1 Installation Guide (Windows) Parameter Instance Number of the SAP System Description Technical identifier that is required for every instance of an SAP system. The instance number must be unique on the host. October 2011 15 . For example. If you want to use virtual host names for the installation.MDM 7. make sure that the master password meets the requirements of your operating system. these instances must be assigned different numbers. This may be useful for moving SAP servers or complete server landscapes to other new hardware within a short time frame. For more information about the allowed host name length and characters. SAPService<SAPSID>) If you did not create the operating system users manually before the installation. Virtual Host Name You can use one or more virtual TCP/IP host names for SAP servers within an SAP server landscape in order to conceal their physical network identities from each other. if more than one SAP instance is running on the same host. you are prompted to confirm the password for this user. SAPinst creates them with the default master password. For more information about the use of virtual TCP/IP host names. The host name must not exceed 12 characters. see SAP Note 611361. you cannot select the installation drive because the sapmnt share already exists. you have to specify the virtual host name before you start SAPinst. If you install an additional SAP system. see SAP Note 962955. the directory of the MDS is called MDS<Instance_Number>. That is. Master Password Common password for all users that are created during the installation: Operating system users (for example <sapsid>adm. without having to carry out a reinstallation or complicated reconfiguration. In this case. SAPinst uses the installation drive that the sapmnt share points to. consisting of a two-digit number from 00 to 97. If a user already exists. Destination Drive Base directory for the SAP system. The instance number is used to specify the names of the SAP system instance directories that SAP automatically creates during the installation. Do not use 89 for the instance number because it is used by Windows Terminal Server.

1 Installation Guide (Windows) Parameter User <sapsid>adm Description User <sapsid>adm is the system administrator user and is a member of the local Administrators group. unless the password of these users is the same as the master password. We recommend that you use ports higher than 49151. MDLS) makes the server accessible through the network. Port Number of the MDM server The TCP/IP port number of the respective MDM server (MDS. SAPinst automatically creates it. MDSS. Make sure that you have the required user authorization for these accounts before you start the installation.MDM 7. User SAPService<SAPSID> Password of Operating System Users This user is the Windows account to run the SAP system. The ports between 0 and 1023 might be used by the operating system and the application may not function correctly. SAPinst sets the Master Password by default. User sapadm User sapadm is used for central monitoring services. SAPinst creates it automatically during the installation. Make sure that the user ID and group ID of this operating system user are unique and the same on each MDM server instance host. this parameter is configurable during the MDM installation. MDIS. It is not a member of the local Administrators group and direct login to this user is not possible. but you can overwrite it either by choosing the parameter mode Custom or by changing it on the parameter summary screen.

Single domain In this model.1 Installation Guide (Windows) 3. the user accounts must form the root domain and the SAP domain must be a child domain of the root domain. Procedure 1. Check that the file system is NTFS. NTFS supports full Windows security and long file names. You must use NTFS for an SAP system installation. 2. 3. the SAP domain and user domain must be incorporated into a domain tree.3.3 Preparation Steps This chapter explains the following Windows-specific preparation steps that you need to perform before starting SAPinst: Checking the File System Checking the Domain Structure (Windows domain installation only) Reducing the Size of the File Cache Checking Required User Authorizations Performing a Domain Installation Without Being a Domain Administrator (Windows domain installation only) 3.3. you can implement either of the following domain models for the SAP system: Extra domain In this model. the SAP system is embedded in its own domain. 3. Select the relevant disk.2 Checking the Domain Structure You do not need this step for a local installation. Do not install the SAP directories on a FAT partition. Choose Properties General. In Windows. In this tree. In Windows.

This section informs you about the authorization required for a domain and a local installation. Domain Installation For a domain installation. the account used to run the installation needs to be a member of the local Administrators and the domain Admins group needs to be a member of the relevant domain. see the Windows OS documentation.3. Procedure For a domain installation. For more information. We recommend this for all SAP system setups.1 Installation Guide (Windows) Prerequisites You are performing a domain installation. You are familiar with checking Windows domain structures.4 Checking Required User Authorizations The authorization required depends on whether you intend to perform a domain or local installation. we recommend that you check that all SAP system and database hosts are members of a single Windows domain. Running an SAP instance or the database on the host where the domain controller is installed is therefore not supported. All hosts in the system must belong to the same domain. In a domain installation. the installation aborts. If you attempt the installation with an account that does not have the required authorization. the SAP system user information is stored centrally on the domain controller and is accessible to all hosts in the system. 3. 18 October 2011 . You cannot create local users and groups on the host that is used as a domain controller.MDM 7. Do not use the user <sapsid>adm for the installation of the SAP system. You might have to ask the system administrator to grant the necessary authorization before you start the installation.

SAP does not support an SAP system installation on a domain controller. you need to: 1. this can lead to authorization problems for the operating system users <sapsid>adm and SAPService<SAPSID>. the domain administrator has to prepare the system appropriately for you. . If required. Local Installation For a local installation. If you install a distributed system as a local installation. In this case. .You use the same master password on all hosts. 3. Create the new global group SAP_<SAPSID>_GlobalAdmin. The password for the <sapsid>adm and SAPService<SAPSID> user can differ.3.You use the same password for the <sapsid>adm or the SAPService<SAPSID> user on all hosts. 2.All hosts belong to the same Windows work group. obtain these rights by asking the system administrator to enter the account as a member of the domain Admins group. 3. the account used for the installation needs to be a member of the local Administrators group of the machine involved. If required. we do not support a local installation for a distributed system. For a domain installation. SAP strongly recommends that you perform a domain installation to avoid authorization problems.1 Installation Guide (Windows) If the SAP system is to be distributed across more than one machine. the domain administrator has to prepare the system for you. Add the users <sapsid>adm and SAPService<SAPSID> to the newly created group SAP_<SAPSID>_GlobalAdmin. If for any reason the account used for the installation is not a member of the domain Admins group. 2. obtain these rights by asking the system administrator to enter the account as a member of the local Administrators group. you can perform the installation with a domain user who is a member of the local Administrators group. If for any reason. all Windows account information is stored locally on one host and is not visible to any other hosts in the system. We recommend that you install a distributed system as a domain installation. you can perform the installation with a domain user who is a member of the local Administrators group. In a local installation. Therefore. October 2011 19 . see section Performing a Domain Installation without being a Domain Administrator below. 2. However. the account used for the installation is not a member of the domain Admins group. If you still want to perform a local installation for a distributed system. The domain administrator can perform the following steps manually or by using SAPinst: 1. Check that the account used for the installation is a member of the domain Admins group. Create the two new SAP system users <sapsid>adm and SAPService<SAPSID>. For more information. you need to: 1. make sure that: . For performance and security reasons.5 Performing a Domain Installation Without Being a Domain Administrator You normally perform a domain installation of the SAP system with a user who is a member of the domain Admins group.MDM 7.

Originals change at a less frequent rate than Main data. If you wish to explicitly use a setting different than "model". you may wish to specify other locations on the database host machine. If you want to override the default and enable this feature at repository creation. So SQL Server creates a new database schema with the method that the "model" database uses. MDM creates tablespaces in the default directory of SQL Server. and Variants. it does not set the recovery method. Main and Originals are placed in one partition. with Thumbnails and Variants being placed in the other. While this is acceptable in most cases. not just logical drives). Furthermore. Choosing two or four partitions gives you the option of performing SQL Server-based backups on a different schedule for the various partitions. enter the following in the top section of mds. a dialog box appears asking for Data path and Log path.

If the MDS and the DBMS are on the same machine. the default is that passwords expire in 180 days. Password expiration has a negative impact on MDS. in the step where you select the installation option. Make sure that you reboot the machine after a new installation of Oracle on a Windows platform so that the MDM service can inherit the Oracle path from the system. Oracle’s performance increases when separate spindles (hard disks) are used for the main data and indices. warning messages about password expiration interfere with MDS operations. see SAP Note 830576.Database Character Set: Choose a Unicode character set.

Choosing two or four partitions gives you the option of performing Oracle based backups on a different schedule for the various partitions. These two settings are controllable from the MDM Console. Background In Oracle. But you have the freedom to create tablespaces according to the needs of your particular installation as described below. Since Thumbnails and Variants can be recreated through MDM. Thumbnails. can be backed up less frequently in a four partition configuration. By using the logical concept of a tablespace. it limits the full control of location and other parameters in the creation and management of tablespaces that are possible in Oracle databases. Originals. Originals change at a less frequent rate than Main data. With four partitions.1 Installation Guide (Windows) Allow Flexible Tablespaces You can detach from the methods built into MDM for the creation of Oracle database storage. and in turn the tablespace names are derived from the schema names. Tables (or schemas) are then assigned to logical storage entities called tablespaces. MDM uses a single directory location on an individual DBMS for all data tablespaces and another single directory for index tablespaces.MDM 7. data elements are stored in tables. and Variants. Collections of tables are grouped together into schemas. MDM creates two tablespaces for each schema. In a two partition arrangement. each data collection type has a separate partition (schema and tablespaces). Oracle allows you to manage the actual files that are used for a tablespace independent of the schemas and tables. The names of the schemas are derived from the repository name. By default MDM applies the following data storage concept: MDM repositories use one. one for data and the other for indexes. For many use cases. so they. Whereas this arrangement is convenient for the majority of use cases. with Thumbnails and Variants being placed in the other. two or four schemas. you can utilize even more of the flexibility and power that the database provides. As an experienced database administrator. MDM data divides into four types of data collections: Main. Main and Originals are placed in one partition.
