Determination’ from the document number, an error ‘ the request Resource not found’ is displayed.
As a workaround, you can use the app “Determine Customer Refund”.
“Change Maintenance Notification” app (as part of scope item BH1, Corrective Maintenance)
On the “Change maintenance notification” app, assigning an order to a notification is not possible. As a workaround, use the app “Manage Notification List” to assign orders.
Supported hosting providers for the SAP S/4HANA 1709 Fully Activated Appliance
The appliance is not yet released on MS Azure (as of Dec 14th) but will be shortly.
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is currently not yet supported for the SAP S/4HANA 1709 fully-activated appliance. This is intended for the future, but requires some changes in the API handshake between Google and SAP Cloud Appliance Library. The SAP S/4HANA 1610 FPS01 appliance can be used with GCP.
