Sharepoint 2007 as content server for DMS?

Hi,

Knowing Sharepoint 2003 is not able to act as DMS content server.

Does any know if the new Sharepoint 2007 has this function to act as DMS content server?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Ronald

    ...is there a "best practise" to intergrate SAP DMS & Sharepoint 2007 ?

      There is no best practice. There are also no decent portal views in the SAP portal to work from so you'd be stuck creating these from scratch.

    Take a look here: [http://www.microsoft.com/isv/sap/technology/interop/sharepoint.aspx]

    For example, portal components, referred to as portlets, created for SAPu2019s Enterprise Portal

    can work with MOSS (Microsoft Office SharePoint System 2007) when shared between the portals using a

    compatible standard such as WSRP (Web Services for Remote Portlets).

    Portlets can also be shared when an implementation not based on industry standards is used, such

    as the Microsoft iView Web part toolkit or the SAP URL iView.

    Portlets for SAP are generally referred to as iViews, and portlets for MOSS are generally referred to as Web parts.

    Hi guys,

    There is a third way, where you end up using Sharepoint as your content server

    1. COnfigure a content server to use file storage

    2. COnfigure the file area for webdav

    3. The webdav is the sharepoint webdav

    Voila, you are using sharepoint as your content server.

    Why the heck you would do that is beyond me, but it works.

      Shanti,

      The customer used a separate server for the content server. You could potentially use a virtual machine, but i have not tried it.

      The user in SAP only sees the system as a normal system with a content server, and hence the normal setup with only one data carrier is enough. Remember that from your SAP side, you dont see anything outside normal - you see a content server and that is all.
