After the requirement is finalized and required things are collected, we will start installation process. The process is almost same as in case of ECC 6 installation as I wrote earlier. The only difference is we will be taking also the Java AS alongwith the ABAP AS. So there are some additional steps. Before we start the installation, we need to create the directories. Directory creation is same as ECC installation and can refer the same. Don’t also forget to check the required library and packages are already installed or not. Oh yes, even if you don’t do so the SAP installer is smart enough to provide you requirement in a nicely formatted error message. The installation starts from installation master as dumped into the D51032260 directory and as usual to run “sapinst”. Oh I forgot to mention we need to logon as root user for this installation. After the first screen appears select “SAP NetWeaver 2004s Support release 2” and expand, then expand SAP systems then expand Oracle and then Central System and finally select Central system Installation…Refer the following two screen shot for the same.

bw4 - SAPinst - Installation scenario
Now press next button. Once again let me remind, we are installing BI 7 with Oracle database on SuSE Linux System. This will take you to the parameter mode screen and select default here and press Next once more, which will take you to the selection of software units. Refer next two screen shot for the same.
bw5 - SAPInst - Default Settings
bw6 - SAPInst - Software Units
Once the software units are selected, the media browser will appear and ask to point out the media source. As we have already copied those media to the machine where installation is going on, we will be pointing out the directories. The first media asked is the “NW Java Component”. This is available in the directory D51032257. select and press next. Refer to the following screenshot for the same.
bw7 - SAP Inst Software package request
Once Java Component is not selected, we need to show the path of the JDKalso. The main important thing here is to note that the versions…Over affinity to the updated version can be a danger, time wasting etc….In fact it happened with me too. I went back and removed and reinstalled the scenario.
bw8 - SAP Inst Jdk
One thing is very important here. Once you are downloading java, either from IBM or from SUN, the corresponding “JCEUnlimited Strength Jurisdiction policy archive”. The files are available from the corresponding vendor’s site. The links are also available in the next screen where the installer will ask you for the certificate. One can also click and directly go the side or copy and paste in a browser. Refer to next screen shot for the same.
bw9 - SAP Inst JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction policy archive
Once it is sorted out and proper location is provided, we need to provide some general information e.g. SAP SID, and SAP system mount directory .i.e /sapmnt. Then it will ask the Database SID and Database host name. Please refer next two screenshot for the same.

In the next screen, the database administrator passwords will be asked along with the OS userid, groupid, which normally kept blank, unless you created the Oracle userid, DBA group and database oper group yourself. Otherwise keep it as it is, the installer it self will create the necessary userid, set group id etc.etc…As soon as this is provided, once again SAp will start asking you the location of medias…Especially, Installation export, Java Componenet NW 2004s, Oracle RDBMS . Besides it will ask you also the kernel and the Oracle Client media. Check next 5 screenshots for reference.

After everything in the above steps goes correctly, we will come to the parameter summary screen where the installer shows all the major options you choosed, and then you require to enter the solution manager key for the system. You need it, better to create a solution manager key before hand which needs a the hardware key and the SAP SID to generate. If you do not have the same, you can get it from other who do hhave a solution manager, provide the hardware key and the SID and ask for a solution manager key. As soon as you provide the same and press continue, the installer will start installing the components…In total there are forty five steps, and out of that after the completion of 9th step it will ask you to install the database. The database part of the installtion is written separately, only after completion of the same press the OK button to install the remaining part ..That is mainly installtion of the exports, that is the data structure where SAP keeps it data and programs (transactions).

  1. Hi Dude

    Good day Dude, can I have the installation for SAP ECC 6.0 SR3.
    Can share with me?

    Looking forward for your reply.

    Regards,
    jay280584@gmail.com

  2. Hi,

    The SS are too small that I can’t see the exact number on the files. 😦

    Hi Soumen,

    You have included the AS Java in the installation. Please, can you tell me if this is mandatory?
    And if not, what are the possible scenarios for using AS Java for SAP NW BW.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mohamed Awny

    • Hi Awny,

      No AS java is not mandatory, and it is better if you it in separate instance (separate ABAP and separate JAVA). The things that requires Java is like publishing BeX reps on web, connecting a MsSQL as a source server through UDConnect. You can also use it primary launch pad for testing Xcelsius report development.

      Regards, Soumen.

  4. hey can u tell me the jdk directory location pls we are using 2003 server 64 bit sap bi 7.0 nw2004

    Thx for information.

  6. Hi,
    I have installed SAP BI and ECC 6.0 in the same directory(D:).. Slowly the freespace of the directory is getting reduced. There is only 1 GB left. I have another directory(E:) of 15 GB free space.Is there any option in SAP that we can assign E: drive as primary directory so that SAP will use E: drive as primary directory for storage activities

    • Lot of things are not clear here. But assuming the database is also lying in the D drive I recommend you to move datafiles in the E drive. Although I have doubt how do you fulfill your situation by only 15 GB.
