SAP on IBM i – SL Toolset 1.0 SPS 26 has been released with new features for IBM i
On May 27th, 2019 SL Toolset 1.0 SPS 26 has been released for customers. You can find an overview over all enhancements at this link: News with Software Logistics Toolset 1.0 SPS 26. For SAP on IBM i, two features were added that you might find interesting:
- The SAP system copy on IBM i now supports to use an existing SAP database library when creating a new SAP system. This option may be helpful when you want to use a database copy that has been created through the FlashCopy feature.
- In addition, the SAP Uninstall now supports the option to leave the SAP database library on the system when the entire SAP system is deleted. This option may be helpful for some test scenarios in conjunction with the new system copy option.
To learn more about these new features, read the documentation in the SAP system copy guide (e.g. “System Copy of SAP Systems Based on the Application Server ABAP of SAP NetWeaver 7.1 to 7.5 on IBM i : IBM Db2 for i”) and in the SAP installation guide (e.g. “Installation of SAP Systems Based on the Application Server ABAP of SAP NetWeaver 7.1 to 7.5 on IBM i : IBM Db2 for i”), or visit us at the SAP on IBM i Summit on June 25th and 26th, 2019 in Ehningen (Germany).
