SolMan and SLD
I have installed Solman 4.0 and SLD.
Is possible to configure SMSY without to configure SLD previously?
Yes technically it is possible to configure Solman without an SLD.
It is entirely up to you - you can have separate SLD
islands used for different products - you can
even have 2 central SLDs using the same SLD bridge
You can also have as many SLD as you wish - bearing in
mind this will increase administration.
SLD usage for Solution Manager is not as critical as
useage for XI because SMSY in solution manager can
obtain system data via STMS and you can also add
data manually, it normally only benefits Solution Manager
to connect to an existing SLD which already has been
populated otherwise you would have to setup SLD only
to populate SMSY which can be populated directly without SLD.
If SLD does not already exist with systems for other clients
the time advantage of using it with Solution Manager is
You can connect Solution Manager as a client or data
supplier to any SLD at any time after installation - not a problem
just change SLDAPICUST destinations and RZ70 settings. Also please check once the settings in SMSY_Setup and remove the write back option in the Expert Configuration for SLD.
Hope that this reply answers your query.
