SAP WAS 6.40 installation on a DHCP enables machine

Hi ,

I understand that any SAP installation based on WAS 6.40 requires the machine to have a static/fixed ip and not an ip which changes dynamically whenever the machines comes on the network , which is usually the case when the machine has DHCP network . Now, if I am correct, please tell me if there is a work around .

I know that Microsoft Loopback Adapter can be installed but in that case I would loose my original network and would not be able to access the LAN . MS Loopback adapter is considered to be an option usually when there is no network available .

Basically the question how to install WAS 6.40 on a machine which does not have a fixed ip and runs on DHCP ?

Regards

Deepak Singh

    You can install, start and run a machine on a DHCP network, technically it´s possible. Just be aware, that you need to configure the machine then, that it registeres itself in the DNS server so you can reach it by name.

    • I don´t have such "document".

      Configuring is not a "step-by-step" thing, if you don´t understand what´s going on behind the scene, it may or may not work.

      You need to make the machine a member of your Active Directory domain, then the system will automatically sent its hostname to the Active Directory DNS server if the DNS server is configured to accept those entries.

      I suggest you contact your AD administrator and let him configure the machine so that it will work.

    Hi Deepak

    what you need to do is resorve an fixed ip address for you server in DHCP server there is an option in DHCP to resorve an ip address through your server mac address where you are planning to install WAS, On that system Click on start button -> run ->cmd ->ipconfig /all there you will find your mac address ie. physical address input that value in dhcp server as a fixed ipaddress then that ipadress will be fixed for you server.
