SAP Solution Manager Key on 7.1

Hello forum,

Today I see a mail from some “SAP Consultant” asking us why SAP Solution Manager Key don’t work on SMSY…

Well, as indicated on the next SAP note, Solution Manager Key is no longed provided trough SMSY transaction, you have to do that using LMDB as indicated on note:

1888840 – How to generate installation keys in Solution Manager 7.1

You can see on the next pictures how to access to that LMDB functionality:

LMDB stat screen



To do that you don’t need to finish the managed system setup, you can select any system on LMDB technical systems selection and then click on Generate Installation Key, then on the next screen only fill the fields with the correct information to generate the KEY.

I check SAP notes to see if there is any new update about that, and found the next one interesting:

811923 – SAP Solution Manager Key

“…The SAP Solution Manager Key is no longer required…

I don’t install SAP software but it’s curious to see people for Solution Manager Key, and there is a note where SAP indicate that the key is not longer required :-O

Anyone have more information about that last SAP note ?

Best Regards,

      Hi Luis,

      As of NW 7.3 you no longer needed the key,

      even before also most of them used either scripts like this to generate keys
