Installation of Sandbox System

Hi experts,

I've to setup a sandbox system.

As we don't want a system copy of our productive system, I've to install the sandbox like a new ERP System.

Following criteria:

ERP 6.0 with EHP 5
Netweaver 7.0 with EHP 2

Database = Oracle 11.2.0.2.0

OS HP-UX ia 64

I already found the setup-guide:

https://websmp104.sap-ag.de/~sapidb/011000358700000749222010E

As I don't have the installation media physically, I have to download it from SMP (Page 58).

Therefore I found the following list (which is for 605).

https://websmp104.sap-ag.de/~sapdownload/011000358700001229092011E/ERP_MG_MEDIA_LIST_EHP5.pdf

But this list includes so many media names.

So can someone tell me, which files from this list I have to download from SMP?

Thix would be great

Thx in advance

Kind regards

    Hi Christian,

    Please download the following:

    51039090_1 to 51039090_12 (Installation Export)

    51040879_2 (Installation Master) (HP-UX IA/64-Oracle 11)

    51039102_14 (SL Controller 720)

    51039102_4 (Unicode Kernel)

    Apart from this download cryptographic S/W (if planning to use).

    Hopefully this is exhaustive list.

    Regards.

      Hi Ruchit,

      many thanks for the fast answer.

      Another question.

      I would like to install the sandbox on a server, on which is already a sap system running (with own db).

      I know that this is possible.

      Do you know a guide for this case or any tipps, which I have to consider?

      Thx

    Aaannndddd, another question lol

    I read, that I only have to create sapmnt and usr/sap directory.

    All other directories the system will create on there own with sapinst.

    As there is already a sap-system running on this machine, the directories exists - so I don't have to create them.

    I could see, that the system needs around 9gb for /usr/sap/<new_sapsid>.

    And also could see at the already running system, that /usr/sap/ is using another file system then usr/sap/<existing_sapsid>.

    /usr/sap = /dev/vg00/lvol7

    /usr/sap/<existing_sapsid> = /dev/vg<sapsid>/lvol1

    So how many space will sapinst reserve for /usr/sap/<new_sapsid> ?

    I guess it will create the filesystem /dev/vg<new_sapsid>... , or?

    Kind regards

      Hi guys,

      and now a realy stupid question.

      In sapinst, do I have to install the SAP NetWeaver before.

      Or is it enough to install Enhancement Package 5 for SAP Erp 6.0 ?

      ( I mean is NW included in this?)

      Thx

    Hi,

    Please note that after installation via SAPInst you will get only a 'EhP5 Ready' system with Netweaver components like (SAP-BASIS, SAP-ABA etc) on 702 level and core ECC (like SAP_APPL) components at 605 levels. For applying EhP5 to other specific components, you will need the Material 51036979_*. Use SAINT to apply the remaining components.

      Hi Christian,

      The export is meant to contain contents which would be used to build up your new installed system's database. The content is ofcourse in the form of tables containing SAP system related data.

      The media is termed as export because it is actually created by exporting content from a reference SAP internal system on which the content was developed and refined 😊 Hope this clarifies.

      Srikishan

    Good morning,

    two another questions, I hope the last one.

    As already written, I will install the sandbox on an already used machine.

    The installed system on this server is our quality/test system.

    Is it a problem, if users are working on this system while the installation is running?

    Not or? Because the system don't knows the other one, or?

    Only performance maybe weaker.

    And oracle will also be installed with the installation guide with sapinst or?
    In other words, the oracle database instance will also be installed with sapinst, or?

    Kind regards and many thx for help

      Hi,

      As Ruchit already mentioned - I would second that, the sizing would come into picture for both system running in parallel. And would recommend to perform the second installation on off-days, perhaps weekend. Because the users on the installed system are bound to face performance issues during a new installation.

      For the oracle installation, the SAPInst would guide to through the procedure. You would get a prompt during the SAPInst run, where it would list the step required for Oracle installation. After performing these you would come back and continue the SAPInst. No further steps are necessary. Also would recommend to check the Installation guide - as you might need to update latest Oracle Patches/SBPs.

      Regards,

      Srikishan

    Hi Christian,

    Another TIPs

    Using Virtualization technology you can install SAND Box system in existing QA/Testing system.

    But in this case you will need more hardware resourses so that the QA/Testing system is not affected.

    Install a virtualization software like VMware(opt for server based). Using this software, install another OS on it then, as usual install Oracle->SAP (general installtion of SAP).

      Hi Christian,

      There are 2 ways of do it:

      1. You use X-windows feature. This would need an X-windows software. Many are available in the market for example Humming Bird. You need to start the X-windows instance on your local PC. Next you will set the DISPLAY environment variable and start SAPinst with root user id. A SAPinst Gui would open on your local PC.

      2. You download sapinstgui for your PC OS/Platform and then start sapinst on your HP-UX server with -nogui option. Then you start sapinstgui of you local machine and try connecting to the HP server. This is a typical client-server model where sapinst running om HP server is a kind of server listening in coming requests while sapinstgui acts as a client.

      Good news is this process is elaborately described in all installation guides (I think under section start sapinst). Please go through that as well.

      With Regards.

      Ruchit Khushu.

    Oh thx for help,

    Sorry for my late replay, but I was not in the house last week.

    As written above, I downloaded the following:

    51039090_1 to 51039090_12 (Installation Export)

    51040879_2 (Installation Master) (HP-UX IA/64-Oracle 11)

    51039102_14 (SL Controller 720)

    51039102_4 (Unicode Kernel)

    But now, sapinst asks me for "Oracle RDBMS112".

    Is this included in one of the media above, if yes, please tell me which Directory I've to use.

    Is it "Installation Master"->IM_HPUX_IA64 ?

    If not, which media do I have to download?

    I found nothing service.sap.com for RDBMS 112.

    Many thx for great support in this thread!
