System Landscape Directory (SLD)
The System Landscape Directory (SLD) of SAP NetWeaver is the central source of system landscape information relevant for the management of your software life-cycle. By providing a directory comprising information about all software available from SAP for installation and automatically updated data about systems already installed in a landscape, you get the foundation for tool support to plan software life-cycle tasks in your system landscape.
Figure 1: At the left, you see technical systems forming the technical landscape. The SLD gathers technical system's data and provides access to this data for applications and SAP Solution Manager.
For detailed information on specific questions in blogs and demos see More on System Landscape Directory.
This documentation provides an overview of the System Landscape Directory of SAP NetWeaver.
This presentation provides a starting point to learn how the System Landscape Directory works and what services it provides.
With the Maintenance Planner running in the SAP Support Portal being generally available, there is a new client application of SLD/LMDB data. This also affects SLD/LMDB topology considerations - for details see:
