Is multi-server installation of SAP BPC 10.1 Microsoft possible on Azure servers ?

Installation needs to happen on multiple virtual Azure servers :

- one app server

- one db server

- one ssas server


Connection from app server to DB and ssas server is only possible through an

AD account. This AD account is admin of the app server. However, when executing the installation, it cannot connect to the DB server.

Is this configuration supported by SAP ?

    Hi Wouter,

    As I understand you are installing A SAP NW (ABAP) on HANA in MS azure servers in distributed environments.

    If this is the case,it is possible without any issue.

    Since we are running multiple sap nw systems in azure with HANA database.

    Best Regards,

    Hello Wouter,

    In KBA

    2583909 - BPC-MS:support for Windows Server 2016

    It is stated :

    Only Microsoft Windows Server 2016 on Microsoft Azure is supported from BPC-MS 10.1 SP08.

    There is also :

    2525937 - Installation failure on Microsoft Windows Server 2016 on Microsoft Azure with IIS 10.0

    You can also search for the information in the PAM :

    • Hi Dorra,

      thanks for your response.

      We are installing BPC-MS 10.1 SP10.

      Installing BPC with a single server configuration on Windows Server 2016 Azure is not an issue.

      However, the requirement is to install BPC MS on two Azure instances :

      - Windows Server 2016

      - SQL DB 2016


      As the SQL DB 2016 is an Azure managed instance, it is not possible to connect through Windows authentication,

      but only using an AD account. So I wonder whether the installation is still possible using this setup, or that with

      Azure, Single Server is the only option.
