As the title of this document states, in this guide I’ll show, how to install, configure and use SAP download manager in order to download SAP provided software from SAP Service Marketplace(SMP) on Linux operating systems. Here I have used Ubuntu 14.04 OS. So let’s get started.
Pre-requisites: Download manager needs JRE to run. Hence make sure you have installed JRE first. JRE 1.5 and above is required. Installtion of JRE, I am not going to show here. You can follow this link for more.
The steps for installation are as follows:
1. Go to SMP. Make sure you have proper S User ID with download access in order to download software from SMP.
Click on “Download Manager” on left screen.
2. The following page will come. Now click on “Version for Linux”. This is meant for Linux OS.
3. Download will start and save the file in your local file system in some directory. Then extract the file.
4. After extraction, open Terminal and go to the extracted path and then Linux/NoVM as shown below. Type the below command and installer will start.
$ sudo ./install.bin
Note the installation directory
Now the installation is finished. Let’s start the configuration.
Go to the installation directory and type the following command to start Download Manager.
Now it’s ready to download software from SMP. I hope this guide will help not only for freshers but also for experienced ones.
