How to install ABAP 1909 on Mac M1 (Apple Silicon)

How to run ABAP 1909 on MacOs with M1? For me, the best idea was to use UTM. I also tried before with docker without success – in the end, there was always an error.

1. Install UTM

2. Download Ubuntu Server x64 bit version

3. Create a virtual machine on UTM (220 GB storage, 6-7 CPU’s, additional flags)

4. Install Ubuntu server on UTM

5. Install docker

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install \
    ca-certificates \
    curl \
    gnupg \

curl -fsSL | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg

echo \
  "deb [arch=$(dpkg --print-architecture) signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg] \
  $(lsb_release -cs) stable" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli

6. Install ABAP 1909. A good article also here

docker run --stop-timeout 3600 -i --name a4h -h vhcala4hci -p 3200:3200 -p 3300:3300 -p 8443:8443 -p 30213:30213 -p 30215:30215 -p 50000:50000 -p 50001:50001 -p 50013:50013 -p 50014:50014 store/saplabs/abaptrial:1909 -skip-limits-check -agree-to-sap-license

In the beginning, it is always running slow. The best idea is to use sgen and regenerate all transactions, then it should be definitely better and pretty usable 🙂
