    Dear Krishna

    there is a "different" topic to consider. With EnhPack 3 you can use a"different" approach so that no local WWI installation is needed for the business. But for "developping" WWI layouts you still need a local WWI. PLease check threads. This topics is discussed may be 10 times (at max) here

    PS: Not sure if really somebody i susing this approach

    Hi Krishna,

    Yes you can install a WWI Server locally on you PC. After all the WWI Server just need a windows system and a connection the SAP system to run (and MS word).

    BUT it doesn't make sense for a real EHS system landscape as the WWI Servers need to be available 24/7/365.

    I would not recommend it as you can not run a WWI Server and the WWI Installation for editing WWI Templates on the same machine...

    Hope this helps

    Hello,

    To add to Mark comments

    - SAP recommends to install WWI as a separate server with its dedicated hardware.

    - When WWI server is installed, you should not install SAP GUI into the same server as conflict with librfc.dll.

    - Further if WWI server is not working and if you need to restart the services or any patching of WWI it would be difficult to do it on the same server as SAP.

    Thanks and Regards

    Dear Krishna

    the same feedback is true to some extent for "Expert Server". SAP recommands to prepare an own "Windows box" on which the Expert Server is installed (you should not install it "locally"). As with WWI: you can do "sizing" of Expert servers (link more than one Server to SAP if needed). Here the approach is: Expert Server is always installed as "Sync" server (like GLM WWI Server). So the set up of of Expert Server has some overlap to WWI server.
