Dear Experts,

when I searched in google I found new SWPM need stack.xml file genrated from the maintenance planner.

But in maintenance planner there is no option for IDES

How I can install it ?

Note: I did search for old version of SWPM in MP but nothing there.

Dear Boris Rubarth

Thank you for your replay .

I went through above mentioned note but it doesn't answer my question.

I downloaded all IDES media EHP7 and SWPM 1.0 SP22, when I started the SAPinst file it doesn't show install option

Is there any option or step I missed ?

The current version of the note says:

"A special installation option for IDES doesn’t exist in SWPM tool.
The path of downloaded Export-Dump for IDES needs to be entered on the sapinst dialog for path of the Export-Dump DVD."

So it is not listed under the Available Options, which are listed in your screenshot.

Regards, Boris


Dear Boris Rubarth

I didn't get how I can do it, could you please give me steps to do it ?


Dear Mr. Yousif,

you have to install a system according to the Installation Guides available in the section of System Provisioning here:

In the Software Provisioning Manager at one point of the installation you will be asked to give the location of the DVDs. Here you give the place where the IDES DVDs are located on your server.

Please also consider SAP Note 2209434 - IDES ERP 6.0 incl. EHP7 (Release 2015).

In case something goes wrong during the installation, please open an official message with SAP Support.

We only have SR1 or SR2 as option to install ERP IDES EHP7, SWPM does not recognize the export media for IDES. This seems to be an issue.

I'm also struggling with this. The SWPM need the target of the Export/DVD files. But when I add the path it give me an error about startup files missing.
