  • Hi Faisal,

    Great post. Thank you.

    1. I have successfully installed Frontend server. I have successfully logged in with ddic at client 001. Yet I am unable to access from Fiori URL. What is the Frontend server for?

    https: //<host>.<domain>:<port>/sap/bc/ui5_ui5/ui2/ushell/shells/abap/Fiorilaunchpad.html

    2. Also when I started FB60 in the SAP Gui (Mac), I got a short dump error.

    “This is table “FINVSV_T001A”, or another table which the statement wants to

    access. The database has returned SQL code””SQL code; 259″ with the error text

    “SQL message: invalid table name:  Could not find table/view FINSV_T001A in

    schema SAPABAP1: line 1 col 51 (at pos 50)”.

    guess IDES 1610 is not ready for this FIori ides

  • Dear Faisal Altaf,

    You have installed SAP Front End Server on same machine (VM) or different VM? as far as what i have understood from your blog is that you have installed FES on same database of Back End Server?? what sort of FES deployment is that?? can you please explain??

    And can you please provide any document containing configuration of FES  with back End for Fiori?

     

    Thanks & Regards,

    Faheem Ahmed Shaikh.

    • Hi,

      It’s not VM, but I have installed FES on the same physical server with Back End Server and Database Server. We can identify those 3 by using System ID. Instance will also be counted up.

      But from what I have tried, FES is very very heavy. My machine is 96 GB RAM, Database Server and Back End Server works quickly. But when I start Front End Server, performance gets worse suddenly. So I recommend to separate FES if possible.

      I also couldn’t connect Fiori, and posted SAP an incident. He replies with below link for Post Installation. I appreciate if someone create a blog with screen copies like this. Coz I am not Basis guy.
