Install SAP Netweaver 7.4 MaxDB Trial without Cloud


My problem is that i will install the Netweaver 7.4 on MaxDB as a trial machine on my local test server (not in a cloud).

The test version in a cloud at this link: Developer & Trial Editions: SAP Application Server ABAP and SAP Business Warehouse

On the minisap site (SAP Sneak Preview License Key Request ) i can create an activation code for this system but i can’t find the installation files to download.

But i really won`t a cloud!

On the i have no access for MaxDB, only AIX ;-(

The SAP Support has now answer and told me, that the best place to ask is here ;-)

So can every one help me, please?

Thanks and greetings from Germany

    Andreas,  all I can say is that apparently finding and obtaining trial or developer editions of NW 7.4 is an exercise that appears to frustrate many people (obviously including the support engineers, since they just sent you here).  A quick search of SCN shows many, many people asking this same question, and ultimately one well-known non-SAP developer wrote a long but very funny blog about his adventures trying to find... wait for it... a developer edition of NW 7.4 ABAP on MaxDB.  I'm not sure if it will help you find the download link or not... though it may give you ideas... but at least you'll know you aren't alone.

    Does SAP really want NON SAP Developers ? 1 of 3

      I know that the kernel is database-specific. My solution mean to install a NW 7.4 MaxDB with the standard install files (i don`t have access to this files) and activate this with a trial key (Systemnumber 00 System-ID NSP).

      I can`t use the same DB/OS i have access to download in our SAP-Portal, because its DB2 and i have no skil about DB2 and i have no iSeries in my house ;-)

      This system is for my own coding @home to create a homeautomation based on SAP ;-)

      The MaxDB i had install on 7.03 run ;-)

      Thanks for helping
