    Hello Anna,

    Via the OSS Note 1394553 - EH&S WWI server installation instructions you  get the document "EHS WWI Generation Server Set UP Guide, Version date 02.08.2013".


    How did you obtain the document "EHS WWI Generation Server Installation Implementation Guide, Version date 16.03.2010"? I think it just might be an older version of the "EHS WWI Generation Server Set UP Guide, Version date 02.08.2013".


    I would suggest to use 1394553 - EH&S WWI server installation instructions  /  "EHS WWI Generation Server Set UP Guide, Version date 02.08.2013" as it contains all necessary information.

    Unfortunately it contains all possible options / variations on how one could  setup WWI and not a recommended best practice advice...

    Kind Regards


    Mark

    Dear AnnChristine

    in last year a lot of changes happened in WWI enivronment. Some of these can be used only if you have proper SAP version in place. You should always check the OSS mentioned by Mark (and I believe inside that you will get always reference to OSS for current WWI version)

    Especially regarding WWI: currently roughly two SP WWI versions are dispatched by SAP per yeat. Some of these version contain only corrections; but some of them add functionality.

    You need always to be carefuly: how you would like to use SAP EHS? Do you use SAP EHS GLM? Yes / No?

    Especially with Enhpack 7 huge changes happende in the SAP internal framework; and some of these changes have had impact on WWI development.

    Best practise:

    On SAP marketplace you will find here only some "hints/Advices" by SAP /e.g.together with a WWI sizing guide).

    E.g. now WWI has been improved a lot for e.g. multithreading on Server etc. etc. Most of them set up issues are raised in collaboration: which windows version to use? which winword version to use? which access rights must be granted to windows user running WWI etc. etc.

    May be check: WWI for Experts

    Here you will find some refrences to the many threads discussing WWI set up (and challenges there in e.g. RFC connection, WWI administration),.

    If you check document SAP EHS Management for Beginners

    you will find this comment by a SCN user regarding WWI:

    "Just to throw in my two cents worth. With regards to installing Windows services for the EHS Expert Server and WWI Server: one needs a pretty good knowledge about Windows administration as well (service administration, windows policies, event log etc.). So, you probably need an admin guy that takes you by the hand and guides you through the whole installation procedure."

    Based on reasearch in SAP marketplace.  a number of OSS corrections are in place for WWI and related stuff in the last 6 month. Some of them are worth to look at and to install them.

    C.B:

    HUHU Gentlemen and Ladies,

    Oh I was just literally wondering if and what the difference  are between the two versions.

    I love WWI, I know sick huh? but I think it is a powerful tool.  I have been into EHS/ RM(RD) since 2010. but interested in SAP WORLD since 2000.

    Just need to continue to learn more.   Though implementing from scratch I would so love to do, because I never have done it yet, well expanding from Regional to European level or Global. But to build up a system from scratch, oh I cant wait.

    but one question-  generating Reports on a BULK level, when Specific info for certain material isn't then possible.( say Customer a, wants this material that is 13 number in MM world, but in EHS its a 10 number world- the bulk level, and this material is as Bulk but with some certain extras, but since in EHS only Bulk level is entered, these Customer specific info aren't available. is this a good way or bad way?
      Just thinking- because I
    wouldn't do reports on any Bulk level- same with Labels.

    Thanks I love this group!

    have a lovely week
    Anna

      Hi Christine,

      If you assign both bulk and non bulk materials to the same REAL_SUB you can still have different DG information for them:

      You can assign the bulk materials in addition directly to another DG_CL_SUB. The DG filling will for the bulk material use the data from the directly assigned DG_CL_SUB and not from the DG_CL_SUB that is linked (by inheritance or reference) to the REAL_SUB.

      -> There is some flexibility in the system.

      Kind Regards

      Mark
