SAP Web Dispatcher configuration in BW 3.0B

Hello All,

I am trying to configure SAP Web Dispatcher in a lab environment running BW 3.0B. Details of the configuration

Central Instance Lab1.proof.com

App server Lab2.proof.com

Instance Profile of Lab1

#Webdisp Parameter

icm/server_port_0 = PROT=HTTP, PORT=6777

icm/host_name_full = Lab1.proof.com

ms/http_port = 6778

Instance Profile of Lab2

#Webdisp Parameters

icm/server_port_0 = PROT=HTTP, PORT=6777

icm/host_name_full = Lab2.proof.com

ms/http_port = 6778

I am running webdispatcher on Lab1. So created the following directories and extracted icmadmin.SAR and sapwebdisp respectively

/usr/sap/LAB/admin ---> extracted icmadmin.SAR

/usr/sap/LAB/sapwebdisp --> extracted sapwebdisp

created SAPWEBDISP.PFL profile for web dispatcher

lab1:labadm 15% cat SAPWEBDISP.PFL

#

  • WEB Dispatcher

  1. SAPSYSTEMNAME = LAB

  2. SAPSYSTEM = 66

ms/http_port = 6778

rdisp/mshost = Lab1

#Description of access points

icm/server_port_0 = PROT=HTTP,PORT=6779

  1. icm/server_port_1 = PROT=ROUTER,PORT

Now my questions:

1) Is my "icm/host_name_full" parameter in each instance profiles is correct ? or both should list fully qualified name of my central instance i.e "Lab1.proof.com".

2) If my configuration is correct how do I monitor if HTTP load is being balanced across both servers. I am using the below url for testing http://lab1.proof.com:6779/sap/bw/bex

3) How do I configure "Administration of SAP Web dispatcher from the browser"

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Ravi

    Hello Ravi,

    Try to include directory 'admin' within directory

    'sapwebdisp'.

    You can let sapwebdisp create a sapwebdisp.pfl on your

    behalf with option '-bootstrap'.

    You will see the password for user 'icmadm'.

    and this line

    "icm/HTTP/admin_0 = PREFIX=/sap/wdisp/admin,DOCROOT=./admin"

    Then you use URL

    'http://sapwedisphost:<xxxx>/sap/wdisp/admin/default.html'

    See this documentation in

    'http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/b4/9aa8862e714e6db8e74e48e5d3283b/frameset.htm'

    (specially topic "Monitoring ..."

    Kind Regards,

    Toni

    Ravi,

    I am at the same point you were when you posted this message. I have installed the web dispatcher and I am attempting to use it with our e-Recruiting environment. I am not having any luck.

    The documentation that I have found has not been very helpful.

    Did you make any progress? If so can you share your sapwebdisp.pfl that you got working?

    Thanks.

    Michael
