Hardware requirements for SAP ERP 2005 using ECC 6.0

Hello everyone,

i am already new and need information about the min. hardware requirements for a SAP ERP 2k5 System using ECC 6.0 with IDES 7.10.

I read the Master Guides about ERP, but i am not even more clever than before.

The OS is MS Windows 2k3 Server EE.

The last information i had from another one to this configuration is:

1 dual-core cpu (? Ghz)

4-6 GB RAM

300 GB HDD

Does it fit? Can anyone help me out?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Give us a clue as to the number of users, amount of data etc etc.

    However as rough and ready guide

    Single 2.0ghz DC cpu will be fine.

    6GB Ram will be fine

    Disk

    mirror pair for OS and exes (72GB)

    mirror pair for logs (72GB)

    raid 5 set for data (3 x 72GB)

    By doubling the number of disk in the raid 5 set you will increase performance (I/O) by 50% as a rule of thumb.

    Go for 64bit version of windows, if you use 32bit make sure you set /3GB switch.

    SAP have stop developing on 32bit.

    It depends if you will run just ABAP or ABAP+Java.

    With less than 6 GB it won't be joy working...

    Hi,

    IDES 7.10?!?

    If it's an IDES system you want to set up, HDD space may be the bottleneck. It's sufficient for installation, but you may run out of disk space since note 1013391https://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/1013391">1013391> states

    Hardware Requirement 
                     MS-SQL  ORACLE   MaxDB   DB2 Win/Unix  AS/400
    DB size (GB):    160     220      220          160       280

    Since IDES is for education and training purposes only the rest should be sufficient.

    I'm running an ERP 6.0 IDES system (32 bit) on a single core, 3.2 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 250 GB System and 500 GB SAP/DB HDD with pretty good response time.

      >>> more than 4 GB doesn't make sense...

      why that?

      it depends on your operating system.

      Windows XP will only see 3 GB,

      W2K3 will be able to use up to 4 GB, but the

      W2K3 Enterprise Edition can definitely benefit from more than 4 GB memory (up to 16 GB. it can even use more than 16 GB if /3GB is not set (not recommended).

      regards

    Hi there,

    do I am confusing some thing?

    1) You are talking about IDES 7.10. I think there is only IDES 4.7 even for SAP ERP ECC 6.0.

    2) My second question is: could someone tell me please where I can find the Installation Guide for IDES (MySAP ERP 2005) which we call now SAP ERP IDES 4.7.

    I used the guide line for MySAP ERP ECC 6.0 to installation IDES but now I realy want to do it better now 😊

    Thanks for yiur help.

    Best regards

    • 1) You are talking about IDES 7.10. I think there is

      only IDES 4.7 even for SAP ERP ECC 6.0.

      Nope.

      IDES is "Internation Demo and Education System"

      4.7 is the release, so IDES 4.7 is an R/3 Enterprise based IDES system.

      SAP ERP ECC 6.0 doesn´t exist, the new name is

      SAP ERP 6.0 (http://service.sap.com/erp)

      2) My second question is: could someone tell me

      please where I can find the Installation Guide for

      IDES (MySAP ERP 2005) which we call now SAP ERP IDES

      4.7.

      Nope, not ERP IDES 4.7.

      You are searching for an installation for ERP 6.0 IDES. You can use the normal installation guide except for the filesystem sizes, you need more space.
