SAP SSM HP-UX Installation

Hi All:

I have been reading throughtfully the sap_ssm_install_ssm_sp2.pdf , but I have still clear of possible landscape.

We know that SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment 7.1 SP6 can run over Oracle over HP-UNIX. However, what is not clear is why the J2EE component which has to be deployed there, which teorically be according J2EE standards operating system and database independent is only runing on Windows or in Linux on x64 bit server with MS SQL server or MaxDb as database.

Although it is clear for me that Interactive Publisher and PAS must run on a Windows x64, it is possible to have SSM installed on a HP-UNIX withouth these components.

On the guide mentioned that it is possible to install SSM on Linux/UNIX environment and it mentioned Oracle and HP-UX but considering other paragraphs, it seems only certain specific scenarios could be implemented using these infrastructure.

Unfortunately on the guide there is no mention about if these software plataform constrains depends on the scenarios or they occur for the whole tool.

Kind regards

    Hi Gonzalo,

    I am sorry that you are finding the installation guide somewhat confusing, but there are three basic components to SAP Strategy Management 7.0 and I can hopefully help explain them to you.

    Firstly, there is the application layer. This is deployed as a software component archive on NetWeaver CE 7.1. NetWeaver CE has only one stack, and that is a Java stack which supports the various web services which make up the application tier of Strategy Management. We currently support NW CE running on several platforms: Windows 2003 Server 64bit with either MaxDB, SQL Server; Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Suse Enterprise Linux, HP-UX, IBM AIX, and Sun Solaris with either MaxDB or Oracle. All of these platforms, according to the NetWeaver CE specifications, need to be 64bit.

    Secondly there is the Interactive Publisher layer. Interactive Publisher communicates with the Web Services running on NetWeaver CE, and acts as the communication piece between the application tier and the data tier. This currently can only be installed on Windows 2003 Server 64bit.

    Lastly, there is the data tier, or Application Server. Application Server can currently be installed on the same platforms as NetWeaver CE.

    So if you wanted an environment on which NetWeaver CE was running on HP-UX with Oracle, then you could also install PAS on that same HP-UX platform. However, a second machine running Windows 2003 Server would be required for the middle tier running Interactive Publisher.

    I think that this provides general information about the tiers and the platforms, but I'm not sure if it answers your specific question. If you have a specific environment in mind, please let me know and I will do my best to provide the information you need.

    Thanks and regards,
