  • Release Terminology:
    1. EBF: This term applies to ASE releases. An EBF number uniquely identifies a given release on an individual platform.
    2. GA (General Availability): The initial release of a new, version of SAP software. This release typically contains several new features, in addition to fixed situations.
    3. SP (Support Package): Software patches previously known to Sybase customers as ESD (Electronic Software Delivery) following major or minor releases will be referred to as SP (support package). An SP may contain new features.
    4. PL (Patch Level): A patch level is a collection of fixes that are added to an SP. Note that ASE 16.0 GA is effectively the same as ASE 16.0 SP00 PL00.
    5. HF (Hot Fix).  A collection of more urgent/important bug fixes released between scheduled PL releases.
  • Updates may be made prior to the next scheduled update of this posting. For example, when an EBF/SP is actually released or if there are major delays to an EBF/SP previously scheduled to release shortly.
  • EBF cover letters contain the final list of fixed situations and corresponding descriptions in a release. The CR lists above are only targets and not final.
  • The release schedule is based on the general assumption that patches across platforms will be released around the same timeframe, if not on the same date. Major exceptions will be noted in the Notes column of the table.


  1. Former Member

    Is there a release date yet for

    CR 593136,  KBA 2216011 and can I subscribe to be notified when it is ready?



    1. Gary, it is not fixed yet. You can subscribe to the KBA and you will be notified when we update it with the fix version.


  2. Hi, can you please elaborate on the SAP ASE release strategy or point to where I can find info?  E.g. HANA has concept of revision, support package and support pack stack with details around each.  Does SAP ASE have anything similar?

    Many thanks and regards,


    1. Hi Nic,

      About ASE, there is information about Road Map, Database  & Technology: . For Support Packges (SP) you will find new features + fixes, and for Patch Level (PL) you will find the collection of fixes, as described in above Wiki.

      3.SP (Support Package): Software patches previously known to Sybase customers as ESD (Electronic Software Delivery) following major or minor releases will be referred to as SP (support package). An SP may contain new features.

      4.PL (Patch Level): A patch level is a collection of fixes that are added to an SP. Note that ASE 16.0 GA is effectively the same as ASE 16.0 SP00 PL00.

      Within above Wiki, you will find a KBA containing the list of the CR (Change Request) in each PL/SP, as well as the corresponding targeted date of release.

      Also you can get further details within Help SAP about ASE 16 new Features (for each release) and their corresponding notes in the link bellow, by selecting the SP02 or SP01

      Further more regarding SAP aplications, please keep in mind the minimum supported ASE inside note “1554717 - SYB: Planning information for SAP on ASE”, which is regularly updated.

      Thanks & Regards,


      1. Thank you Pedro, very helpful and does answer my questions.

    BR, Sudhakar S

    1. Hi Sudhakar,

      Regards, Mark

  4. Hi Mark,

    We could able to see patch  ASE 16.00SP02 PL06 HF01 for BS has been pulled back from SMP.

    Is there any specific reason for that ?

    When can we expect the release back in SMP.

    BR, Sudhakar S

    It will also be available again under Support Packages & Patch's tab. In the meantime it can be downloaded from the Installation path above.



  6. Hi Pedro,

    I am trying to install an "ASE 16 for Business Suite". But I am keep having problems with the package for AIX, 51052162_4. When selecting the package in SWPM I get errors.


    The integrity check for [archives/locales/unicode/sylapi/de_de/sylapi.lcu (and following)


    "sysam_utilities/locales/unicode/sylapi/de_de/sylapi.lcu" (and following)

    of SAP ASE failed. DETAILS: The content has been tampered with and must not be used. 


    Package strucure looks like this: 51052162_4 / Inhouse_  /  SYBASE_AIX_PPC64; file named LABELIDX.ASC / 

    Tried (several) downloads (Browser and Download Manager) with change date from 26.07.2017.

    Could you look into it? 

    Kind Regards


    1. Hi Sven,

      If you unpack it on windows and then transfer to the AIX it may cause issues.In that case, please make sure you have unpacked this RDBMS on AIX.

      If you need further help, could you please open an Expert chat ( 2213344) or incident at



      1. Hi Pedro,

        thank you, yes I did try this as well. I will have to open an incident then.
