Netweaver 2004s does not have SD?

Hello there,

We have installed netweaver 2004s (with BI 7.0) on a Microsoft windows NT/MSSQL system.

The transactions for SD are missing - same for HR transactions.

HR is not listed in the transaction SAINT.

Can someone please input some links on how to incorporate HR into this NW 2004s system?

    Hi Casey,

    The SAP NetWeaver "standalone" does not include SAP ERP or any other SAP business applications. SAP NetWeaver is the technology layer that is used by applications for all it technical needs.

    You have 2 options for installing SAP NetWeaver;

    If you install SAP NetWeaver 7.0 using the SAP NetWeaver installation kit, you will get SAP NetWeaver only (e.g. the AS ABAP usage type). This is called a "standalone installation" (i.e. not within an application)

    If you install SAP ERP 6.0 from the SAP ERP installation kit, the application will be installed with all the required SAP NetWeaver 7.0 technology it needs for development, runtime, lifecycle management, etc (i.e. SAP ECC running on AS ABAP). The technology needed to be installed is determined based on the application functionality you need. You can find all the planning info in the SAP ERP 6.0 master guide.

    You can find master guides and installation guides at

    So what options do you have if you want SAP ERP functionality?

    It is not possible to install SAP ERP onto an existing SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP installation so you would have to delete the SAP NetWeaver installation and re-install SAP ERP 6.0.

    I hope this makes sense to you. Sorry if this means a lot of rework for you.


    P.S. SAP NetWeaver 7.0 = 2004s (it was renamed to 7.0!)

      >why can not we install erp 6.0 on netweaver (2004s) or( 7.0).

      Because the SAP company decided it would not be possible.

      I think this is a question of licensing.

      The confusion comes very often because Netweaver is both a technical concept (technical layer) and a licensing concept.

      Some products are technically based on Netweaver but not at all from the licensing point of view.

    So, the answer also means that you cannot install an ECC 6.0 on top of an existing NW 7.0 installation, right?

    • Hi Michael,

      It is not possible to install SAP ECC (SAP ERP) on an existing ABAP stack.

      It is however possible to install SAP ERP business packages on an existing Portal depolyment but this is not SAP ECC.
