SQL Server 2005 DVD has been archived!

(new 19/07/2016)

The SQL Server 2005 DVD from SAP Launchpad has been archived. If you (1) have a system already running on SQL Server 2005, (2) have acquired SQL Server from SAP and (3) need to perform a system copy, open a support incident to XX-SER-SWFL-SHIP asking for SQL Server 2005 installation media.

New General Download Restrictions for all SQL Server Releases

As of April 2015, downloading the SQL Server installation media for NetWeaver based systems from the SAP Service Market Place is restricted to SAP customers who have licensed Microsoft SQL Server through SAP. SAP customers who have acquired their SQL Server license from Microsoft or a re-seller, needs to obtain the installation media from Microsoft or the re-seller.

SQL Server 2014/2016 Download Restrictions

As of SQL Server 2014, Microsoft has included new Use Terms in the licenses sold under the reselling agreement with SAP. As a re-seller, we must notify customers of the new Use Terms and we must receive acknowledgement of the customers' receipt of the terms. Therefore, all customers who have purchased their SQL Server license from SAP must contact their SAP Account Executive (or SAP Partner/Re-seller) in order to obtain a copy of the new use terms via an Amendment and sign their receipt of the Amendment. If you have not signed the agreement you will not be able to see the SQL Server 2014/2016 in the download area of SAP Service Marketplace!

Regarding the new Use Terms, see SAP Note 2139358 for more details on the change. Once you have returned the signed Amendment, SAP will enable download of SQL Server 2014/2016 and subsequent editions for your installations. Neither SAP Product Support nor Development Support will be able to give you access to the download media! For more details, contact SAP contract Department - see SAP Note 1660069.

SQL Server 2014/2016- SQL4SAP media

Until you sign the new agreement (if you have acquired SQL Server from SAP) or if you acquired it from Microsoft or a re-seller, you'll be able to download the installation media that contains only the SQL4SAP Framework. More information in SAP Notes 1970448 and 2313067.
