DMS Document Management - Storing Documents at Unix Level


Hi all,

I've created a DMS prototype, SAP 4.6C custom ABAP program which calls BAPI_DOCUMENT_CREATE2, which works great. It stores a link to a networked path + file, i.e. X:\folderA\doc1.dat but not the document itself.

Now, we wish to do the same but store the documents on the SAP unix server but outside of R3 because the number and size of documents is considerable. We want to link the document, i.e. /sap/dms/doc1.dat but not load the document into R3. It is not working and believe problem is as per below.

Question #1

1. What does the data carrier section of config look like for Unix document storage? (IMG/CAC/DMS/General Data/Define Data Carrier)

2. What does the storage system section of config look like for Unix document storage?(IMG/CAC/DMS/General Data/Settings for Storage System)

3. General question - How is the storage system related to the data carrier?

Please feel free to point me to documentation as what I've seen so far is vague or unrelated.

Thanks in advance,
