Hello Friends,

 

You have SLD up and running now Document

 

Now its time to install SAP Diagnostic Agent and configure it with SLD and register it in SAP Solution Manager

 

Start SWPM and navigate to General Option >> Diagnostics in SAP Solution Manager >> Install – Diagnostics Agent with 7.45 Kernal

 

Note: Make sure you have kernal DVD available (You already have it at the time of SPS 03 upgrade)

 

Provide Media files as required for installation

 

Provide your SAP Solution Manager host name (Local Server name)

 

Provide Instance name

 

Make sure you select Local Domain as for users

 

Provide Instance number

 

SLD Destination : Select Register in Existing Central SLD and Use HTTPS

 

 

Provide SLD connection information

 

 

Connection to solution manager is also HTTPS

 

Provide hostname and port of your solution manager

 

Note: We previously configured P4SEC port : Adding in in SCS  profile

Note: Please remove username and password

Note: In some cases we found that HTTPS port on SLD is not working properly to push system data. Please change it to HTTP and see its working for you or not.

Wait till installation finish

 

 

Once installation complet open : JAVA https://host:port/smd/AgentAdmin

 

You will see one agent is waiting to be connected under Non-authanticates Agents

 

Go to Non-authanticates Agents TAB and first Update Agents

 

 

After update comnplete Trust Agents

 

Filally you will find 1 agent online as below

Note: For Diagnostics Agent and HA Support

Now next step to Configure SAP Solution Manager system

      Hello,

      Running that command you can register your DAA in to any SLD you want

       

      smdsetup sldconf hostname:”mySLDhost.domain.corp” port:”<SLD HTTP Port>” user:”SLDDSUSER” pwd:”xxxxxx”

      This is the only way to register DAA in multiple SLD or change user.

      Thanks

    Hello, Yogesh.

     

    You know what is the SWPM you use? I have SWPM SP19, but the option “Install Diagnostic Agent with Kernel 7.45” is missing!

     

    Best regards and thank you so much

        Hello Yogesh,

        I have installed solution Manager 7.2 SP06

         

        when I am the step infrastructure preparation http connectivity

         

        ICM for External Access for Java I am not able to select the https.

        eventhough I have configured scs parameter for msport it is still not allowing.

        I have configured via parameter port for java scs 444$$ but it is not activating I have checked using telnet as well .

        In my case I tried registering the agent using smdagent.sh  for the 444$$ port it is getting successful . but it is still activating the following service at the os level.

        in my case I am using self-signed certificate .

         

        2: second question : for sending to the CA authority do I need to send the system export pse file or server standard pse.for ABAP

        3: For JAVA do I need to import any certificate in ABAP system for Solution Manager is it required or not.

        3: pertaining to Root certificate do I need to import in ABAP and JAVA as well to make ssl works .

        can you please put some light on this issue.

      Hello Jerry,

      Did you connect them to SLD?

      Once you connect them to SLD perform host system configuration wizard

      Thanks

    Hi Yogesh Patel

    I am using your blogs as guide to install SOLMAN 7.2 in Windows Server OS/Oracle12c/SWPMSP21/KERNEL745

    During installation of DiagnosticAgent, I have encountered the step where I will locate the file path of the following below

    I have entered the path to kernel-DBINDEP and got status of still missing

     

    Do you have any idea regarding my concern?

     

    Thank you.

            Hi,

            If I locate the folder where this SAR file located it throws me a status of “STILL MISSING” and if I locate the specific file I get this warning.

            Archive file ‘G:\solman\DAA\SAR\SAPDIAGNOSTICSAGENT.SAR’ did not match. See info file.

              Note  1858920 – Diagnostics Agent installation with SWPM is misleading. If you check the scan log:

              You will be able to find out what the scan is complaining about:

              For example, you are trying to use Kernel 7.45 (last release offered as “KERNEL FOR INSTALLATION/SWPM”) but you can see that only kernels 721, 722 and 749 are allowed.

               

              You have to provide last patches for SAP Kernel (DB independent part), SAP JVM 6.1 and SAP Diagnostics agent. (they have filenames like: SAPEXE_401-70001625.SAR, SAPJVM6_106-10006989.SAR, SMDA710_SP11_5-80002931.SAR)

                Hi Jose/Yogesh,

                Please suggest if you know any solution to the Diagnostic Agent install..I tried 745 & 749 Kernel. But unable to understand / interpret the Info link

                Notes – 1365123 / 2465430 / 1858920 are quiet misleading.

                    Thanks it worked, downloaded latest version of SAPJVM6

                    Download new SWPM SP22 and manually these files

                    SAPJVM6 = SAPJVM6_106-10006998.SAR

                    SAPEXE = SAPEXE_1000-10011367.SAR

                    SAPDIAG = SMDA710_SP11_5-80003511.SAR

    Hello Yogesh,

    Thank you very much for your blog. In “Provide SLD connection information” section, you use the sld user “SLD_DS_<SID>”. I don’t find this user? Do we have to create it first? If yes,  what are the role type to define for this user ?

    Thank you for your help.

    HI Yogesh,

     

    Thank you so much for you response,

    I have only AS ABAP ECC  on HANA. so it mean i have to install the DAA on the host where ECC on hana is installed?

     

    Secondly, I am configuring Solution Manager for VAR support, do i need to configure Wily Introscope?

      Hi  Former Member,

      Yes, You need DAA on SAP solution manager. Wily can be installed on SolMan host. You need Wily for JAVA system EWA and monitoring. You need to specify willy as part of solman configuration. Yes you need DAA on your ECC server and connect to solman.
