Space in SAP Server is very less.

Dear All,

We have SAP ECC 6.0 installed in our machine which has Oracle Database in background.

SAP is installed in E drive and There are 2 folders of Oracle present in both C and E drive.

But I guess Oracle is installed in C drive. Because whenever I create new Objects in SAP, space of C drive is utilized.

Now my main concern is :

The space left in C drive = 13 GB and in other drive is approx 51 GB.

We have one more drive which is recently attached to machine with space = 500 GB.

Does any one know what would happen happen if whole C drive is utilized. How my SAP Server performance will be affected?

Once C drive full, does the SAP Server will automatically start using the new Drive?

Please guide.

    Hi Suruchi,

    This is very difficult to say, but once the c: drive is fulled up you will have problems with windows,

    If oracle database is located on the C: then oracle will stop and sap will hang.

    First check the location of the sap installation

    Second you can check the location of oracle by using oracle views V$data_files

    sqlplus and execute select name from V$datafile;

    If oracle databaseis located on the C: i would suggest you move the oracle database to the new drive (also depends on the database size)

    Kind Regards

    Hi Suruchi

    1. C drive = 13 GB - try to shift the page file settings to some other drivers, Cdrive is full – complete system(Windows & SAP application) goes down
    2. Try to move the Oracle DB to new drive which your already attached 500GB

    Time to do some housekeeping

    Once C drive full, does the SAP Server will automatically start using the new Drive?

    No you have to do manually

    Thanks & Regards

    Hi Suruchi,

    By the feel of the installation it looks like a Sandbox system or IDES system. You have installed both SAP Application and Oracle database in same box. Better idea is to install from the scratch or take a complete backup of the database and reinstall the entire Application and database in desired way.

    In this current way you will choke the OS, DB at any given moment.

    All the best,

    Zaki
