. (you must have a valid SDN Id).
I was not able to find a suitable document that will help me in configuring the ESR part. I followed many pdfs, blogs etc but not able to get the perfect answer and even there are lot of questions floating on the forum regarding the setup od ESR. There are only 9 steps in which ESR can be configured. Many people have many opinion about this installation and when I tried with those unfortunately I always failed. So from deep research and going through many documents I came to certain facts that they need to be done in order to install and configure the ESR.This blog will help you in configuring the ESR part after installing the CE7.1 Application Server and ESR separately.Many times I have to format my system and I became very much pathetic. So this is the Vanilla for the ones who are going to install ESR. Follow the steps and you will come up with complete installation without any failure (All the best)

Navigate to CompEnvCE71_03_IM_WIN_I386_ADA (when you are installing for Windows XP SP2). Double click the sapinst.exe. Very user friendly interface is there which will help in installation.
Step 4. Creating user:
Log in to the portal by using the credentials for the hostname and the port like
, where is the port number of your server.Create user ESRSLD<CE system name>, for me CE system name is CE1, so the complete user name is ESRSLDCE1 and assign the following roles to him.
If you don’t know how to create user follow the steps:
Go to User Administration > Click on Create User.
In the Login ID give the name as* ESRSLDCE1*
Fill other mandatory fields and optional fields as per your choice.Now click on Assigned Roles tab. In the Search Criteria, choose All Data Source and in the input field next to it put SAP_XI_IR_SERV_USER click on Go, select it and click Add. Similarly to assign another role give the input as SAP_SLD_CONFIGURATOR and click Go, select it and click Add.Click on Save and Log Off from the Portal.
