Now that the Discovery system V3 has been released, it is important to know which Discovery System version you have purchased.
The out-of-the box demos and exercises are different between the versions.
The setting up the Discovery system process has also changed so make sure you have the correct setup guide before beginning the setup.
There are many ways to find out what is the version of a Discovery System, I will provide here two of the easiest ways:
From the Discovery system box itself
- Login to the Discovery System box
- Open the SAP MMC by clicking on the “SAP Management Console” icon
i. In V2, only the ERP instance is displayed in the console.
ii. In V3, both the ERP instance and the Sol (Solution Manager) instances are displayed in the console.
By accessing the Discovery system portal
(only applicable if the Discovery system was set up and the ERP system is up and running)
Login to the Discovery system portal using http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/portal (or using the IP address of the Discovery System box)
You will see a login screen asking for a user name and password. This screen displays a logo.
i. In V2, the login screen displays the standard NetWeaver logo
ii. In V3, the login screen displays “DS V3” logo
Here you can find a table comparing the the software component (SAP Discovery System Component List) differences between Version 2 and Version 3.
