Set up and search equipment characteristics sets

I need to set up an equipment class for servers with groups of characteristics for different HDD sets in it. The server can contain 1 to 4 sets of HDD of different types, with different amounts.

Class (002) = Server

Char:

SET1_TYPE SATA2TB

SET1_NO 3

SET2_TYPE SATA3TB

SET2_NO 2

etc.

How could I be able to find with one search (preferably IH08): give me all servers that has type SATA3TB in it (no matter in which set)?

How could I be able to find the following: give me all servers that has SATA2TB and SATA3TB in it (no matter in which set)?

Or should I change the set up of my characteristics (I need to keep track of the type and number of HDD together)?

Hi Robert,

Did you try CL30N?

If you select the class, you should then be able to search your equipment per multiple values of characteristics.

Yes I checked CL30n. I am looking for a solution that makes it possible to search all 4 sets (4 characteristics with type) with just one entry field. We did try to create an additional characteristic which contains all 4 values (auto fill). If we search for 1 type that works fine, but when we want to search for all servers that contains 2TB and 3TB HDD, SAP searches with an OR statement instead of an AND statement in the search for multiple values.

Why not create one characteristic for the "set", and one characteristic for the "type of set"?

Or separate classes for each set type, and put the classes in a class heirarchy.

We can not us the same characteristics in each sub class, right? So we still need set1_type and set2_type as characteristics. How could we search over these fields.

Characterisitcs can be assigned to multiple classes if required. Or you can put the characteristics in the top level hierarchy and they will be inherited downwards.

You can then use CL31 to search for objects using the characteristic.
