SAP Diagnostics Agent

Hi

I'm trying to understand SAP Daig Agent installation. I checked oss notes and Agents release strategy.

Need confirmation for the following before implementing:

- We don´t have to install and set up Diagnostics Agent in the ECC server if ECC 6.0 consists only of an ABAP stack.

In our SAP Landscape, we have ECC and BI. Both ECC and BI are ABAP based installation. Diag Agent can only be install on Dual stack or Java based installation. is it correct?

- Our Solution Manager version is 7.01 (SP26) and it is dual stack installation. Here we can install DA agent.

But as our Managed server (Satellite Servers) are not Java based, is there any benefit or requirement to Install

Diag Agent only for Solution Manager server? What would be the benefit if we need to install it on Solution Manager server?

(As per my understandind, The Solution Manager Diagnostics Agent (Diagnostics Agent) is the remote component of the E2E Root Cause Analysis. It allows to perform a connection between SAP Solution Manager as the managing system and the managed system(s) and then to gather information from the managed systems and reports them to the Solution Manager system.)

- SAP Host agent is only required if we have SAP Diag agent on managed systems. I have seen SAP Host agent in ECC server (in the operating system file system). Do we need it?

- Does it mean that we need Diag and Host aganet only in Solution Manager server?

Thanks

Amar

    It doesn´t matter if the managed system is dual stack or not. if you want to use E2E on an ABAP standalone you have to install DAA.

    Yo can Install DAA in solution manager for self-diagnostics. the idea of DAA is to install on the managed systems and not only in solman, but as I said before you can use it for self-diagnostics.

    you have to check, because DAA is probably already installed due this is as per default for newer sap installations.

    The installation of 7.20 Diagnostic agent includes the SAP Host Agent. As I said before, you can install DAA in solman (probably already installed) for self-monitoring

    Hi Amarjit Nagi

    Check AgentInstallationStrategy.pdf inside of note 1365123. SAP recommends Diag Agent 7.30 SP02 for new installations and 7.20 when new installations required (only for older Managed OS platforms). Check page 16 of this pdf file.

      Hello,

      As per the stack definition under http://service.sap.com/sp-stacks you have to use DAA 7.2 SP00.

      under My Company's Application Components ->My Company's Application Components" My Company's Software" SAP SOLUTION MANAGER" SAP SOLUTION MANAGER 7.0 EHP 1" Entry by Component" Agents for managed systems

      You'll be able to download DAA 7.2 for the corresponding OS. There're no 7.3 there, because this is not the suggested version for connecting to Solman 7.01.

      The problem is that you're checking the PAM for SAP NW!!. forget about it 😉 Just install 7.2 SP00 in the managed ECC system and in the solman itself if you want self-monitoring.

      Cheers,

      Diego.
