    Hi George

    In your SAP system, run transaction SLICENSE and you will see it in the top:

    Hello George, is your system updateon SAP Marketplace ?

    You can see hardware key on:

    • Display and Maintain System Details of your system

    • Go to License Key & Maintenance Certificate

      Hi Graham,

      I haven't finished installing solution manager 7.1 yet because I encountered an error I can't fix it. I tried to create new system to maintain for message yesterday afternoon because I need to understand how to solve this problem. That's why I don't have any SAP system to get my hardware key. I would like to know if there is another way to obtain permanent key.

      Thank you and best regards,

      George

    Hi George,

    As mentioned you can check you hardware key by running transaction SLICENSE from SAP

    You can check the hardware key also from OS level by login into user <sid>adm and execute the command

    saplicense -get

    Thanks & Regards

    Amit

      Hi Amit,

      I had a workaround, but I am not sure if I would like to obtain permanent key, does it go through the same method?

      thank you and best regards,

    Hi George,

    Hardware key is required for getting a license from SAP Service Market Place.

    Steps:

    For Solaris/ UNIX/ Windows

    1. Login to the server with SIDADM user
    2. Use command: saplicense –get

    ABAP Stack:

    Transaction Code: SLICENSE

    The following actions will change the Hardware Key:

    1. Formatting the machine and reinstalling Windows.

    2. When changing the computer name.

    3. When changing the domain (it will not change back when returning to the previous domain).

    4. On Linux - If you change the network card.

    The following actions will NOT change the Hardware Key:

    1. When adding a login user for the computer.

    2. When changing date/time on the computer.

    3. When changing the IP.

    4. When adding a memory or hard drive to the computer.

      Hi V. Srinivasan,

      I am wondering if I have to run it under correct OS or I don't need to because I run it on my laptop with Win 7 professional and then it show an error: It's not an executable file.

      On the other hand, I had a workaround to create a new system data maintain. However, I sent a message with this workaround, I haven't received your reply until today. I don't know what happened to it and I am not sure if it was successful to send or not.

      thank you and best regards,

      George
