New Installation For ERP 6 EHP7 On Windows Server

Dear Experts,

we are now going through the task of installing a new ERP IDES with EHP 7 on a windows server 2008 R2,

i have read the master guide and the netweaver 7.40 installation guide.

i just wanna ask about something.

can we install the system on one partition server ( C only ) or should we make 2 partitions ( C and D )

i Really appreciate any advice.

Thanks.

    Hi Ahmed,

    Recommendation here would be to have minimum of 2 drives

    C:\ - OS + SWAP

    D:\ Database + SAP application

    Suggestion is not to install any SAP application or database in C:\drive.

      well,

      please don't forget that a proper database configuration does keep it's transaction log files on a physical volume other than the database files.

      If not doing so, you will never be able to run a complete database recovery (restore last online backup and recover transaction log until the crash) after a disk crash. If the transaction log (point in time recovery) information is stored on the same volume as the database it will be lost together with the database in case of a disk crash.

      regards

      Peter

      PS: for test systems it may be ok to put everything on one or two volumes if IO bandwith and recovery questions are of NO interest.

    Hi Ahmed,

    can we install the system on one partition server ( C only ) or should we make 2 partitions ( C and D )

    You can install it on a single drive also,but it's recommended to have installation of DB on separate drive (D:\ or any other)

    Hope this will help you.
