This blog will show you how to install miniSAP. Let?s me start by saying that in this blog post I will install miniSAP on Windows XP service pack 3 that installed on virtual machine. The host operating system is Mac OS X 10.6. And the virtual machine software is VMWare fusion 2.0.4
How to get miniSAP
I got miniSAP installation CD from the book ?ABAP Objects? which I purchased from Amazon.com. It is a very good book which suit very well for new ABAPer like me
- Operating System: Windows XP Professional (Service Pack 2) or Windows Server 2003
- Hostname must not exceed 13 characters
- NTFS-File system
- Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher or Firefox 1.0 or higher
- At least 1 GB RAM
- Intel Pentium III/1.1 GHz or higher (or compatible)
- 22 GB hard disk space temporary during installation ? 10 GB permanent
- Make sure that no other SAP system is installed on your computer
- The SAP system requires serveral ports for communication services. Therefore the file %WINDIR%system32driversetcservices must not include an entry for the ports 3200, 3600 and 8000. A possible entry can be excluded by using the hash symbol (#).
- If no DHCP server is available on your network (which dynamically determines the IP address) or your computer is not connected to any network, you need to install the virtual interface adapter MS Loopback Adapter.
The installation could be easy. Just pop-in your installation disc. The browser will appear. Goto the installation menu in the browser. Then click install!
Click Next -> Finish. That?s all! The miniSAP is installed on your machine. Once you click finish the MS-Dos and SAP Management console will appear. I will close them all for now since we still have to install SAP Logon in order to login and use our newly install miniSAP system.
Install SAP Logon
Configuring SAP Logon
Click finish, go back to SAP Logon, and Logon!
Logging into miniSAP
Well DONE 🙂
