  • Excelent tutorial, for the people that try to do it with VMWare 7.0 does not work at step 18 (Import) i did it  because was alreay installed with Virtual Box no problem at all
  • Hi Faisal

    Thank you for the hard work – producing this very detailed guide! I’m going to try it as soon as the downloads finish!

    You’ve used the latest version of the JRE – did this really work? The download page for NetWeaver 7.01 ABAP Developer Edition SR1 SP3 clearly states JRE 1.4.2.x…

    My experience with installing Portal 7.0 NW2004s (Java stack) is that if you do not use the exact JRE requested, it will crash & burn quite badly…

    • Hi, Rudolf

      I mention all the steps of my Successful Installation, so i am sure that Latest JRE will work with it.

      I think for ( IDES or Portal 7.0 NW2004s (Java stack) ) it is Obligatory to install jdk1.4.2.x… but in the this case it is not.

      Hope you understand, Please reply in case of any confusion or need any help regarding installation.

      Thanks and Regards,

      • Hi bro,

  • First of all: Thanks for this great tutorial!
    It was a great help.

    After the installation I run in problems when using Webdynpro, which needs a FDQN to generate the URL. So try to enter localhost here if you are doing a local installation. If this isn’t accepted you have to set parameter icm/host_name_full = localhost with transaction RZ10. You can also insert icm/host_name_full = localhost in instance profile file  usr\sap\nsp\sys\profile\*.pfl manually.
    Furthermore you have to activate the services with transaction SICF.
