I was just remembering how I was struggled to understand LMDB in SM 7.1 SP1 in my own sandbox; Those days I don’t have any source for reference except the guide from SAP and the blog #sapadmin:: How to assign Product System in SOLMAN 7.1 & How LMDB, SLD, SMSY and Landscape Verification work in SOLMAN7…

During that time it was big debate with Tom Cenens in the blog Solution Manager 7.1 Landscape Management Database – A motorcycle or a bike? about easy usage of LMDB, Later SAP come forward and clarified the road map, need and necessity of LMDB Evolution of Landscape Data Management – What’s better with LMDB?

Before that, Thanks to Wolf Hengevoss for his continuous effort to bring the product much simple and more powerful.
