These steps are only needed if you don't have a local SLD installed. That means if you have chosen "No SLD Destination" above. You can check if you have one installed if you go to "http://chrisSAP:50000/sld" and log in as administrator. Two errors will occur if you don't have a local SLD installed. It shows: "You do not have permission to view the System Landscape Directory. Minimum required: UME role with permission com.sap.lcr.LcrUser and J2EE role LcrUser. See the SLD Post-Installation Guide for details." and "SLD not configured; configure the SLD in Administration first". The "Administration" link in the menu and all links in the body page below the menu are grayed out.

  1. Go to "http://chrisSAP:50000" --> "SAP Netweaver Administration" --> "deploy and change". Select "NWA_01_This wizard will execute configuration for local SLD" and click "run".
  2. A screen pops up at step 11/13 where I entered following parameters:
    SLD Host: "chrisSAP"
    SLD Port: "50000"
    SLD Administration User: "Administrator"
    Password: "myMasterPassword"
    Java System ID: "J2E" (keep this pre-filled value)
    SLD Gateway Service: "sapgw00".
    Here "sapgw" was pre-filled as SLD gateway Service. You need to look up the correct name on the back end server "mybackend": start sapGUI on remote server, enter transaction RZ70 and check the service field for SLD bridge.
    After it says it finished successfully (it always will even if the port or gateway given is wrong!), I opened "http://chrisSAP:50000/sld". The error "SLD not configured" is away, but it still says that I need the permissions.
  3. I run "NWA_03_Creating a connection to the SLD and Setting required authorizations for SLD (CIM client settings)". On the first screen I left the default values. I entered on the second screen "Connection data for administrative SLD":
    SLD Host: "chrisSAP"
    SLD Port: "50000"
    SLD Administration User: "Administrator"
    Password: "myMasterPassword"
    It reads it finished successfully, but when checking the web page it still reads that I need the permissions.
  4. So I followed the "Post-Installation Guide - SLD of SAP NetWeaver 7.0" on "https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/nw-sld" in the next steps. There are a lot of more steps described that I did not list here, but they are not needed.
  5. Change Java heap size: start SAP J2EE Engine Config Tool and go to node "cluster-data" --> "Instance_ID38774". In the tab "Servers General" I found that "Max heap size" was already set to "512", which is correct.
  6. Creating roles:
    Go to "http://chrisSAP:50000/" --> "User Administration".
    Enter Search criteria "Role", "UME Database". click "Go". Then click "Create Role".
    Under "General Information" --> "Unique Name" enter role. Then select tab "Assigned Action". Enter role next to "Go" in left table "Available Actions" and the corresponding UME Action should be found. Select it, then click "add". Then click "Save".

    Role

    UME Action

    LcrUser

    sap.com_com.sap.lcr.LcrUser

    LcrSupport

    sap.com_com.sap.lcr.LcrSupport

    LcrInstanceWriterLD

    sap.com_com.sap.lcr.LcrInstanceWriterLD

    DataSupplierLD

    empty (assign no action)

    LcrInstanceWriterNR

    sap.com_com.sap.lcr.LcrInstanceWriterNR

    LcrInstanceWriterAll

    sap.com_com.sap.lcr.LcrInstanceWriterAll

    LcrAdministrator

    sap.com_com.sap.lcr.LcrAdministrator

  7. Assigning roles to Administrators:
    Enter Search criteria "Role", "UME Database". click "Go". Click on "Administrators", then "modify". Then select tab "Assigned Roles". select "UME Database" in "Search Criteria" in left table "Available Roles" and type in "Lcr*" next to it, then click "Go" and all newly created roles be found. Click "Select All", then click "add". Then click "Save".
  8. Test configuration:
    Go to "http://chrisSAP:50000/sld". Log off and on. No link should be grayed out anymore and no error message should appear. There should be an entry in the table now showing all informations about your system. If the table is empty, you have to follow additional steps:
  9. Import the SAP Master Component information (initial data import):
    Go to "http://chrisSAP:50000/sld" --> "administration" --> "import" and enter "Selected File" = "F:\usr\sap\J2E\SYS\global\sld\model\CR_Content.zip". Click on "Import". Wait until the progress bar finishes.
  10. Create user groups with following roles:

    Group

    Role

    SAP_SLD_GUEST

    LcrUser

    SAP_SLD_SUPPORT

    LcrSupport

    SAP_SLD_CONFIGURATOR

    LcrInstanceWriterLD

    SAP_SLD_DATA_SUPPLIER

    DataSupplierLD

    SAP_SLD_DEVELOPER

    LcrInstanceWriterNR

    SAP_SLD_CONFIGURATOR

    LcrInstanceWriterNR

    SAP_SLD_ORGANIZER

    LcrInstanceWriterAll

    SAP_SLD_ADMINISTRATOR

    LcrAdministrator

  11. In Visual Administrator, go to "server " --> "services" --> "SLD Data Supplier". Click on button on top: "assign application roles to user groups".
  12. Configuring the SLD Bridge: Go to "http://chrisSAP:50000/sld" --> "Administration" --> "profile" --> "data supplier". Enter:
    Gateway Host: "mybackend"
    Gateway Service: "sapgw00"
    Service "sapgw00" is the gateway which I have already set up on the back end system. If you don't have one, you need to do the next step: Install a standalone gateway.
  13. Install a standalone gateway (SLD Bridge):
    1. You must fetch it from the presentation-CD. Go to sap marketplace: "https://websmp106.sap-ag.de/swdc" --> "downloads" --> "SAP Installationen & Upgrades" --> "Entry by Application Group" --> "SAP NetWeaver" --> "SAP NETWEAVER" --> "SAP NETWEAVER 7.0" --> "Installation & Upgrade" --> "Windows Server" --> "SAP DB".
    2. Choose "BS2005 SR3 Installation Master Windows Server on IA32 32bit" under "Download Objekte" and add to download basket. Then start SAP download manager for downloading (around 70 MB). It is saved in "E:\Downloads\SAPDownloadBasket" as file "51033511_11.ZIP".
    3. I unzipped it to "E:\Downloads\BS_2005_SR3_SAP_Installation_Master" and started "IM_WINDOWS_I386\sapinst.exe"
    4. Choose "Sap NetWeaver 7.0 Support release 3" --> "Standalone Engines" --> "Gateway" --> "Gateway installation". Follow instructions.
  14. Check SLD connection:
    Go to "http://chrisSAP:50000/irj/portal" --> "Content Administration" --> "Web Dynpro" --> "Check SLD Connection".
    It should tell you that the connection was successful.
    Open Visual Administrator, go to "server" --> "services" --> "SLD Data Supplier". Set the collection to 1 minute waiting time and restart. There should be a success message.
