SAP ABAP IDES 6.0 install


I have installed SAP IDES 6.0 on server 2008 R2 and both the application and the SQL 2008 Databases were  hosted on the same server. I want to install the application server on a separate server and the SQL 2012 on its own server such that in future I will be able to add application servers. Are there any steps or someone can help how to achieve this i.e on SAP Application ABAP Install do I have to choose Distributed System or High Availability. The other thing when the application and the SQL where hosted on the same server the install created the SAP Databases on SQL.

Thanks for your help guys,

Hi Macdonald

You can use the Windows 2012 server with MS Sql 2012 DB in Windows Cluster environment. it very easy to maintenance OS / DB. Before starting the SAP installation you have to completed the Windows OS alone with latest service pack, Secure updates & MS 2012 DB installation with Failover cluster.

Kindly refer the SAP Note 2209434 - IDES ERP 6.0 incl. EHP7 (Release 2015)
