Which MAXDB version for a new Content Server?

Hi All,

we are planning a new SAP Contentserver to connect all of our non-productive SAP Systems to it.

My problem at the moment is that i couldn´t find a good documentation on how to install a contentserver with a newer release of MaxDB, e.g. 7.8 or 7.9. Or, what is a good and stable release for a contentserver?

I found a lot of (a bit confusing) information about running a SAP system under MaxDB, but nothing about contentserver.

The machine we want to use for that is a VMWare server, running Windows server 2008R2, 2 CPU, 4GB Ram.

We think of creating several Databases on this server, one SDB for each SAP-system (~6) with different port nubers.

Thanks in advance

    Hi Martin,

    In the content server environment, you use the SAP MaxDB database with Version 7.7 or 7.8.

    Refer SAP Note 1571193 - Using MaxDB Versions 7.7 & 7.8 in the content server system

    • Hello Deepak,

      thank you for your helpful answer.

      I´ve downloaded the latest MaxDB ( from SAP SWDC.

      As i wrote a detailed and good installation manual would be nice, since there are some new options in 7.8.

      (e.g. private data path(?) and i would understand a little bit what i´m doing.

      Thank and Best Regards
