How to generate Solution Manager Key for SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SR3 installation

Hi All,

I am in the middle of SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SR3 installation(with Oracle s DB) on Windows 2008 64-bit platform and stuck at a point wherein the installation proces is asking for Solution Manager key. I did some browsing and found out few ways to generate keys:

1. Using SMSY transaction

Reason i could not use: I am not aware of the process of how to use SAP Easy access and also i believe it is not possible to use this transaction without completing the Net Weaver installation

2. Installation process prompts for generating Solution Manager Key

Reason i could not use: There was no prompt for generating Solution Manager key while doing installation

Here i am not able to move forward without using Solution Manager Key and i am not aware of the process of generating key.

Please let me know if i have missed something while doing installation and suggest me the way i can generate Solution Manager Key.

Thanks a ton...

      Hi David Garrison,

      For Installation of sap system will ask for solution manager key for getting solution manager key you have to install solution manager then generate solution manager key.

      You can get solution manager software from sap market place ( https://websmp104.sap-ag.de/support ; -


      > Downloads -


      >SAP Installations & Upgrades -


      > Entry by application group -


      > SAP Technology Components"----> SAP SOLUTION MANAGER . Then you have to get solution manager software.

      Regards,

    Thanks for the information Zia.

    I believe i have Solution Manager installed on different Windows box.

    1. Can i use it to generate Solution manager Key for my instance id?

    2. Do i need to provide details of this Solution Manager in the System Landscape Directory(SLD) screen of NetWeaver installation by selecting SLD destination as "Register in existing SLD (default)" and here provide the details of the Solution Manager installed on different box?

    or if something else needs to be done then please let me know.

    Thanks,

    David

      Hi David,

      1. You can use the solution manager in your landscape to generate the solman key for your installation. Please use the above given procedure to generate.

      2.You must decide on the SLD part before you select "Register Central SLD" i.e. You should decide whether you want to have a central SLD for your landscape or local SLD. If you have multiple SAP systems, then you can go for Central SLD. Please check the SLD post installation guide available on the marketplace.

      Cheers...,
