mysteriously missing documentation netweaver 2004


I have a legacy sap system (nw2004, aix 5.2, oracle 9.2, Tivoli backups) and we've recently come to the conclusion that we'd be buggered if we had to restore it from backup as no-one here has any experience of it. So we're setting up a learning server to do a similar SAP installation on to so we can put some pretend data in it, back it up to tivoli, destroy the data and restore)

should be simple? unforutnately the master guide constantly refers to "installation guide - SAP Web Application Server ABAP on AIX: Oracle" which we must download to see how to do the install. but on the NW2004 installation guide page this document does not exist and neither does anything like it.

does anyone know if there are archived copies available somewhere or if it's called something else these days. As a humble oracle DBA I find SAP stuff inpenertrable enough as it is without them hiding the documentation!

help! don't make me put a call in - they get annoyed when I put a call in about something that's not actually a bug 😉

    Hi Sarah,

    It seems there is such guide; try the following:

    1. Go to []

    2. In the "SAP Web AS" node near the bottom of the page, choose the "SAP Web AS 6.40 SR1 and Related Documentation" link.

    3. Now that you are on the right page for installation guides, choose "Oracle" in step 1, and then the AIX guide you need.

    Hope this helps,
