    Thank you so much Andreas! I would never have found this document without your post.

    Not only this doc is the best available, it is the ONLY one which gives a detailed installation step-by-step guide for installing SAP + DB2 + SA MP from A to Z.

    "
    The primary focus for SAP Central Services and DB2 HADR has been the Tivoli SA MP
    implementations, as the necessary implementation steps were not found to be documented in any
    single source. Our steering committee (of large customer account teams) specifically requested an
    implementation “cookbook” for SA MP clustered components.
    "

    I've spent weeks browsing through every official IBM and SAP installation guides, nothing comes even close to this one (they were only pieces of the puzzle). Every little detail for a full HA clustered solution is in here, check lists, commands, pitfalls, testing, the works. This guide should be in front pages everywhere, think of it as a master installation and testing guide for the solution as a whole, too bad it is so hard to find.

    Once again, the correct link:
    http://www-03.ibm.com/support/techdocs/atsmastr.nsf/WebIndex/WP102036

    And I've also attached it just in case. =)

    Also thank you for writing it. ;-)

    Btw, this guide covers maintenance as well (upgrades procedure and commands for troubleshooting) as well.

    This is the best SAP - IT SA MP HA document I have ever come across. I wish I had seen this a month back. Thank you Elke.
