    Looks good. We just finalized an implementation on 3.1 where we built a lot of custom stuff that is now part of standard 4.1. In which version in SO creation expected to be there?

        Excellent article Manju.

        One question:

        Are you planning to make one article similar to this for the SAP CRM Service Manager 4.2 that is now ready to be downloaded from the Support site?

        Best Regards,

        Emanuel

    Hi Manju,

    I would like to ask regarding the Vehicle Stock Component.

    Would it be possible to install/implement the Vehicle Stock Component feature on an existing installation of SAP CRM Service Manager 4.1 on an SMP Server?

    And if so, hoping you can share steps to achieve this.

    Thanks,

    John

      Hello John,

      It is very much possible. Please look at deployment scenario’s section for this blog.

      For detailed configuration steps, please  refer Service Manager product configuration manual on how to integrate vehicle stock component into Service Manager.

      Thanks

      Manju.

        Hello Manju,

        Thank you for your response. From the configuration guide and deployment scenarios, I only see two items:

        1. SAP CRM Service Manager 4.1
        2. SAP CRM Service Manager 4.1  with Vehicle Stock component


        For me, it gives the impression that this is really not much like an “add-on” but rather an “Install it from the start, or not at all” type of component. I have not found anything in the document (SM 4.1 but I did find one for SM 3.1) suggesting it can be installed on top of an exisiting installation.


        Can you help shed light on thigs?


        Thank you very much

        John

          John,

          Nothing has changed from 3.1 to 4.1 when it comes add-on installation .  One thing u need to understand is vehicle stock components integrates with ECC. So u have to install Add-on on ECC  and  do required configuration on CRM side for vehicle component to work.   Everything   is documented in configuration guide.

          Thanks

          Manju.

    Thanks for writing a informative overview. I am implementing Syclo Service Manager 4.2 at one of our client and facing a typical issue during the initialization, device gets timed out for uploading ‘CTPRODUCTCATEGORY’ . The message I get is Communication Error (14), ‘Angel’ connection failed, Ending transmission.

    Please help.

    Thanks,

    Anup
