    Hi Wajid ,

    thanks for sharing, very interesting!

    Especially for me as a non-basis person, it’s nice to see how such a system installation is done!

    Hi Wajid,

     

    the Maintenance Planner can be use for setup of new S/4 HANA 1809 system too. This simplifies the selection for the download and your are getting a current patch level of the kernel etc.  Unfortunately it misses the HANA DB Client SAR-File.

    “Extract all files in folder with full permission.”

    Putting all files on the application server, you do no longer need to extract any file (export etc.) on the application server installation does it for you.

     

    Best regards

    Peter
