SolMan and SLD

Hi All

I have installed Solman 4.0 and SLD.

Is possible to configure SMSY without to configure SLD previously?

Dear Fabian,

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.
