Q: In the SAP License it is possible to select the B1 Usability Package. Do I need this?
A: No, this is not needed. See below
Q: You run on B1UP on the Add-on compatibility license. Is this not wrong when SAP has a different system?
A: It is correct that SAP has tried to introduce a new Add-on License system to replace the Compatibility License system, but SAP has never completed the work to the point where the system was ready for global SSP Add-ons that are sold through the resellers.
For that reason, almost all of the major add-ons around the world does still use the Compatibility License (Those who use the new system do not have any benefits in having it, only problems). Instead, they have, like us, created their own license system.
This is perfectly legal (SAP has now extended all Compatibility Licenses to the year 2099 and it is still an option to use the new license in the certification process).
Q: I get a message that I have exceeded the max number of allowed databases?
A: Please see this video on what that means and how to handle it: http://www.boyum-it.com/Link/MaxDatabases
