How to install SAP NW 7.4 PO on localhost
It is not a good practice to make tests and proof of concepts on customer system, and our companys test system has different version than system of my customer, so I decided, that I will install my own NW 7.4 PO system on my laptop. Here you can find how to do that.
I have to point at the fact that this document will guide you on only one of many installation options of SAP Netweaver – Process orchestration with MaxDB on windows x64. But other options are more or less similar.
At first you have to download all installation packages. Go to http://service.sap.com/swdc log in with you SAP ID and navigate to Installation and Upgrades->A-Z Index->N->SAP Netweaver->SAP Netweaver 7.4
You have to install Software provisioning (if you don`t have one). This is tool provided by SAP, which serves as software installing platform for Netweaver. In the documentHow to install Software Provisioning Manager you can find a guide how to install one.
So if you have installed Provisioning manager click on Installation and Upgrade->Microsoft Windows->MaxDB
and scroll down to installation files links. Here is list of files you will need during installation:
|51047454_1||NW 7.4 SR1 Java based SW Comp.s 1 of 7|
|51047454_2||NW 7.4 SR1 Java based SW Comp.s 2 of 7|
|51047454_3||NW 7.4 SR1 Java based SW Comp.s 3 of 7|
|51047454_4||NW 7.4 SR1 Java based SW Comp.s 4 of 7|
|51047454_5||NW 7.4 SR1 Java based SW Comp.s 5 of 7|
|51047454_6||NW 7.4 SR1 Java based SW Comp.s 6 of 7|
|51047454_7||NW 7.4 SR1 Java based SW Comp.s 7 of 7|
|51047454_8||NW 7.4 SR1 Installation Export|
|51048107_8||SAP Kernel 7.41 Windows Server on x64 64bit|
|51046952_1||RDBMS MaxDB 7.9 RDBMS – SP8 Build 12 1 of 3|
|51046952_2||RDBMS MaxDB 7.9 RDBMS – SP8 Build 12 2 of 3|
|51046952_3||RDBMS MaxDB 7.9 RDBMS – SP8 Build 12 3 of 3|
Downloading that files will take a while because summary they are something over 20 GB in size.
When you got all that files at your local machine – unzip them using SAPCAR utility (same as you used to unzip provisioning manager).
Now you have everything prepared to perform installation itself. So go to directory, where you unziped Provisioning manager and run sapinst.exe
Now navigate through installation options tree
SAP NetWeaver 7.4 Support Release 1->MaxDB->SAP Systems->Optional Standalone Units->Process Orchestration->Standard System->Process Integration and Orchestration Package
By confirming that option you started installation process.
Next step is pretty long and contains setting all parameters of installation. Installator gives you two choices
- Typical parameters
- Custom parameters
I choosed custom parameters (even if typical are set on the screenshot)
You have to set directory JAVA_J2EE_OSINDEP_UT – you can find that in directory, where you unziped SAR 51047454
Set ID of your SAP system
I unchecked domain because in my case it caused a problems. But you can left it checked
Set the directory with kernel and MaxDB
Set master password for all users created during installation. That password have to fullfill all password creation options used in your OS, so it is better to use strong password with at least one uppercase and at least one digit.
Set domain model
Set DB ID
In that step, installator runs preinstall checks – as you can see – I didnt passed two of them, but I just ignored it and I continued with installation.
Choose disk onto which you want to install your SAP system
Set passwords for database users. Your master password is predefined, so if you dont change anything here – master password will be used.
Dont change parameters here
Set path for new DB volumes
Set password for DB Schema and secure store. Also master password is predefined
Here you can define SAP system ID and how many java server nodes will be created
Predefined message server port
Password for ICM webadmin. Master password is predefined.
Passwords for java UME users. Master password predefined.
Here you have option to install other versions of some packages. But for our case – dont change anything.
You dont need diagnostic agent
But you probably want to use SAP Netweaver Developer studio
Check your parameters before executing the installation
After that step, the installation begins and you have few hours to read how to make post install steps.
I hope it helped you to make your own Process orchestration system on localhost.
I needed some help in the installation process mentioned above. If it is fine with you could you please share your email ID.
if you want to install PO just for testing purposes (to make proof-of-concept, test mapping etc), you will be fine with any 2 or 4 core intel processor and if you put there at least 6 gb ram - you will be fine.
What if I want to install it on HANA?
Hmmm - I never tried that and if I can say - both these products are RAM hungry - in the case of HANA - it is extremely RAM hungry.
But try it - I`m really curious if it is possible.
Just one advice from me - look for as much RAM as you can get. And please write here if you will be succefull 🙂
sizing guide for HANA - https://www.ndm.net/datawarehouse/pdf/How_To_Size_BW_on_HANA_V1_2.pdf
Interesting formula for calculating RAM size is on page 8
RAM = ( colstore tables footprint * 2 / 4 + rowstore tables footprint / 1.5 ) * c + 50 GB
This constant at the end ( + 50 GB ) is really interesting 🙂
Thank you for the detail step information for the installation.
I have installed the 7.4 ABAP, but i want to add more add on like personas, UI5 etc.
It's asking for the Maintenance Certificates and xml stack.
Is there any way to get the temporary certificate, so i can try other add-on also.
Thanks & regards.
