SLD Setup and transport for SAP PI.

When we talked about SAP PI architecture, there is a lot of different areas to be confused about. You need to take note that the SAP PI contains multiple component which only means, those components worked together as a group for various integration instances. The components are usually applied in design time, configuration time and during run time.

In this video, you will get the full explanation about SAP PI,

On the video I discuss into detail about System Landscape Directory (SLD) by showing three different models which means 2 systems working together on one SLD. In every Process integration there can be one or two SLD systems to which information are in stored.  In every SLD, there is are components installed to which every person can view on your landscape.

When you are working on SLD, you will go through a process which means a   number of actions. First thing that you would do is to provide brief information about yourself as the owner of the system which will recognize you as the administrator. This is commonly done in systems like the “RZ70” which allows you to disseminate information from one system to the other like for instance, you want to transfer a file from a client, or assign in to a specific data base or allow access to a client to your system.

Actions can be replicated every 10 hours. You can actually duplicate all kind of systems in the “SLD Production” this contains a number of business systems. It is advisable that if you want to replicate your systems on “SLD Production” you can do it through the “SLD Production” right away to update it but you can also transport information coming from SLD through SLD Production.

Now we moved on to development in PI and how do we keep our systems organized. First thing we need to do is update our system and integrate incremental export functionality. Basically we need to back up information in the QA area then transport and import the data and systems.

But before you take this process, make sure you test them; this suits best when you are making changes in quality or production. When the changes you made in the QA, then you can transfer it production. But if you’re doing a configuration it can really be difficult. Hence when it comes to SI bridge building and other set ups make sure you to replicate your information and have a back up.
