This blog describes the new feature of installing Diagnostics Agents using Software Provisioning Manager 1.0 SP10 as part of SL Toolset 1.0 SPS 16. Instead of providing a complete kernel media dvd to the installer, you can now download just the relevant archives, and perform the installation with them.

Installing a diagnotics agent in the past required a complete kernel media DVD. It was also recommended to exchange SAPJVM and SAPDIAGNOSTICSAGENT with the latest available versions. Starting with the new SWPM 1.0 SP10 (available since February 15th 2016)  you can also download the specificly required installation archives for your SAP system installation instead of providing a complete SAP kernel media. You only need to download – apart from the Software Provisioning Manager 1.0 SP10 archive which is always required for an installation – the following archive files:
