EWA and SLR reports in different solutions, possible?

Hi,

We have a central Solution Manager to manage all the SAP systems of one of the business units of our company with 5 plants in different countries (Germany, USA, Argentina, Spain). The systems of each plant are administrated by the local SAP administrators in each plant so we have defined 2 solutions (productive and non-productive systems) for each plant and the EWA reports are activated in these solutions. We have another "reporting" solution for our IT Managers (situated centrally in Germany) with the productive systems of all the 5 plants. The SLR reports are activated in this solution.

So the solution landscape in our SolMan is as follows:

- Solution Plant1 productive systems: EWA reports activated for the systems

- Solution Plant1 non-productive systems: EWA reports activated for the systems

- Solution Plant2 productive systems: EWA reports activated for the systems

- Solution Plant2 non-productive systems: EWA reports activated for the systems

(...)

- Solution Plant5 productive systems: EWA reports activated for the systems

- Solution Plant5 non-productive systems: EWA reports activated for the systems

- Solution Reporting (all plants productive systems): SLR reports activated for the systems

SLR report data is obtained from the EWA reports... so, must we activate too the EWA reports for the systems of the "Solution Reporting"? If we activate the EWA reports for the systems in this solution they would be duplicated (in 2 solutions) so there would be a duplicated extraction job bein executed in the satellite systems and the EWA data would be duplicated in the SolMan. I mean, is EWA report data "solution specific" or is it "system specific" and then once it is generated in one solution it can be executed for the SLR reports of a different solution?

Thanks in advance,

Jon

    Based on my understanding of your landscape there is EWA produced for all productive systems from all plants at the moment -therefore it would make sense that any SLR should be produced from these existing EWA - not in a new solution or Solman system.

    • Hi,

      A new solution is necessary for reporting because our IT Managers must have a SLR report with ALL the production servers of ALL THE PLANTS (the other plant-specific solutions only have the systems of each plant).

      According to your reply I understand that the SLR report in the reporting solution will show no data because no EWA is executed in that solution (but yes in the other plant-specific solutions), so I will have to schedule too the EWA reports in the reporting solution, is it right?

      Thanks again,

      Jon

    Documentation on how to fufil this business requirement where you want a separate solution in the same Solution Manager system containing the same systems for which EWA is already running in other solutions is a little hard to find

    I feel EWA is system specific - if by system specific you mean you can only get 1EWA/SLR by system not by solution

    Another issue might also be adding systems currently in other solutions to a new solution

    I could be wrong though - maybe there are other experts out there that can enlighten us

    Best wishes

    If a system is defined in two solutions, and that systems role matches the primary role of the solution in each solution,

    EWA will be turned on by default and data extraction runs twice.

    I can attest to that personally - no need to read docs....

    Hi Ken

    Is there any special considerations for SDCCN, BACK destination or Solution Manager having EWA/SLR run on the same system for 2 different solution managers ?

    Sorry let me rephrase

    Are there any special considerations for SDCCN, Back destination or Solution Manager running 1 system with EWA/SLR in 2 solutions ?
