Is it possible to Install ECC 6 on NW 7

Hi SAPers,

I have a small question:

I have managed to install NW 7 with:

SAP_ABA 700 0014

SAP_BASIS 700 0014

PI_BASIS 2005_1_700 0014

SAP_BW 700 0016

BI_CONT 704 000

Now when I want to use data sources from say SD or FI for BI, obviously they are not available.

To make them available, I want to install ECC6 onto the same system. Question is, is that possible? OR do I need to install that on a completely different system.

As you can imagine, I am pretty new to SAP and BASIS.

All guidance will be highly appreciated. If there are any docs, etc that will help me understand the way this can be achieved will be very helpful.

Also related to the install, what is the main difference between BS2005 and ECC6? As I can see in the download list that there is a BS2005 SR3 Installation Master Windows Server on x64 64bit and there is SAP ERP 6.0 SR3 Installation Export 1 of 6 to 6 of 6.

Thanks in advance.

    No, it is not possible.. ECC 6.0 is entirely different system which is based on netweaver release.

    BS2005 is Business suit which combine of many SAP products like SAP ERP, SAP CRM etc.

      Hello Manish,

      I've done this before for testing some BW/BI functionality.

      For me it was enough to add on BI_CONT and then, the BI guys could play around.

      But I agree with Sunny, you have to look for a guide around there that might give you more info about your particular case.

      Otherwise, you'll end up doing much more work correcting error messages or redoing the install.

      Best regards,
