    Content server can be used. Other than not being able to store to optical media, there are no real disadvantages.

      Dear Athol Hill,

      Thanks fore the quick reply,

      let me with other DMS community cleary understand the Pros and Cons of Going for the content server storing of original files,

      i belive SAP recommends to go for the SAP Content server installation for storing of original files for DMS? please explain in your own words.

      so if we use same content server for storing original directly and also Archiving, do you mean to say that the original files stored in Archiving portion of the content server be copied to CDs and DVDs,

      if this is the case can there be tranfer of the Original files from one repository of the content server (acting as DMS storage ) to another Repository (acting as Archive Storage)

      so if this transfer is made then any original files can be copied to Optical drives,

      one basic question i have is all this original storage device like this Content server, Archive and Vault do only act as Secure storage system? or is that only the feature of Content server?

      if so then even if we copy the Archived files in to CDs and DVDs. they cannot be viewed directly with out the Help of SAP Logon transaction. is my understanding right?

      is there any Storage System that is Supported by SAP which allows Data be stored other than Secure storage Area,and making it available outside SAP transaction for later use.

      Thanks and regards
