I am fairly new to this fascinating world of SAP BASIS and recently got hit by an issue which I faced during an ERP 2005 SR2 (ECC 6.0) ABAP+JAVA installation.
My Installation Particulars:
1. OS: Windows Server 2003 R2 (32-bit)
2. DB: Oracle 10.2.0.2
3. RAM: 2 GB
4. Installation type: LOCAL and CENTRAL SYSTEM INSTALLATION.
I have tried the installation thrice and each time the IMPORT ABAP step (phase 18) comes, 3 parallel IMPORT JOBS runs and after few of them completes the system restarts or crashes abruptly. So as a matter of fact, the R3LOAD which were running had to stop without getting completed, so whenever I start from old installation, the INSTALLATION MASTER throws error and I had to start a new installation. then again, during this phase the system/server/computer crashes.
The minimum RAM requirement for this ERP installation is 3 GB, so probably 2 GB is not being able to cope up the pressure of the R3LOAD jobs...well, i am not sure of that!
During the parameter specification, at the DATABASE EXPORT screen I have specified 3 parallel jobs. Well, the question which I have are as follows:
1. Will I reduce the number of PARALLEL JOBS to 1 or 2, without going with the default value of 3, in order to avoid these crashes?
2. Can I still install the SAP with 2 GB RAM?
Please do help...
Thanks everyone for your valuable replies.
Well, as far as the OS is concerned, this version (ERP 2005 SR2), is compatible on 32-bit OS also. I am confirmed because I have done this installation on different machines also, prior to this installation, where my OS was 32 bit, but RAM was 4 GB. That is why, I am presuming this to be a hardware issue.
By CRASH, I mean during that step the computer shuts down abruptly by itself.
Well, I am starting the installation again, by specifying only 1 parallel job. Let's see if it works or not! If it doesn't then I will have to increase the RAM surely.
Anyways, if you have anymore informations to share regarding this issue please feel free. I will soon post the UPDATE on this thread.
Thanks and Happy New Year to all of you.
Due to some internal pressure of the company deadlines, i had to install the ECC on 4 GB and the previous experiment of installing it in 2 GB is still not complete. the SAP got installed in 4 GB and 32-bit Windows without any fuss.
But here I am facing two new issues...
1) I am not being able to log in to the 000 client with DDIC user and Master Password. All the other clients that is in 001 I can login with the same combination but not not in 000. Why?
Well, I have used the command> select BNAME from SAPSR3.USR02 where MANDT='000'; anf found that DDIC user is present at the 000 client but it's not able to login.
2) What are the problems that I will face if I change the password of the <SAP SID>adm user?
Please do reply?
For the first issue, have you tried logging in with SAP* user. Provide the master pwd for this user while logging in.
Ensure the profile parameter to activate sap* user is enabled.
If the above doesnt work, you can try deleting the sap* user from usr02 table. You should be able to login with sap* and pwd: pass after the previous step.
Once you are able to login with SAP* user to the SAPGUI, you can reset the pwd of DDIC to ensure succusful login.
For the 2nd issue, AFAIK, I do not see any repercussions in changing the password.
