Hello all, this is Evan Stoddard, one of the Product Managers for SAP Solution Manager.
SAP Solution Manager Product Management is pleased to announce that SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SPS01 on Linux/SAP HANA was released to customers and partners via the SAP Cloud Appliance Library (SAP CAL) today. This is the first time we have used SAP CAL for the SAP Solution Manager, and also the first time we have done this in the middle of a SAP Solution Manager Ramp-up.
The scope of this system is to provide customers and partners an environment where they can upload solution documentation from their own 7.1 systems to the 7.2 system in SAP CAL, and then perform and evaluation the content activation process to make their documentation visible in the new 7.2 solution documentation UI.
By using SAP CAL, it’s possible to create a system in under 1 hour from a standard solution, and then log on an perform the upload and activation process. The system can be restored over and over from backup via the cloud infrastructure, so that the one-time activation process can be easily repeated.

The training materials for this scenario are now available on the SAP Solution Manager Early Knowledge Transfer site at http://suppport.sap.com/ekt-solutionmanager -> SAP Solution Manager 7.2 Learning Maps -> Content Activation -> Preparation -> Test and Evaluate the Solution Documentation Activation Procedure With SAP Sol Man 7.2 in SAP CAL.
