Content Server Configuration


I would like to attach contract documents (.doc and .xls) to the transaction ME33K.

The volume is estimated to 1000 X (4 files of max 250 KB per year. So approx. 1 Gb / year.

Currently I use the GOS but I do not want to store my files in the database.

I think the SAP Content Server is not adapted to my low volume. So I implemented the service http content server (in tr. SICF) but I can not configure it to a store my files on FS.

Can you help me set up my CS to use FS or explain a better solution.

I'm use NW2004 on Sun Solaris 5.9

    You can use content server to store on filesystem too - no need to use a database to store the files.

      It doesn't matter how much size of the database and the growth of the database will be
