    Get the installation guide and follow step by step

    Go thru this link : -> SAP NetWeaver -> Release -> Installation -> Installation Guide

    Take care while Connection XI to other systems in SLD. Follow Post installation properly. Any step if you miss may lead to difficult debugging.

    Follow proper naming conventions provided by SAP.

    SLD is system landscape directory and it contains all the Technical system and Businsess System of your XI system.

    Go through the below link for SLD preparation for your XI system:

    u may refer:

    SLD Steps for starting a XI project

    Configuration Steps

    The configuration steps that you need to perform depend on the type of system. The following system types are relevant for the SAP System Landscape Directory (SLD):

    · SAP technical systems

    The following SAP systems do not need to be configured manually since they automatically register themselves in the SLD:

    ¡ SAP Basis systems as of Release 4.0B

    ¡ All SAP Web AS ABAP systems

    ¡ SAP Web AS Java systems as of Release 6.40

    You do not need to maintain data about SAP software components and products that a system contains since their data already exists in the component repository, which is delivered with the SLD. SAP technical systems automatically register themselves and report data about their installed products to the SLD by means of data supplier programs. However, if you cannot use the data supplier programs (if your Support Package level is too low, for example), you have to define SAP technical systems manually. For more information, see Manually Registering SAP Web AS ABAP Systems.

    Other SAP systems (business systems, for example), which have to be registered manually.

    · Third-party systems

    If you have installed third-party (technical or business) systems in your system landscape, you have to register them manually in the SLD. This includes maintaining data about the software components and software products that they contain.

    SLD HELP -

    Configuring and Activating the Administrative SLD


    In this template, you perform the basic configuration of the administrative SLD. This includes the configuring and starting of both the Object Server and the Data Supplier Bridge.

      Every Netweaver product points to SLD and each layer has it's own function with SLD.

      So SLD is a must for XI for Data Transfer which has the list of all it's bussiness systems

      Regarding installation

      1) If u r not having any SLD configured before check the option new SLD

      2) If u have yet another SLD kindly provide the IP so that XI uses the same
