i am already new and need information about the min. hardware requirements for a SAP ERP 2k5 System using ECC 6.0 with IDES 7.10.
I read the Master Guides about ERP, but i am not even more clever than before.
The OS is MS Windows 2k3 Server EE.
The last information i had from another one to this configuration is:
1 dual-core cpu (? Ghz)
4-6 GB RAM
300 GB HDD
Does it fit? Can anyone help me out?
Thanks in advance.

Give us a clue as to the number of users, amount of data etc etc.
However as rough and ready guide
Single 2.0ghz DC cpu will be fine.
6GB Ram will be fine
mirror pair for OS and exes (72GB)
mirror pair for logs (72GB)
raid 5 set for data (3 x 72GB)
By doubling the number of disk in the raid 5 set you will increase performance (I/O) by 50% as a rule of thumb.
Go for 64bit version of windows, if you use 32bit make sure you set /3GB switch.
SAP have stop developing on 32bit.
If it's an IDES system you want to set up, HDD space may be the bottleneck. It's sufficient for installation, but you may run out of disk space since note <a href="https://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/1013391">1013391</a> states
Hardware Requirement MS-SQL ORACLE MaxDB DB2 Win/Unix AS/400 DB size (GB): 160 220 220 160 280
Since IDES is for education and training purposes only the rest should be sufficient.
I'm running an ERP 6.0 IDES system (32 bit) on a single core, 3.2 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 250 GB System and 500 GB SAP/DB HDD with pretty good response time.
Points always appreciated
you're right - you can't have enough RAM...but running on 32 Bit (in my case) more than 4 GB doesn't make sense...
And you're right again, there're rarely more than 2-3 users active at a time, as it's just some 'playground'...
Marcel didn't specify how he wants to use his system...
>>> more than 4 GB doesn't make sense...
it depends on your operating system.
Windows XP will only see 3 GB,
W2K3 will be able to use up to 4 GB, but the
W2K3 Enterprise Edition can definitely benefit from more than 4 GB memory (up to 16 GB. it can even use more than 16 GB if /3GB is not set (not recommended).
do I am confusing some thing?
1) You are talking about IDES 7.10. I think there is only IDES 4.7 even for SAP ERP ECC 6.0.
2) My second question is: could someone tell me please where I can find the Installation Guide for IDES (MySAP ERP 2005) which we call now SAP ERP IDES 4.7.
I used the guide line for MySAP ERP ECC 6.0 to installation IDES but now I realy want to do it better now
Thanks for yiur help.
1) You are talking about IDES 7.10. I think there is
only IDES 4.7 even for SAP ERP ECC 6.0.
IDES is "Internation Demo and Education System"
4.7 is the release, so IDES 4.7 is an R/3 Enterprise based IDES system.
SAP ERP ECC 6.0 doesn´t exist, the new name is
SAP ERP 6.0 (http://service.sap.com/erp)
2) My second question is: could someone tell me
please where I can find the Installation Guide for
IDES (MySAP ERP 2005) which we call now SAP ERP IDES
Nope, not ERP IDES 4.7.
You are searching for an installation for ERP 6.0 IDES. You can use the normal installation guide except for the filesystem sizes, you need more space.
