SUS and SRM
Have a very fundamental query.It has been confusing me a bit.
We have implemented SRM 4.0 and have R/3 4.6c as the backend system.
Now,the proposal is to add SUS to the landscape.My questions:
Q1.]Is SUS an add-on to SRM or a separate insatallation/server?
Q2.]In SRM IMG,we have SUS node and some configuration(master data,BADI's,Technical settings etc)...what does this mean?If SUS is a separate install,will i still get the SUS nodes in SRM?
Q3.]We are planning a MM-SUS scenario.If SUS is a separate install,do we have to make any settings on SRM side?
Please direct me.
SUS is a part of mySAP SRM solution.
In fact, all SUS objects, programs, services and so on are delivered in SRM solution (i.e. included in SRM Server 5.0).
So when you install an SRM, you also have all the SUS functions.
1) For production, install SUS on a separate server (usually in the DMZ). It is a new installation of a SRM system. SUS is not an add-on or an additional component to install, but included in SRM Server 5.0.
2) SUS being in SRM Server, you have got the IMG in this SRM Server. So SUS settings are made in SUS server (in the DMZ for example)
3) for SUS-MM scenario, all exchanges are made between SUS and MM, so your SRM 4.0 used for self service procurement or other scenarios has nothing to do here. The customizing has to be done in SUS (i.e. in the SRM Server where SUS is enabled).
PS: please don't do the same reply as Sam Jenkins on CCM addon IMG in SRM, or I will become crazy )
