Does solution manager 4.0  require SMD Agent?

we have  solman 4.0 abap+java with sp11.we are in the process of configuring sol mananager  diagnostics for sattlite systems.
for monitoring solution manager   java stack it self from solution manager  do we need to install  SMD AGENT   even thogh solution manger it self has SMD server ? still  solution manger need SMD AGENT ?

Hi,
SMD Agents are mandatory to run Diagnostics on sattelite systems.
Each Agent is connected to SMD Server and is able to run task or collect information from central request (SMD Server).
If you do not have them, you will not be able to run any tools in Diag.
SMD Server is one sub-component of Solution Manager 4.0.

Frederic

  • Does Solution Manager support Service Report for non-abap?

    Does Solution Manager support Service Report for non-abap?
    We can schedule and view reports for ABAP but for all the non-ABAP such as J2EE stack (PORTAL) we can not pull out a report.
    If the answer is yes please let me know where I can get the documentation of how to setup SLA for PORTAL or non-ABAP.
    I found a document on EWA non-abap but non for SLA.

    Hi
    actually i am in task of setting up ewa for portal.
    i had already done with abap components (ewa and sla)
    i stronly believe one of the pre-requiste to get sla is EWA.
    so i think if u can setup ewa for portal then you can get sla too.

  • Upgrade CRM 3.0 to CRM 5.0 -Is solution manager by SAP required?

    Hello CRM gurus,
    We are currently running on CRM version 3.0 and planning an upgrade to CRM 5.0.
    Is solution manager absolutely required for this upgrade. I know that SAP heighly recommends it but is it absoutely required.
    Also, could you please give me few inputs if you did the upgrade with/without the solution manager?
    Thanks for your inputs,

  • Solution Manager's network requirements

    Hi Experts,
    we want to install solution manager. But it seems Solution manager should be connected to SAP.
    Is it possible to use SNC over Internet to connect our  Solution manager to SAP? What kind of connection is normally used?
    Thanks a lot.

    Hello Rongfeng,
    Yes you are right. Solution Manager requires a connection to SAP to work on functions lilke Service Desk and Maintenance Optimizer.
    These connections are made via RFC typically the RFC SAP-OSS and SAP-OSS-LIST-O01. Also the RFC SAPOSS and SAPNET_RFC is used.
    It is possible to have a SAPRouter setup to use SNC over internet and then use this SAPRouter with Solution Manager in the details of these RFC's so that the RFC's function.
    Following notes discuss the details on SNC and SAProuter :
    35010  -- Service connections: Composite note (overview)
    31515 --  Service connections
    30289 --  SAProuter documentation
    Hope that this information helps.

  • How does Solution Manager compare to BMC Patrol?

    Has anyone done a comparison of Solution Manager versus Patrol when it comes to monitoring OS system level parameters? We are in the process of deciding which tool to use on a new SAP AIX implementation. We like that Solution Manager comes with the SAP application so no extra costs. But we have used Patrol on other mid-range systems with much success. All thoughts and comments would be appreciated.

    Hello Denis,
    I am curently on the same situaton as yours few years ago. I gonna implement PATROL, but I just wonder if this valuable to centralise all the monitoring via Sap solution Manager or to customize all PATROL alerts in all SAP backends.
    regards

  • How does Solution Manager manage upgrade?

    Except get the upgrade  key from SM4.0, I do not see any other involvement of SM4.0 in the
    upgrade.
    However in a recent paper by Jon Reed , he says that you can use SM4.0 to manage your
    upgrade.
    Please share your opinions. Thanks!

    Solution Manager's module Implementation Tools can help to you conduct from a "Fuctional" point of view your entire Upgrade project, further more can help you to rollout if necessary the Upgrade.
    For Upgrade Projects the SAP Solution Manager supports both:
    - restarting an upgrade project
    - perform an upgrade project based on an implementation project
    The scope of support for these upgrade-relevant activities with the SAP Solution Manager is the same as for an implementation project, plus some upgrade-specific functions:
    a comparison tool which identifies release-specific changes or deletions, if you used SAP reference contents
    an upgrade report which gets the upgrade-relevant configuration settings which you must adjust in upgrade or delta customizing, automatically, based on a connection to the target release system
    Upgrade-relevant contents are also delivered with the SAP Solution Manager, as an upgrade roadmap and upgrade-specific business scenario and process contents. At the end of the upgrade project, changed or inserted business scenarios and processes and system information are put in a customer-specific repository (Solution Directory), where they are available for production processing.

  • Does a managed client computer require an OD user account?

    Currently, my site is set up so that users have local accounts on their own machines.
    If I want to be able to manage settings on their local machines, do I need to convert all the existing accounts to server based OD accounts?
    Ideally, I would like to keep them logging in locally, but be able to manage certain settings centrally, and then slowly migrate the local accounts to mobile accounts in the future...
    Is this possible to do, or do I need to have all my users in my OD before I can manage their computers?
    Thanks in advance

    Hi
    +"If I want to be able to manage settings on their local machines, do I need to convert all the existing accounts to server based OD accounts?"+
    No.
    +"Is this possible to do?"+
    Yes. You don't necessarily have to have an OD Master to achieve this either, although it's easier if it is. Make sure your server is an OD Master and join client workstations to the LDAP node. If you don't need to disable 'Automatic logins' on the client workstations then leave it as a 'transparent' login. Users logging won't be aware of any other login option that way. However if you want to present a login window you can either configure it locally to not show any Users or apply that option as a managed preference. It's one of the many MCX you can apply at Computer level that you can't apply at any other level.
    Bear in mind MCX at hardware level applies to all users - local or otherwise.
    +"do I need to have all my users in my OD before I can manage their computers?"+
    No. Although you will have to at some point if you want to achieve local to mobile accounts.

  • System Monitoring in Solution Manager 4.0

    Hi all,
    I want to set up system monitoring for landscape BW, ECC and SCM systems using Solution Manager 4.0 and am new to Sol Man.
    So could anyone please help me with the steps.
    Thanks in advance,
    Sandeep.

    Sandeep,
    Trust me, there is no one resource that you can refer to and complete this system monitoring project. I recently configured this a couple of days ago. I can tell you that I haven't completed it yet. I have only completed the configuring the 'System Monitoring' part of it. I am yet to define monitors so that, I can monitor what I want of the satellite systems. So far, it took me about 4 days. Let me point out the basic steps you need to follow. Beyond that, please refer to the links I paste below:
    Steps to configure 'System Monitoring' in Solution Manager:
    1. Follow the 'Solution Manager Preparation' found under SPRO --> Solution Manager --> Read Me.
    2. Make sure you have the latest ST-ICO and ST-SER installed in your Solution Manager (Note: 892412).
    3. Make sure the Solution Manager has the latest support packages applied.
    4. Prepare the 'Satellite Systems' as per note 455356:
         a. Create the role 'SAP_BC_CSMREG' (if it doesn't exist) with the following authorization objects
              --> S_CCM_RECV (with the objects and values mentioned in the above note)
              --> S_RFC (with the objects and values mentioned in the above note)
              --> S_RZL_ADM (with the objects and values mentioned in the above note)
              --> S_CUS_CMP (with the objects and values mentioned in the above note)
         b. Create a 'communication' user CSMREG (if it doesn't exist) and assign the profile S_CSMREG
    5. Create the user CSMREG in Solution Manager using RZ21 transaction
              -->RZ21 --> Technical Infrastructure --> Configure Central System --> Create CSMREG user (Provide the required password and confirm).
    6. An agent needs to be registered in all the satellite systems that collects the monitor statistics and pass on to the Solution Manager. Before registering the agent in the satellite system, a 'CSMCONF' file has to be generated in the Solution Manager and store it in a central location which, will be used by the CCMS agent while registration. This CSMCONF file holds the communication details for the agent to talk to the Solution Manager. To create CSMCONF file, proceed as follows:
              --> RZ21 --> Technical Infrastructure --> Configure Central System --> Create Start CSMCONF for Agents
              --> Store the file in a central location that can be accessed by the satellite system/s.
    7. In the satellite system, copy the file 'CSMCONF' to the working directory of SAPCCM4X (F:\usr\sap\PD1\SYS\DVEBMGS01\log\sapccm4x - for example. If the 'sapccm4x' folder does not exist, create one).
    8. Copy the downloaded 'SAPCCM4X.exe' file to the kernel directory on the satellite system.
    9. Execute "sapccm4x -R pf=<path of the instance profile>". This should ask for the 'CSMREG' password and the admin user password on the solution manager system. Please input the same and confirm other questions. Upon confirmation, the CCMS agent should be registered in the satellite system.
    10.Make sure you establish the trusted RFC connection on the Solution Manager to the satellite system you would want to monitor. This you can do from 'SMSY' transaction.
    11.After successfully creating the RFC connections, and assigning the system to a logical component, please go to transaction, 'SOLUTION_MANAGER'. You can see the monitored system in the System Overview.

  • Email and SMS Alerts - Solution Manager - PI and EP

    Hi All,
    I am trying to do the below scenario.....But somehow i am lost in the process.
    I have a three system PI landscape and a Solution Manager. I have included the DEV PI in solution manager for CCMS,the CCMS agents are online and it also reflects in RZ20.
    Now the requirement is SOLMAN should send email and sms alerts in below situations which occur in PI system.
    1.The ABAP or JAVA engine goes down.
    2.One of the filesystem crosses certain predefined limit.
    3.Any of the java server node stops working
    4.If any critical job gets cancelled in sm37
    I am looking at steps on how to define the alert categories, auto reaction methods, also the nodes where i have to assign these auto reaction methods.
    I have gone through CCMS documentations, played all sim files and gone through most of the pdf files but i am not able to establish proper steps to do it.
    I am Redhat Linux,Oracle 10g, SOLMAN 7 with PI7
    Can i extend the same for the EP systems also which are pure Java Stack Systems ?
    Also i would like to know if i can send customized alert messages.
    Best Regards
    Raghu

    Hi Juan,
    Thanks for your response.
    I am looking at the MTE classes i.e for the above situations which MTE classes are required.
    Also i have read in some document that we can send the alerts directly to the email IDs and cell numbers without having to mention them in user masters in SU01. Where to mention these ?
    I have my SCOT settings done for email servers.
    The process which i had built up in my mind is all mixed up and i am lost where to do which configuration
    Best Regards
    Raghu

  • Solution manager system monitoring configuration

    Hi
    I am configuring system monitoring in solution manager (Oracle / Solman 7.0 EHP1 / Windows 2008 / VM)
    I have added a satellite system to solution manager thru CCMS and CCMSPING agents. These are visible in RZ21 / Technical infrastructure / Overview. This has also been added in SMSY, SMSY when refreshed pulls out data from the satellite system. However I am having trouble with the transaction SOLUTION_MANAGER. This is where I setup system monitoring.
    Here I find the solution maanger system however am not able to find the satellite system which I had added.
    Thoughts?
    thanks
    Ravi

    Hi,
    Have you defined and added corresponding logical systems for the respective satellite systems?
    Here is the sequence of steps you've to do:
    in SMSY:
    1) Define server, DB, Systems
    2) Generate READ, TMW, TRUSTED RFCs to the satellite systems
    3) define logical systems and assign the satellite system to it
    in Solution_Manager:
    1) define new solution
    2) add the logical system into the solution
    If these steps are successful, you should be able to see the satellite system in SYSTEM MONITORING in Solution_Manager.
    Have you already done these steps?
    After performing these steps:
    Solution_Manager>choose relevant solution>operations setup>Solution Monitoring>System monitoring>Activate monitoring> choose the system and activate monitoring.
    Your system will then appear.
    Does this help any way?

  • Solution Manager Diagnostics don't display data

    Hi,
    I'm setting up Solution Manager Diagnostics at Solution Manager SP 22. I've installed Wily Introscope Enterpise Manager at Solution Manager Server, and Wily Introscope Agents at Solution Manager and Satellite systems as well.
    Wily Introscope is working properly, I receive statistics from all agents, and also I can see most of the graphics. BUT, after I install SMD Agent, I can't receive any data in Root Cause Analysis Workcenter ->  End-To-End Analysis -> system -> Workload Analysis.
    Here I can see a plot with all values at 0. If I try Enterprise Portal tab -> Portal Activity Reporting, I don't have any data.
    At Aplication Server Java tab -> J2EE Engine, I only can see forms like:
         E2E CV PPMS ID Variable 
         E2E Installation Number Variable       
         E2E SID Variable       <SID>         <SID>
         E2E Metric Type Variable(multiple values)       
                   SERVLETS 
                   WEB DYNPRO APPLICATI ONS
                   JCO CALLS 
                  SQL STATEMENTS 
    InfoProvider       
                  0SMD_PE2H
                  0SMD_PERH
    But if I execute or check  this form, I receive this message:
    Value "SERVLETS" for variable "E2E Metric Type Variable(multiple values)" is invalid.
    I've also followed SAPNote 1435043 - E2E Workload Analysis - No applicable data found, and checked prerequisites, RFC's, Jobs, Extractors and executed SOLMAN_SETUP transaction.
    I've followed all guides I've found for Diagnostics, but I don't know how can I solve this.
    Please, could you help me?
    Thanks in advance and regards.
    Tomas.

    Hi Tomas,
    I have exactly the same problem, I am on Solman SPS22, LMSERVICE SP06 patch2.
    and the satellite system pre-requisites and definition in SMSY are correct, also the MDX PARSER RFC is wrking fine.
    any idea on why is the Portal activity reporing is blank, while i get data under all the other tabs.
    Also, the agent application .log file shows the below warning
    "[email protected]: file portalActivity_6057051_1278074505498.txt could not be deleted"
    but i could not find the file in the satellite system.

  • Solution Manager Security

    Hello,
    I'm responsible to setup Solution Manager to provide Enterprise Support to the customer. I would like my customer to use Solution Manager by using Internet VPN connection. In the middle of preparation, I have some questions for Solution Manager Security. Because our company has very strict security policy, I need to make sure the questions below and make report to the manager.
    1. To follow our companyu2019s security policy, I need to select the port. Could you please let me know which port# do we need to open?  I think port# 80 and 443 are required to use Internet connection. Are there any required port #?
    2. What kind of Standard User Authentication does Solution Manager have? (Basic Authentication, Digest Authentication or other?)
    3. I would like to restrict any unauthorized access. What kind of access control does Solution Manager have? (Like Service Market Place, is there any authentication before entering first screen?)
    4. Is it possible to access both HTTP and HTTPS? If so, is it possible to restrict to HTTP connection? I think HTTPS is much safer.
    I read the Security Guide downloaded from Service Market Place, but still have questions. I really need someoneu2019s help.
    Thank you in advance.
    Best Regards,
    Natsumi

    Hi Natsumi,
    Your question addresses general topics of SAP NetWeaver Web Application Server.
    Please find some answers below and I would recommend to check the standard documentation.

    You can define your own port numbers to provide access.

    The first screen is the logon screen. Users needs to have logon data (user, password) to access the Work Center.
    The URL for the Key User is accessible in the Internet (and may be further restricted to dedicated IP address by additional network infrastructure).
    See section "4.4 Internet Communication Framework" in Security Guide.

  • Solution manager landscape ?

    Does Solution Manager landscape requires a typical 3 system landscape  or is it like
    one SOLMAN server for all the landscape.

    Hello,
    the technical prerequisites for Business Process Monitoring are described in SAP note 784752. Otherwise you find plenty of information in the Media Library under https://service.sap.com/bpm
    If you need functional consultants or not is somewhat depending on the scope you want to use for BPMon. You will see that BPMon provides a broad scope of out-of-the-box functionality which can be application related but can also be only used by technical guys, e.g. IDOC, qRFC, tRFC, File or background job monitoring.
    So there is no general answer to it. If you want to do full-blown BPMon then you will also need functional expertise.
