VMWare Netweaver 70 Java & Abap, Performance Boost


Hi all,

a small tip how to improve the performance of the VM Edition:

0. Create and Add a new VM Ware harddisk with a link to a physical empty partition

1. Logon to Linux with root:sap123 and format the new mounted harddisk with e.g. ext3, mount the new disk to /netweaver_new

2. edit file /etc/init.d/netweaver line 30, comment out #exit 0

3. Stop ALL running Instances /etc/init.d/rc5.d/S12netweaver stop

4. Copy all files from from /netweaver to /netweaver_new with all permisions e.g. cp -fvpr /netweaver /netweaver_new

5. Change mountpoint of old WMware harddisk to /netweaver_old and change new phisical linked hardisk mountpoint /netweaver_new to /netweaver

6. Start ALL /etc/init.d/rc5.d/S12netweaver start

This is 50% faster than running from a virtual disk, have fun !
