The configuration of the ADS… where do you start?  To answer this question, we have developed several interactive forms to guide those working with NW2004 and NW7.0.  Several features of this guide are supported only with Adobe Reader 9.0 and higher.  You will be prompted to upgrade your reader if it does not meet this requirement.

Stepping thru the guide we took care to be concise and present you with only one page at a time. 

We used these icons imageimage and image links in text to support document navigation.

Download the pdf files either NW7.0 or NW2004 and let us start.

Now, Step One, what OS is ADS installed on?  Not all are supported by ADS and these are clearly marked.  This particular issue has been the root cause of a fair number of customer messages.  If you are installed on an unsupported platform click on the link to review the note provided.

Step Two, there are 3 server settings… these should have been configured during installation, but double check.

Step Three, the ADS lives on the AS Java stack and so there are two installation configurations that can you can choose from, ABAP+Java or Java only.  Will other systems be connected to this system?  If there are no other systems to be connected then there is only one configuration step.  If there are other systems that will be connected then for each type of system there are a concise number of configuration steps detailed.

We provided screen shots and overlaid dynamic text to ensure at each step what, exactly, you should see when configuring.  When stepping thru the configuration you will encounter the following image, you have reached the end of selected configuration step.  If you proceed by selecting this icon you will be presented with a ‘print view’ of the document, allowing you to see all the steps taken over multiple pages.

To return to the configuration document view select the following icon image.

We hope this tool is useful.  We are willing to extend this guide to support other configurations, i.e., SSL. So, please provide feedback to help guide our next steps.

I would like to thank my collaborators at Adobe Systems Incorporated for their invaluable support.

    Hi George,

    I like the idea of having pdf in interactive form. This way the documentation manuals will be more user friendly and attractive. With this kind of interactive manuals, it will be very easy to read more number of pages without any issues. Looking forward to see more on this.

    Thanks,
    Sivapratap

      I would suggest using Reader 9.1.2 due to hyperlink feature not available in earlier releases.  This however should not effect your navigation between pages.  So, can you tell me which OS from the list did you select on step 1?  Also, have you asked another colleague to open and navigate this form?

    Hello,

    I was wondering about the support of ADS on SunOS 5.9, SunOS 5.10. I do not see this as part of the Operating System list on page two of your document. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Regards,
    Sachin

      ADS supports in NW70 Spark 9 and 10.  However, not on the x86 64 hardware.  To keep up to date take a look at the PAM in service.sap.com

        Sorry for this… but there is an added step.  After you click on the link to download you are taken to another page… click on the button “View this Article” to see the pdf in the browser or right-click on the button and choose “save target as”. Either way should get you the pdf.

    Hi,

    I often used to setup ADS using  this document in the past, and it was very useful
    However, I’ve tried to use today, and the extended adobe features are not working….so it is quite dificult to follow the steps.
