      Steps by step configuration:

      1. Download Forums 7.0 Application from Marketplace.

      In the SAP Service Marketplace access the download area using URL

      In SAP Software Distribution Center choose Download->Support Packages and Patches-> Entry by Application group -> SAP Netweaver -> SAP NETWEAVER -> SAP NETWEAVER 2004s -> Entry by Component -> Enterprise Portal.

      You need 2 SCA files from here. Forums7.00 and KMC UI Layer 7.00

      Download SCA files necessary to install Forum Application.

      ->Choose Forums 7.00 and choose #OS independent

      Download Forums 7.00 SCA file.

      -> Choose KMC UI Layer 7.00 and choose #OS independant

      Download KMCUI SCA file. What does these files contain?

      A forum 7.00 SCA file contains the actual Forums Application whereas KMCUI contains Forums Iview template.

      2. Deploying files using SDM

      Start RemoteGUI.bat from \usr\sap\EBD\DVEBMGS00\SDM\program

      Choose Deployment. Add Forums SCA file and KMCUI SCA file for deployment. Follow the 4 steps to complete the installation.

      You need to restart the server for changes to take effect.

      You can see the Collaboration Forums iView Template in PCD.

      Goto Content Administration -> Portal Content -> Content Provided by SAP -> Templates -> iView Templates

      1. Providing basic set of Forums Iviews.

      After deploying forum application to your portal, you need to make the Forums Homepage and Forums Administrative functions accessible via Portal iViews.

      Procedure: Create custom iView Template

      SAP recommends to create a custom iView template as a delta link copy of the standard iView template delivered by SAP. The specific configuration of your custom iView template is not affected by new deployments.

      1. In the portal, choose Content Administration -> Portal Content.

      2. In the Portal Content Studio, open the folder Portal Content -> Content Provided by SAP -> Templates -> iView Templates.

      3. In the context menu of the Collaboration Forums iView choose Copy.

      4. Locate the target folder (a folder of your choice) and in its context menu choose Paste as Delta Link.

      5. Rename the custom iView template so that in the iView creation wizard you can distinguish the specific iView template from the default one.

      You may need to restart the cluster in order to see your custom iView template in the list of iView templates when you create a new iView.
