After the first version supported mainly products based on SAP NetWeaver 7.3x, Software provisioning manager 1.0, the successor of the product- and release-specific delivery of provisioning tools, now supports products based on SAP NetWeaver 7.0x and higher:

  • Products based on SAP NetWeaver 7.0x
  • Products based on SAP NetWeaver 7.1x
  • SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment 7.2
  • Products based on SAP NetWeaver 7.3x
  • Products based on SAP NetWeaver 7.40
  • All including standalone engines  (such as SAP liveCache)

For more information, see SAP Note 1680045.

Instead of using the installation and system copy tool SAPinst from your installation media, always download the lastest version of software provisioning manager 1.0 and profit from the latest features, fixes and platform support. For example, old SAPinst versions often do not support new operating system and database versions – instead of compiling your own installation media (including reading many SAP Notes, downloading and compiling required files, and adapting command files), download software provisioning manager 1.0 and get an up-to-date version of SAPinst. Software provisioning manager 1.0 is available via the Software Logistics Toolset.

Of course, usage of software provisioning manager 1.0 is optional, so you do not have to change your reliable procedures using the old tool versions, if you are fine with them.

Nevertheless, I think it has never been that easy to profit from the following benefits:

  • One download location for all SAP products and product versions based on SAP NetWeaver 7.0x and higher
  • Regular update with fixes, new features, support for latest releases and platforms
    • Example: new database version released backwards for SAP NetWeaver 7.01? No problem, handle your system with the latest version of software provisioning manager 1.0!
  • Smaller/less SAP Notes to consider, as latest fixes are already contained in the tool

Keen on giving it a try? Download the tool and the latest version of the documentation directly from the Software Logistics Toolset page in SAP Service Marketplace at: http://service.sap.com/sltoolset (SMP login required)!

        Hi Boris,

        I have to perform a system copy of a SAP ERP 6.0 SR 3 based on SAP Nw 7.0.

        I have downloaded the SPM 1.0 SP1 for NW7.0x (70SWPM10SP01_4-20009707.sar) according to the documentation.

        Now, when I execute SAPInst I cannot find the option “SAP Business Suite 2005 on SAP NetWeaver 7.0 Support Release 3” to make a system copy, I only have the options:

        SAP Enhancement Package 1 for SAP NetWeaver 7.3

        SAP NetWeaver 7.3

        SAP Enhancement Package 1 for SAP NetWeaver 7.3 Developer Edition

        SAP NetWeaver 7.3 Developer Edition

        SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA 1.0

        SAP Business Suite 7i 2011 Java

        SAP Business Suite 7i 2010 Java

        SAP Business Suite 7 Support Release 1 Java

        Generic Installation Options

        How can I access to ERP 6.0 SR? I guess it is included in this tool because the next directory is in SPM path:

        \SWSAP\NWSPM10\BS2005\ERP60SR3

        Thanks.

          Hi Pablo,

          Please make sure you really have extracted the 70SWPM*.SAR archive and started SAPinst from there, not the SWPM*.SAR archive (without “70” in the beginning) – I just checked the archive on Microsoft Windows (X86_64) and I see the following options in the 70SWPM*.SAR archive:

          • SAP NetWeaver 7.0 EHP3, EHP2, EHP1, SR3
          • SAP Business Suite 7i 2011, 7i 2010, 7 SR1, 2005
          • SAP Solution Manager 7.1 SR1, 70 EHP1

          Under SAP Business Suite 2005, SAP ERP 6.0 SR3 would be listed.

          The options listed by you above look like the contents of the other archive (for systems based on SAP NetWeaver 7.3x). If you are still facing the issue, please let me know by sending me an email (email address should be visible in my profile).

          Thanks + best regards,

          Boris

    Blog revised after the release of SL Toolset 1.0 SPS07: title slightly updated and added information about further product versions now also covered by software provisioning manager 1.0 (that is, products based on SAP NetWeaver 7.1x and SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment 7.2)
