Question & Answer


Question

How do I install the SAP Server components for IBM InfoSphere Pack for SAP BW version 4.3.3.0 or 4.3.3.1?

Answer

In addition to installing the client and server components of the SAP Pack on the Information Server tiers, you also need to install the following components on your SAP system to use the Pack.

Authorization roles that can be assigned to users:
Z-DS-ADM-ALL
Z-DS-DESIGN-ALL
Z-DS-DESIGN-BWEXTRACT
Z-DS-DESIGN-BWLOAD
Z-DS-DESIGN-BWLOAD7X
Z-DS-RUNTIME-ALL
Z-DS-RUNTIME-BWEXTRACT
Z-DS-RUNTIME-BWLOAD
Z-DS-RUNTIME-BWLOAD7X
For more information about the provided authorization roles, see technote 1992251
Note: Users can choose to manually create the authorization roles in SAP instead of importing the transports provided.

Step 1: Uploading the transport request files 

To import the transport request files, you must first copy them to a directory on the SAP system. 

Procedure
Log on to the SAP system as a system administrator.
Copy the transport files provided on the installation medium to the /usr/sap/trans/cofiles and /usr/sap/trans/data folders respectively on the SAP system. The original location and ID of the transport files depends on the SAP version - see Table above.

Step 2: Importing the transport request files 

The SAP administrator can import the transport request files by using one of the following methods: 

Option 1. Importing the transport request files by using the Transport Management System 

Procedure 
Log on to the SAP system using the SAP GUI as the SAP administrator.
Enter the transaction STMS.
Click Overview > Imports.
Double-click the current SID in the Queue column.
Click Extras > Other Requests > Add.
Select the transport request ID for your SAP system configuration (see the table below) and click Continue.
Select the transport request in the import queue and click Request > Import.
Enter the client number.
Check the option "Ignore component version" on the Options tab, if available, and click Continue.
Verify that the authorization roles were imported successfully by using any appropriate transactions such as SU01.

Option 2: Importing the transport request files at the operating system level 

Procedure 
Log on to the SAP system as a system administrator.
Add the appropriate requests to the import buffer by running the following command:
tp addtobuffer <transport request> <SID> 
For example:
tp addtobuffer DIBK900274 DD1
Import the transport requests by running the following command:
tp import <transport request> <SID> client=<NNN>
where <NNN> is the client number. For example:
tp import DIBK900274 DD1 client=800
Verify that the function module and authorization roles were imported successfully by using appropriate transactions such as SU01.
