    Hi,

    An MDM system landscape is typically structured as follows:

    �� One separate Unix-based operating system or Windows server host with the Master Data Servers

    �� Several different Windows machines with multiple combinations of MDM client components for end

    users

    �� More than one installation of MDM administration components for application administrators on the

    server and client hosts

    �� More than one installation of MDM development components for developers and portal

    administrators on Web or SOAP servers.

    If you want to install the MDM 5.5 component as part of the implementation of a SAP NetWeaver scenario, it is essential that you familiarize yourself with the contents of the corresponding master guide before starting the installation.

    The master guide is the central document for the implementation of SAP NetWeaver solutions and

    scenarios. It lists the components and third-party applications required for each scenario in an SAP

    NetWeaver solution, and refers to the required installation and upgrade guides. It also defines the installation

    sequence for the scenarios of the corresponding SAP NetWeaver solution.

    You can find the MDM Master Guide and all other MDM documentation (implementation guides and

    reference guides) on the SAP Service Marketplace at service.sap.com/installMDM.An MDM system landscape is typically structured as follows:

    You can choose between the following procedures:

    �� Install the components one by one making installation settings in a graphical user dialog.

    �� Install one component or a set of components "silently", making the settings in a Windows

    initialization file (extension .ini).

    Before the MDM Server can run, you must install and configure the database.

    Note the following when planning the MDM Server and database combination:

    �� Make sure that your operating system meets the prerequisites for the database you want to run,

    including any necessary service packs, hot fixes, libraries, or dlls. For more information, see the OS

    and DB documentation.

    �� DBMS client software must be installed on the machine that runs the MDM Server (mds or

    mds.exe). Make sure that the mdm user has the necessary rights for accessing the database client.

    mds runs as a system service. So the machine must be rebooted after the DBMS client software

    installation to refresh the path properly.

    Hope it helps
