Hi,

I am trying to set up an instance of: "SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP and SAP BW 7.50 SP02 on ASE [Developer Edition]". However, I would like to reduce the volume sizes of the virtual machines to t2.micro-Instance to reduce costs. Unfortunately, also when using the advanced mode, I am not able to change the volume type.

1.) Which developer Edition is creating the least costs but is including SAP BW?

2.) Or is there a cheaper way to get more hands- on experience in SAP BW?

3.) Trial- editions are just running 90 days, right?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Kind regards

Achim

Hi Achim,

t2.micro is quite weak to run AS ABAP. In SAP CAL you will find only VM sizes that match the system requirements for the particular solution.

The trial solutions have different license agreement but the same system requirements, i.e. the trial solution will not optimize the AWS costs.

Hi,

I created an instance of SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP and SAP BW 7.5 SP01 on SAP HANA SP10 using AWS.

The instance runs well, i can connect using Hana Studio and SAP GUI.

But I have a issue with the pre-configured users DEVELOPER and BWDEVELOPER.

These users do not exist in the ABAP server, only DDIC and SAP*??!!

Thanks for help!

Hi,

I created an instance of SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP & SAP Business Warehouse 7.4 SP10 on SAP HANA 1.0 SP8 and tried to log on to the virtual machine using Remote Desktop.

But I received this error: "Remote desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:1. the remote access to the server is not  enabled  2. the remote computer is turned off

3. the remote computer is not available on the network".

I'm trying to connect to the server (SAP Frontend Externe IP-Adresse)

How can I establish the RDC?

Thank you.

Hello,

Same symptoms as Marco: Simply cannot connect, as if the ABAP server is not running.


So I logged onto the ASE system via the console, found that this was indeed the case. After some poking around I found the cause in the ASE log file:


00:0000:00000:00000:2015/11/06 12:37:44.04 kernel

SySAM: Using licenses from: /sybase/NPL/SYSAM-2_0/licenses/SYBASE_ASE_TD.lic

SySAM: License feature name:  ASE_CORE

(I stripped some date/timestamps for readability)

Looking at an older log I see that it had been warning me all along:

00:0000:00000:00000:2015/09/25 08:58:13.84 kernel  SySAM: WARNING: ASE will shutdown on Sun 01 Nov 2015 12:00:00

AM UTC, unless a suitable ASE_CORE license is obtained before that date.

My bad, haven't been reading my database log every day. Any input on how I can get this up and running again? I thought the developer edition was supposed to have an ongoing license:

AS ABAP incl. BW 7.4 SP8 on SAP ASE 15.7
[Developer Edition]


I would try the minsap license page, but I don't have a hardware key, because I cannot log in. 😞

Any assistance appreciated,

Mike


Edit: I just found the CAL space, posting this issue over there.

Mike is actually right, the ASE license of instances deployed before November 2nd expired end of October. If you plan to continue using your system, send me a private message and I will try to solve the problem together with you. We are looking for a better solution, hope we find one soon and will then publish here.

Hi,

I managed to create an instance of SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP & SAP Business Warehouse 7.4 SP8 on SAP HANA 1.0 SP8 on AWS and log on to the virtual machine using Remote Desktop. However, I'm not able to log on to SAP with users DEVELOPER or BWDEVELOPER using the same master password I used when I created the instance (and to log on into the OS).

I terminated the instance and created new ones many times already but I'm still having the same issue.

Am I supposed to use a different password for these users?

Hi Marco,
when saying you cannot logon what's the error message?

On OS level, you cannot logon via password but only via ssh-key (you receive the pem file when you create the instance). Using the SSH-Key you should then be able to logon as root on OS.

Additionally you might try to logon as DDIC or SAP* user - but DEVELOPER should work fine (but you might give DDIC or SAP* a try).

Hi Jasmin,

I'm a bit of a newbie so please bear with me .

I'm able to log on to the front end using Windows Remote Desktop. However I'm not able to log on to SAP itself, using SAP GUI for example. The master password (the same I used to log on to the system) is not working for the SAP users.

Additionally, when I activated the instance to take some screenshots about this issue, another issue arises. I'm now getting a connection error in SAP GUI.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

Hi Marco,

let me try to understand. You can logon via Remote Desktop but from there on, you cannot logon via SAPGui to the system, correct?

Or did you try to logon using your local SAPGui? If yes, please make sure not to hit a firewall (maybe the ports are blocked, either because they are not configured on the CAL in one of the instanciation steps or they are blocked by your company network rules).

The error message indicates that the ABAP server is not running. The exact reason why is hard to guess, but let me glimps into my crystal ball 🙂 We had such kind of issues once the overall size of the AWS instance was not "large enough" - but if you used all recommendations (once you instanciated the server on AWS) everything should be fine. But I assume that this might just be a temporary glitch - as you said "another issue arises", so I guess that was not the case last time.

Did you try to logon on OS level as mentioned above, i.e. using the SSH Key?

Cheers,
  Jasmin

Hi Jasmin,


let me try to understand. You can logon via Remote Desktop but from there on, you cannot logon via SAPGui to the system, correct?

That's correct. When I tried to log on via SAPGui on the frontend none of the SAP users accepted my master password.

Since my last reply, I managed to create a new instance and I finally managed to log on to SAP using my master password.

Though, I'm afraid if I suspend the instance I'll get the  "wsaewouldblock" error after activating it again. Let's hope for the best

Thank you very much and best regards!

Greetings Fellow BWers:

Got the cloud-based ABAP trial (running on SAP ASE) propped up and connected and loving it. Because I am running through some scenarios on the BI (BusinessObjects) side, I need to update the "Allow External Access" property of one or more sample Bex queries, Problem is: I cannot find them.

I am looking in the provided eclipse-based "SAP Dev Tools for Eclipse" under the pre-configured project for the bwdeveloper user, availalble on the remote desktop. Documentation says a BW Modeling project should have three folders: Back End Favorites, Favorites and InfoProvider. I see only Favorites.

I have installed the minisap technical licenses per the instructions on getting started (page 4) thinking that was the problem. I have also tried creating a new BW Modeling project, but it is empty.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I am noticing something about the new, super cool trial edition of SAP AS ABAP 7.4 trials available as virtual appliances via the cloud: They aren't publicly accessible like their SAP HANA counterparts are.

By publically accessible, I mean you cannot connect to them via public IP, e.g. configure them as an OLAP connection in the SAP BI (BusinessObjects) Platform. Looks like you pretty  much have to remote into them and do your stuff all locally.

Can anyone confirm this? It would be extremely beneficial to have them publically accessible as SAP HANA is, since BI activity for BW now extends to the entire BI suite.

Thanks!

Is there a way to download the server by now? I don't want to use AWS, as it requires a credit card. I just want to install a server on my own PC and start developing. When I started with ABAP developments a few years ago some collegues of mine had a server running on their own laptop, but when I search how to do this, I only find this strange cloud servers that are costly and dont work when you dont have internet.

From the perspective of SAP CAL - there is not difference in the appliances deployed in AWS and Azure. It's up to you to decide which is the better cloud provider for your need.

Hi Ventsislav,

Thanks, but I think you misunderstood my question: I'm talking about activating, not deploying.

I can start and stop my instance from the SAP CAL portal or from the AWS console. Is there a difference?

For me it's better to do it via AWS, because I need to log in there anyway to start my VPN server. I also don't need the SAP Frontend instance so it's an extra step (and small cost) to have SAP CAL start it up only for me to shut it down via AWS 10 minutes later.

Regards,

Mike

Hi Mike,

For start/stop operations there is no difference if initiated from CAL or AWS Console.

However 'Terminate' is recommended to be done from CAL to ensure proper cleanup of resources like eg. Security Groups which are associated with this instance.

Hi Rajvansh

Just working on it. You can expect the installation version for the ABAP on ASE SP8 Developer Edition that we have released some weeks ago for Cloud Appliance Library. So it is ASE based, not MaxDB based. We had some discussion with the colleagues on a comparable MaxDB version, you can let me know if you are interested in it, not completely out of reach.

Dear Christopher,

excited after my visit at the developer's garage, I directly set-up my ABAP on HANA. Everything worked like a charm, except the system not being able to resume y'day.

However, for a poor guy like me doing this as a hobby it's still comparatively expensive. Thus, I thought about using ABAP on a normal DB as my default development environment and then resume the expensive HANA-Box only when I develop stored procedures - and transport my developments between the systems.

However, I just recognized that ABAP on MaxDB is on SP02 (woooot? We're even on SP7 in our company). Are there any plans to provide an SP08-version on MaxDB / ASE?

Hi Oliver,

as Uwe already stated we plan to offer a new ABAP on ASE appliance in 2015, which runs in a much smaller VM (-> much cheaper).

I can't specify any release dates yet, but these are the plans and my colleagues are already working on step 1.

Hi Christopher,

I recall those plans (I was indeed pestering you for a long time that evening before TechEd), but I forgot about the first step to make ABAP on ASE available as virtual appliance.

So this also means that there will not be any updated version of ABAP on another DBMS earlier, I guess (which is understandable).

Looking forward to both the versions!

Hi Oliver

So keep pestering us always good to see real people behind such requests. Given the fact that we have just released the update on the ABAP on Hana trial (Cloud only) it is quite unlikely that we can be out with major updates before the projected ABAP on ASE will be made available. One more question from my side, as you mention other DBMSs: do you have a particular DBMS in mind you would like to see?

Hello Manfred,

I am quite happy with MaxDB, but am not too particular.

Like Oliver, I would prefer a local version, size is not an issue. I also have MaxDB and HANA instances in the cloud, and as the MaxDB is far cheaper to run that's the one I use most. But of course I would prefer to pay even less and run it on my laptop.

Hi,

     I'm having trouble using ADT (Luna) on a fresh NW 7.4 ABAP MaxDB instance.  The instance is up and running and I have no problem connecting to it over SAPGui.  I have been able to install Eclipse Luna and add all the software from SAP Development Tools for Eclipse - Luna Software Repository.  I have created an ABAP Project in ADT and successfully connected to the ABAP AS. I can browse the structure of the DEVELOPER's $TMP package and I can use the "Open with SAP GUI" option on the context menu in the project explorer.  However, when I try to just Open the object (in this case, a class), I get a "Problem Occurred" popup with the error "Widget is disposed".

I just talked to my ADT colleague and he told me that the latest ADT package for Luna on the update site seems to be corrupt. Thus, either try Kepler with ADT or wait until the Luna package has been updated.

Best regards,

Christopher

Hi Christopher,

Thanks very much.  I have installed Kepler and that works fine.  This unfortunately is one of the dangers of trying to drag ABAPers into the modern age: if it doesn't work straight away, we're stumped!

Is there somewhere I can keep an eye on in SCN that will let me know when these sort of things get updated/fixed.

Thanks again,

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

unfortunately, the only place where you could get this information (related to ADT) is the SCN space of ADT. But I can't find any related posts yet. At least I know that my IDE colleagues are working with high pressure to fix the Luna package.

Best regards,

Christopher
