Usage of sapmnt and/or saploc shared folder for SAP on Windows.

Hi Gurus,

I installed SAP NetWeaver ABAP and JAVA on Windows 2003 with SQL 2000 with HA. I am not sure how exactly the shared directories sapmnt and saploc are used. If any of you have any docs or information please share with me.

    The global data (binaries) is stored in the global directories on the global host and physically exists only once for each SAP system. Other application server access the data using the UNC name,
    <SAPGLOBALHOST>\sapmnt, where

    SAPGLOBALHOST is replaced by the SAP system with the name of the global host. The global host accesses its

    own instance-specific data using the UNC name
    <SAPLOCALHOST>\saploc. On the central instance host,

    the parameters SAPGLOBALHOST and SAPLOCALHOST have the same value.

    Refer to NetWeaver ABAP Installation guide part 1 for more information.

    Hope this help!
