SAP Linux Applicationserver to SAP on I


Has anyone a solution to connect an Applicationserver under Linux to a SAP-System on IBM I?

In the PAM we see, that this is not supported by SAP, perhaps there is a planning to do this.

Hi Cornelius,

unfortunately, this was supported since 4.6D and is no longer supported because too few customers used it. So, this is not an option for now ro the future.

If you want to connect the 2 systems, you can do this via RFC on the one hand and with a secondary connect from Linux to DB2 on IBM i - this is now supported in a great way because of the XDN driver. The DB Multiconnect works really great !

But, you still do need a linux DB like MaxDB or Oracle for this ...
