Installing SAP Disclosure Management 10.1

 

This document explains what is installed during a server installation of Disclosure Management 10.1 In the following articles I will further explain the configuration and installation/configuration of additional components (Task Engine, XBRL, client etc.)

 

The Disclosure Management installation files can be found here:

https://support.sap.com/software/installations.html

 

For the Installation Guide, check:

http://help.sap.com/bodm

 

 

Installation procedure

 

1. Starting the installation

Unzip the “51049916.zip” file and go to the DM_SERVER_APPL_SERVER_10_1 that has been created when extracting.

Run the DMAPPLSERV00.exe file (note: this is DM 10.1 SP00, the zip also contains the Service Packs (SP01, SP02, SP03) and if you have never installed Disclosure Management, you can start with any SP installation)

3. The prerequisites

Note: if prerequisites are not met, you need to install these separately, they are not included in the DM installer

4. SQL Server details

SAP Disclosure Management will create a DB on MS SQL Server (no other RDBMS are supported)

On the first screen, the server, DB name and the user/password are provided

Note: this user/password is for the creation of the DB, it is not the authentication used by the application to connect to the DB at run-time

5. Database server credentials

Here the user/password is provided that will be used by Disclosure Management to connect to the DB

Note: if the user does not exist, the install procedure will create it

6. Application server settings

Specify settings for the DM application. These are mostly IIS settings (port, binding etc.)

Note: it is recommended to install DM as a 64-bit application

The default path where DM will be deployed is C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SAP\SAP Disclosure Management

7. Application server security settings

DM can be installed with Basic or AD authentication (note: this is for the actual login to the DM application, it is not related to the SQL server authentication)

What has been installed?

 

Let’s check what the installer has installed.

 

 

1. SQL Server

A database called “DisclosureManagement” (based on step 4.) and a user called “CDMUser” (based on step 5.) The user has access to the DM database (2 roles are created)

Within the DB, the table “Security.Users” has 1 record, the user “Admin” (based on step 8.)

2. Application server (IIS)

Within IIS, DM will have created its own application pool

The main DM website is also deployed (various settings based on step 6.)

The code and configuration files are in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SAP\SAP Disclosure Management

(again, based on step 6.)

The “web.config” file will have details on authentication mode used (Basic or Active Directory)

Testing the installation

 

You should be able to connect to URL http://dsm101/Account/LogOn

 

(Note: based on selected settings, this may be http://server:/<dm_site>:port/Account/Logon or  http://server:/<dm_site>:port/Account/LogonAD)

With the login/password given in step 8.you should get this screen, indicating the SAP Disclosure Management application server installation is successfully completed.
