difference between SAP SLD and SAP Management console

Hello,

It seems that both System landscape directory and SAP management console have some overlapping features. The services can be started or stopped in both. Is it true? Does anyone know the difference between these 2 and where does Solution manager fit in?

Thanks

Shailik

    Hi,

    Nope, SLD and SAP MMC are totally different thing and for different purpose. SLD is representation of your system landscape (SAP or non-SAP) and store various details about them, you really can't stop/start actual system from SLD.

    SLD is just representation or kind of representation of you entire landscape. You can find more information here: System Landscape Directory (SLD)

    and here: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/fe/39ae3d47afd652e10000000a114084/content.htm

    SAP MMC on other hand is used for the task you are describing.

    Hi,

    SAP SLD is the central information provider in a system landscape.this contains both Component information and Landscape description.COMPONENT Info in sense all the sap products and components along with their versions, And also third party products also.LANDSCAPE desc in sense the description of all the systems in particular landscape.

    Example:This can shows exact idea for you.Components like CAF,Webdynpo(WD-java),BPM etc info.And the host names,Message server ports etc.Here we dont have start/stop functionality.

    SAP MC provides a common framework for centralized system management. It allows you to monitor and perform basic administration tasks on the SAP system centrally, thus simplifying system administration. Using the SAP MC you can

    1.Monitor and control (start, stop, or restart) the SAP system and its instances with a single tool

    2.Monitor system alerts

    3.Display the list of all access points to an SAP system etc.

    We can see difference by looking into http://<host name>:<port>/index.html

    Look and feel are also differ.

    For more info you can go through these links of sap help.

    For SAP SLD:http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/fe/39ae3d47afd652e10000000a114084/frameset.htm

    For SAP MC:http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nwce10/helpdata/en/44/c707c053550f2ce10000000a1553f7/frameset.htm
