Hello Guys,

Recently I have installed SFTP addon in NW PI 7.5 using SUM 15 tool. I am going to write this blog, how to install it using SUM 15. I hope this would be helpful to everyone.

Take offline backup of PI system before starting to apply addon.

Download SFTP adapter from below path. For more information, kindly refer SAP Note (1695521).

Put appropriate source of SFTP adapter in PI system (PIB2BSFTP*.SCA, SAPCAR file etc.) SFTP component.

SAPCAR and SUM component : Make sure appropriate permissions are provided to SUM component as per screen shot. Ideally it should be <sid>adm:sapsys.

Extract SUM tool in /usr/sap/<SID> directory.

When click on Next button, SFTP component will start deploying and Java system will automatically restart after successful deployment.

After successfully deployed SFTP component, go to http:<hostname>:50000/nwa/sysinfo

In component info, search for SFTP, it will show deployed component of SFTP.

Capture27.PNG

PIPB2BSFTP component deployed, means SFTP is installed in PI.

Now, go to http://<hostname>:50000/nwa

Capture28.PNG

Capture29.PNG

sftp adapter should be started.

Up to this we have deployed addon SFTP in PI system to use it.

To use SFTP in configuration with IB (Integration Builder) and ESR (Enterprise Service Repository), we must have to deploy SFTP adapter in ESR, otherwise it will not be useful .

How to deploy SFTP in ESR, for that I will create new blog soon.

    Hi Serigo,

    As discussed, it is not required to reboot whole system. When u install using SUM tool, after successful installation, java instance automatically restarted to take effect of sftp adapter. Hope this answer your question.

    Hello Harshil I was doing the same installation using SUM tool version 17.

    However, I’m not getting option for Manual Directory. It just shows me screen which asks for stack file path.

    Can you flash some light? Am I doing some mistake? Why I’m not getting option for Manual Directory? Just for deploying one component do I need to generate stack file?

      Hi Mories,

      I have used SUM17 to upgrade EHP. You are right that in SUM17 it directly asks for stack file path. But in this case I have used SUM17 for ABAP. I hope you are using SUM for JAVA, if not please check with it first. If in SUM JAVA also, it is not asking manual directory, I would recommend to use SUM15 for JAVA or you can use telnet to deploy single component.
