S/4Hana Setup on-premise (part 1)

In my documentation I’ll explain how to migrate a current on-premise ERP system running on ASE database to S4Hana by using DMO for SUM 1.0 SP13.

For my setup the migration will encore on Hana rev100 with SAP Simple Finance, On-Premise Edition 1503 (SAP HANA ANALY. FOR SFIN 2.0)

Disclaimer: For my deployment I did not consider the sizing exercise, always do it in order to avoid issue. Also no custom code reside on my system, so if it's your case run the custom code management for Hana migration.

In order execution

  • Generate the upgrade queue for Ehp7
  • Install the new Hana database
  • Download DMO for SUM 1.0 SP13
  • Run the DMO process
  • Install and configure SFIN 2.0

Help SAP Hana for SFIN 2.0

Overview Architecture

The following architecture is based on physical server for Hana and virtual server for the ERP system. I’ll use our Hana CoE to perform this migration to S4Hana.

For this configuration I’ll intentionally split the DMO process for SFin 2.0 installation, in other word I’ll first upgrade and migrate with DMO and then do the SFin 2.0 installation.

Generate the upgrade queue for Ehp7

My system is already register In Solman, I need to generate my queue to target Netweaver 7.40 and ERP 6.0 Ehp7

Download your stack xml and the package.

Install the new Hana Database

The rep-requisite before doing the migration is to have the new database available, so I’ll create the new database on the revision 100.

Since the installation is straight forward I’ll just show the summary for the install

Download DMO for SUM 1.0 SP13

From the SL Toolset web page download the last SUM version

Run the DMO process

My system has been backed up, the stack has been downloaded and the DMO for SUM is decompressed in my /usr/sap/<SID>, I can now start my migration.

Before you start the upgrade process take in consideration that some works needs to be perform before and after. Refer to the upgrade guide ERP 6.0 Ehp7

Not like the regular SUM process the DMO run by using the hostagent option

The upgrade/migration done make the check on the system to see which DB is operate and of course I do a backup of my system

Install and configure SFIN 2.0

S4HANA (currently release SFIN 2.0) deployment consist of 2 main component

•    SAP SFINANCIALS 2.0 ADD-ON installation/Upgrade (ERP side)

•    SAP HANA Live 2.0 VDM for SFIN On-Premise Edition (Hana side)

Important consideration before to start:

•    Prepare the application data migration before the add-on is installed or upgraded. This requires knowledge in application FI, CO and Asset Accounting.

•    Potentially existing data inconsistencies need to be resolved before the add-on installation / upgrade. Afterwards this may no longer be possible

•    Check whether the add-on installation will be possible, verify the currently installed software components in regards to their compatibility with SAP Simple Finance 2.0 (SAP Note 2103558)

•    Check customer-owned code for any adaptations needed to comply with the new SAP Simple Finance data model, otherwise the SAP Simple Finance installation may be blocked with ABAP dictionary activation errors.

SAP SFINANCIALS 2.0 ADD-ON installation/Upgrade (ERP side)

For my document I use the add-on: SAP Simple Finance, on-premise edition 1503 support package stack 1508

Based on:

•    SAP enhancement package 7 for SAP ERP 6.0 SP Stack 09

•    SAP NetWeaver 7.40 SP Stack 11

•    Kernel used kernel 7.42 SP 32 or higher

This specific add-on doesn’t support the regular installation over SAINT, run the SUM to install and update it. Before to run the process implement the relevant note according the note 2117481

Once the note are implemented, from solution manager (MOPZ) download the add-on

Once the package completely downloaded run the DMO process to install it

Once process done check out the new installed component

The Abap add-on installed now, the SAP Simple Finance, On-Premise Edition 1503 component needs to install on Hana.
