Deploy NWDI

Hello Experts,

The customer decided now to have the NDWI configured into an existing SAP netweaver 7.5 system.

My doubt is if I can deploy straight the last version of the patches CMS, DTR and CBS, can't I?

Should I use the SUM tool?

Thanks a lot.

    Hello Marilia,

    You can deploy straight the latest patches.

    The NWDI 7.5 includes a 4. SCA which called DI NOTIFICATION (DINTY). You have to install it also.

    There are different tools what you can use to deploy. You can deploy via telnet also but you can use the SUM tool as well.

    Best Regards,

      Thank you Szabolcs. How can I use telnet instead of Sum tool?

      I did not see any document saying about deploying DI NOTIFICATION (DINTY).

    Hi Marilia,

    Is there anything else running on that existing NW 7.5 Java system? While technically you can add the DI usage type to an existing system, I think a best practice would be to have NWDI be a standalone system. It's a judgment call, ultimately, depending on how many developers or different development tracks you're supporting, but even if it's just a couple of developers in a single track, the NWDI system can be very heavily loaded during the CBS build in a track.

    SUM would indeed be the preferred tool for doing this, and you'll also want to use Maintenance Planner to be sure to setup a consistent set of SCAs, with consistent patch levels, to deploy. Doing so, and using the stack xml file that is generated, should add the DI usage type to the system when you run the SUM process on it.
