Note: SAPSID for SAP S/4HANA Application Server should be different as compare to DBSID (HID) that we used for SAP HANA Database in Part 4 (Figure 4.3) of this Blog. Remember if we will install any other Server in the same Data base, each server should have unique SAPSID, In the next part of this blog we will install S/4HANA Frontend Server so we will have to use a unique SAPSID (HIF) for that one.

Note: I am going to install Application in the same operating system where I have SAP HANA Database so do not need to add the host entry, but if you are installing Application in separate server than you have to add Host Name and IP Address in the hosts /etc/hosts file of application server. Remember for installing Application in the separate system you have create another Virtual Machine by following Part 1 of this blog and have to install the SUSE Linux operating system by following steps in Part 2 of this blog.

Faisal, excellent blog post. I am getting an error on Step 28 that I am trying to upload the wrong LABEL.ASC file. IMDB_CLIENT20_002_64-80002082.SAR is no longer available so I tried to use IMDB_CLIENT20_003_119-80002082.SAR and IMDB_CLIENT20_002_71-80002082.SAR both versions result in this error.
Hi Michelle Eubanks,
Try with SAP HANA Client 1.00, you can download it from the below path.
INSTALLATIONS & UPGRADES => By Alphabetical Index (A-Z) => S => SAP S/4HANA => SAP S/4HANA 1610 => IDES VERSION => 51051522.
Thanks and Best Regards,
I am working on the project their implementation of SAP Fiori with SAP ECC 6.0 EHP7.
I going to connect SAP Fiori to SAP ECC 6.0 EHP7.
So my front server is SAP Netweaver 740 as SAP Fiori Server and Back End Server is SAP ECC 6.0. These are two separate systems.
Could you please tell me how to configure SAP Fiori on SAP NetWeaver 740?
Do you have any implementation and configure link for SAP Fiori?
Please guide me for SAP Fiori.
After complete the process without erros, I start to configure some company Code, purchagin Group, Purcharing Organization, etc... but I'm getting lot of errors with the message "DBSQL_TABLE_UNKNOWN" ..
When I go to check the database consistency I found that there are lot of Objects missing in the database (see the image ) in all the client 000, 400 o new clients that I created. So It's imposible to use the system.
Do you know why it happens? This is an screen of dbacockpit TX on client 000 it's the same on cliente 400.
Note 2565383 - DBSQL_TABLE_UNKNOWN dumps occur on DDL SQL Views after installation or upgrade
ii) Tcd SE38/SA38 to run RUTDDLSACT to create DDL SQL Views in background.
Specify view names (eg. From '/' to 'ZZZZ..').
Great blog. Thank you Faisal. Looks like there are a lot of post processing steps and notes need to be applied to make IDES client 400 usable. Could you please share these steps too? Thanks!
Post installation: Run RUTDDLSACT in bgd to resolve FB60, FB70, etc DDL error
Note 2565383 – DBSQL_TABLE_UNKNOWN dumps occur on DDL SQL Views after installation or upgrade
i) Check DB02 -> Diagnostics -> Missing Tables and Indexes -> Objects missing in the database -> Views
Refresh screen. Views with inconsistency displayed.
ii) Run SE38/SA38 to run RUTDDLSACT to create DDL SQL Views in background.
Specify view names (eg. From ‘/’ to ‘ZZZZ..’).
Post installation: Deactivate Vertex (for US company code VAT software).
IDES does not contain VERTEX. So for US company codes, IDES raises error
message no. FS864 ‘Communication error with the external tax system (VERTEX)’.
To avoid this you have to deactivate the communication setting.
IMG: Financial Accounting (New)
> Financial Accounting Global Settings (New)
> Tax on Sales/Purchases
> Basic Settings
> External Tax Calculation
> Activate External Tax Calculation
Remove any character in ‘Ext’ field i.e. ‘V’ in above screen.
Alternatively, you can change or remove Schema at t-cd OBBG altogether.
Post installation: Deactivate FSCM-CR Credit Management
When VA01 Sales Order or VL01N Outbound Delivery,
Message no. UKM_PI008 ‘Error when calling Credit Management: Technical Error’
