It has been a while since my first experience with the new web based SUM 1.0 SP14/15. Now we are at the same tipping point with SWPM 1.0 SP20.

When I start sapinst.exe as usual, I do not get the familiar fat client but the following message to connect with a web browser:

Which I do and is in fact very convenient. In my case, I just upgraded a Solution Manager to 7.2 and must perform a Dual-Stack Split:

The first improvement I realize is that warning messages do not appear a potentially overlooked pop-up windows any longer, but fully integrated into the user interface:

And then, like SUM, I got the full overview of my task list so that I know exactly where I am in the procedure:

Finally, of course, I got all my log files at hand:

Again, how cool is that?!

    On AIX when installing a new System there is only root user available in the beginning.

    I used root and root password and it was fine.

    Hi Frank,

    For login to GUI URL SIDADM &PWD it’s working but i am getting the error while Export of java stack –

    FYI– this is in  AIX environment.

    could you please let me know SWPM SP20 is compatible or i have to go for lower version of SWPM (SP19 or SP18)?

     

    thanks,

    Regards,

    Raj.

      Hello,

       

      Do you able to figure out whats the issue?

      I don’t remember exactly but there is one SAP note which discusses about the issue. And probably you need to import that into system too.

    Hello,

    we run the new sapinst on linux x86_64 SLES 12 and are wondering if it’s necessary to start the process as root AND login as root in the browser too? This would be quite critical in terms of security.

    SAP doesn’t provide this info in their notes or installation guides. Has anyone experience in this environment and can answer our question? Thank you very much!

     

    BR, Richard

    My SAPINST does not even complete the initial steps. It just stops. Following are the only messages, after which the command prompt is returned. Any idea? Am i missing something during starup?

    No luck. Also did not want to waste more time by reporting to OSS. I went ahead with the legacy GUI mode of SAPINST with the following command:

    ./sapinst SAPINST_SLP_MODE=false

    Hi Anupom,
