ECC 6.0 IDES, and KW 7.0

I can't seem to find any new documentation either way, but does anyone know whether or not IDES for ECC 6.0 and Knowledge Warehouse 7.0 will run in 64-bit environments (64-bit hardware, 64-bit Windows and SQL Server 2005)? I'm assuming that since KW 7.0 was part of Netweaver 2004 that it would indeed be supported and that since ECC 6.0 IDES is essentially a NetWeaver 2004s demo that logically they should both be compatible.

Thank you for any information you can provide.

    Hi Michael,

    Just installed ECC 6.0 on 64 Bit (Windows 2003/MSSQL)platform without any major problems. As it is installed only as ABAP-instance i didn't have to go through all the trouble of finding the correct JAVA stuff (which is kept in a safe place with Sun) took me a while to find the correct X64 - Java version for this last time i installed another ECC 6.0 system on X64.

    Now i want to start using this IDES system i cannot find any documentation on what scenario's are set up and how to use them (sign-on and clients and stuff). May'be you can help me with this ?

    Regards,

    Jos Ouddeken

      Just to clarify some points on ECC installation;

      ECC6.0 is based on NW 7.0 and thus there is no need to install a NW application platform(server) first. You can choose ECC6.0 installation media ( masterNW kerneljavaexportslanguages) and directly start installing it. It comes as a package ( ERP on Netweaver)

      Normally you need a system with atleast 2 CPU / 4 GB / 200 GB HDD to install ECC6.0 dual stack (Java+ABAP) with SAPGUI. You may need more memory if you are looking for good performance. ECC6.0 really need a lot of resources.

      IDES installation is very similar to a normal ECC installation. Only difference is you use a different set of export CDs. SAP installation guide is more than sufficient for a basic setup.

    Sorry if i am reposting this answer.

    IDES 6.0 and KW 7.0 in 64 bit system--->

    Content server is released for only IA32 bit, so you may not be able to install KW on 64 bit os because you need Content server for that which is not supported on 64 bit as of now.

    But if you decide to install in two system it may be possible, Install IDES with ABAP+JAVA in 64 bit platform and install Content server in 32 bit server.

    Check service.sap.com/pam for more details.

    Thanks

    HI Michel

    Since you have kept this theread still open i though of replying to you..Yes it suports X64 , on MS-SQL

    please see the "SAP Note 1013702 - IDES BW 7.0 /SEM 6.0" which decribes the cComponents and suported H/W for this instalations.

    recently we have done a sizing for our lansdcape (Testing) .. follwoing are the sizing of that

    
    IDES SAP SEM 6.0/BW 7.00	6 GB RAM	
    250GB HDD  (Recommend Tier-3 enterprise storage) 
    2 CPU , SAPS -2000	
     WIndows X64	
    LTO Backups
    

    hope this will give you some insight in to what you looking for ..do let me know if you need any information

    Regards
