STARTING SUM TOOL ON LINUX SYSTEM

The starting procedure of SUM TOOL in Windows and UNIX is different.

In WINDOWS we can directly start tool by running batch file (SUMSTART.BAT).

But in LINUX you cannot start sum tool directly.

Software Required:

SAPHOSTAGENT.SAR

SUM TOOL

Extract both the file using sapcar.

./SAPCAR -xvf <Path of sar file/SAR FILE > -R <PATH to where you want to extract>

INSTALLATION OF SAP HOSTAGENT

Go to the path where SAP HOSTAGENT is extracted.

Run the following command

./saphostexec -install

HOST AGENT  will get installed.

EXTRACTING AND GIVING PERMISSION TO SUM

After extracting the SUM TOOL SAR File

GIVING the PERMISSION and OWNERSHIP to SUM Folder

We have to change the ownership of SUM Folder from root to <SID>adm


Use following Command:


chown <SID>adm:sapsys -r <SUM>


Changing the Permission of SUM Folder


Use following Command:


chmod 755 -r <SUM>


STARTING SUM TOOL


We cannot start SUM gui in Linux.


From ROOT USER


Go to the SUM Folder


Run the following Command:


./SUMSTART confighostagent <SID>


It will start services.

Now change from ROOT user to <SID>ADM User.

su <SID>adm

Rum the following command.

./SUMSTART

Now open the Browser in WINDOWS System.


Enter the following URL


http://<hostname>:1128/lmsl/sumabap/<SID>/doc/sluigui


hostname : hostname of the linux server where sum tool is running.


It prompts to enter the Username and password

USER : <SID>ADM

PWD:******

    HI Kunal Kumar,

    thank you for emphasizing that the prerequisite for using SUM is to have SAP Host Agent installed and configured.

    Allow me to add comments on the following points:

    • This procedure is not different between Linux and Windows operating system, both require these steps (and this is documented in the guide)
    • The script “STARTUP confighostagent” does not start the SUM (not permanently), only makes the SUM configure the required configuration files for the Host Agent
    • The URL depends on the use case: sumabap is to use SUM for ABAP stacks

    Thanks, Boris

    Hello Kunal,
    I’ve followed all the steps from your How to but I can’t connect to the sum with sidadm user from the browser.

    I’ve executed like as sidadm

    ./SUMSTART

    ++ Persisting server configuration.
    ++ Starting trusted connection with ‘_lmsl_sumabap_S4P’ …

    After that I go to browser http://hana:1128/lmsl/sumabap/S4P/doc/sluigui

    I’ve put the correct credentials but the popup for login appears again.

    What can I check to resolve this issue?

    Thanks a lot.
