Installing SAP Netweaver 2004s On CentOS 5

I am planning to install SAP Netweaver 2004s on CentOS 5 on a 64bit multiprocessor Dell Server. Is it possible to install on as its a upstream vendor OS clone RHEL5. Are there any detailed HowTo(s) Guides to install.

Thanks in advance for all the help.

    Since CentOS is a clone for Redhat - technically it´s possible - but it´s not supported (Only Redhat Advanced Server and SuSE SLES are supported).

      Perfect!

      SAP installed & running smooth on Centos 5.1 after some small tweaks.Now I have a full blown SAP server based on the robust CentOS platform, ready and roaring to be put to test.

      Hi Raj,

      >After a successful install of SAP on centos and If I get problems that are non-OS related, can I seek SAP support?

      Well, you may get support from SAP, but I'm pretty sure you would have to prove that any problem is truly non-OS related. Even then, Support is likely to say that you are out of the Support agreement by installing on a non-supported OS, and not provide help. In other words, if you install on a non-supported platform, consider yourself "on your own".

      I find the use case here very dubious in the first place. Subscription costs cover support. Using another OS to get around subscription costs means you are getting around support as well!

      There is no free lunch...

      Best Regards,

      Matt
