Best Recommendation to link Central SLD to LMDB

hi

What is your suggestion to connect central SLD on SAP Netweaver to LMDB on Solution Manager 7.1 ?

Q1.

I can think of 2 options:

1) Central SLD (NW) > Local SLD (SM7.1) > LMDB

2) Central SLD (NW) > LMDB

Is it necessary to configure a local SLD on solution manager 7.1 and pull data from the central sld (NW) to syn to the LMDB?

Or can we direct syn from central SLD to LMDB?

What are the pro and cons for the 2 options?

Q2.

During the setup of the solution manager, it is required to choose an option of the SLD Destination

1) Register in existing central SLD

2) Configure a local SLD

I realise both questions are somehow link and can affect my setup.

For instance:

if i decided for (Central SLD (NW) > Local SLD (SM7.1) > LMDB) , i will need to choose Configure a local SLD

If i decided for (Central SLD (NW) > LMDB), i will choose Register in existing central SLD.

So which is better decision? Secondly, SAP recommended to configure a local SLD. Can i configure and not used it if i happened to go for Central SLD (NW) > LMDB? SInce no local SLD is required.

Pls advise. Thanks in advance

Regards

Gary

    Hello Gary,

    The right option is

    2) Central SLD (NW) > LMDB

    Is it necessary to configure a local SLD on solution manager 7.1 and pull data from the central sld (NW) to syn to the LMDB?

    No, it is not necessary. Solution Manager's LMDB needs to be fed with a SLD, local or not.

    Or can we direct sync from central SLD to LMDB?

    Yes, you can.

    What are the pro and cons for the 2 options?

    There aren't really pros and cons. It's up to you to maintain a SLD centrally outside Solman or a local SLD in the Solution Manager.

    Regarding your Q2, please make sure you are not refeering to Solution Manager 7.0 EHP1 recommendations, because the documentation for EHP1 in fact recommends a local SLD.

    For configuration options and examples, check the [Setup Guide Landscape Management Database|https://websmp109.sap-ag.de/%7Esapidb/011000358700000551222011E.URL]. Also there's a Wiki topic article: http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=250514114

    I will leave the official recommendation part to another contribuitor to share thoughts in this topic. Meanwhile may you please point out where did you see such recommendation?

    Regards

    Guilherme
