Installation of SAP ECC HA on Windows 2012 MSCS

Hi Everyone,

We are installing SAP ECC 6.0 EHP6 on Windows 2012 MSCS with MS SQL Server 2012 as database. The information provided in Installation guides is very limited about creating Roles (earlier services and applications in Windows 2008 R2 cluster).

Request to share any OSS Notes or Document related to installation of SAP ECC 6.0 EHP6 on windows 2012 cluster

Thanks and Regards



Dear Abdul,

Thanks for the reply. The question more towards information on Windows 2012 Failover Cluster. The lead time of this posting listed helped us in installing the system.

For the benefit of other friends on this forum, we have performed the installation as below

1. Installation of Windows Server Failover cluster (WSFC) as regular cluster setup (like Windows 2008 R2)

2. Installation of SQL Server 2012 in WSFC (This is created and configured as Role in cluster)

3. Followed OSS Note 1715878 to setup the cluster command interface in Windows 2012 FC.

4.SAP Cluster group creation as Role (We need to create this group in Windows Active Directory and DNS for SWPM to resolve hostname and IP address). This is performed as part of the Installation during step High Availability System - First MSCS Node

5. Installed Database Instance

6. Performed Additional cluster node steps

7. Installed Central Instance and Application Server Instance

We did not get a chance to try SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn feature. during this exercise but will be glad to share any experiences if we get the chance

Thanks and Regards
