SAP agent - Monitoring non-Unicode environment

Technical Blog Post


Abstract

SAP agent - Monitoring non-Unicode environment

Body

What to do if you still have SAP non-Unicode environment which you want to monitor?

Why is this a problem?

ITCAM monitoring agent for SAP V7.1.1 does not support non-Unicode SAP environment. The SAP basis 7.0 and above releases do not support non-Unicode, therefore SAP monitoring agent does not contain non-Unicode ABAP transports. For example, 7.1.1 install image contains Unicode transports (K711_00098U.ITM & R711_00098U.ITM), but there are no agent transports for the Non-Unicode. 

Is there a solution?

To monitor non-Unicode SAP systems, you can use the older version 7.1.0 of SAP monitoring agent which includes non-Unicode transports.

The last SAP agent version which supported non-Unicode environment was V7.1.0 FP0002.
