Basics OF SAP NW

Hi All,

I have a few elementary doubts in SAP NW could you please help me solve it?

1) Where is SAP NW installed? Is it installed on WEB AS which inturn is on Application layer of R/3?

2) Where is WEB AS installed?

3) WHere are all the modules SD, MM, FI/CO installed?

4) When we buy Netweaver do we get all the components like MI, XI, EP MDM etc along with it?

5) If yes to the above, then do we have to install them or they come ready to use?

6) Could you tell me why we have common login for SD, MM, Fi/co etc modules but different logins for EP, XI, MI etc?

    Hi Ashish,

    if you go thru the SAP NW architecture, it will clear all your doubts.

    1)SAP WEBAS is replaced with NW, from WAS6.40, we call it as NW. ECC is powered by Nw.

    2)SAP NW has in-build WEB AS service, so we don;t install Web AS, when we install NW.

    3)we will add all this components (modules) as add-ons on NW. we will download the necessary components and apply thru SPAM or SAINT. after installation, we will activate this components as per our requirments.

    4)yes, generally all this additional components will come along with NW DVDs.

    5)yes, we have a common login ids for all modules, but based on the type of roles and profiles we will restrict the users to their corresponding Modules.

    i hope this info, will help you. i advice you to go thru Master guide of Netweaver which is available at Service Market Place.

    • Hi,

      just to clarify, SAP NetWeaver is a technology platform. You can also get business applications that run on SAP NetWeaver (called 'powered by SAP netWeaver' applications - PBNW). These applications use some or all of the SAP NetWeaver technology - it just depends on what the application developers need to deliver the business processes.

      You can install SAP NetWeaver standalone or embedded within a PBNW application.
