There is an IDES version of S/4HANA available since april 2017. SAP note 2445594 - IDES S/4 HANA 1610 describes the details about the prerequisites.

I installed IDES S/4 HANA 1610 on this platform

  • Intel® Xeon® E5-1650 v3 Hexa-Core

  • 2x 960 SATA SDD RAID1

  • 256GB RAM

  • VMware ESXi 6.0


I ended up with 3 VMs running on this platform

  • Database instance

  • Primary application server

  • IDES S/4HANA frontend-server


Preparations


You have to download the following packages:

  • RDBMS HANA:
    SAP IN-MEMORY (SAP HANA) > HANA PLATFORM EDITION > SAP HANA PLATFORM EDITION > SAP HANA PLATFORM EDITION 2.0

  • HANA Client, SAP Kernel:
    SAP S/4HANA > SAP S/4HANA 1610

  • IDES export, IDES Frontend export, RDBMS ASE:
    SAP S/4HANA > SAP S/4HANA 1610 > IDES VERSION


Copy all archives to 120GB drive installation files to mount into VM and "unzip -x" or "unrar x". Delete archives after extract, 120GB is not sufficient space.

Installation of Database instance


Step-by-step description:

  1. Create VM with

    1. 208GB RAM

    2. 8 vCPU (1x socket, 8x core)

    3. 70 GB drive OS (Primary partition, EXT4)

    4. 32GB drive SWAP

    5. 200GB drive DB (Primary partition, EXT4)

    6. 120GB drive installation files



  2. Install SLES 12 SP2 as described in

    1. SAP note 1984787 - SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 12: Installation notes

    2. SAP note 2205917 - SAP HANA DB: Recommended OS settings for SLES 12 / SLES for SAP Applications 12



  3. Mount 200GB drive DB to directory /hana

  4. Mount 120GB drive to directory /mnt/sapnet

  5. Follow HANA_and_ABAP_on_One_Server.pdf in SAP note 1953429 - SAP HANA and SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP on one Server to install HANA database


Installation of Primary application server


Step-by-step description:

  1. Create VM with

    1. 16GB RAM

    2. 4 vCPU (1x socket, 4x core)

    3. 70 GB drive OS (Primary partition, EXT4)

    4. 16GB drive SWAP

    5. Reuse 120GB drive installation files



  2. Install SLES 12 SP2 like above

  3. Mount 120GB drive to directory /mnt/sapnet

  4. Install Software Provisioning Manager 1.0

  5. Run SPM with SAP S/4HANA 1610 > SAP S/4HANA 1610 Server > SAP HANA Database > SAP Systems > Application Server ABAP > Standard System

    1. (o) Typical

    2. Use IDES Export




Installation of IDES S/4HANA frontend-server


Step-by-step description:

  1. Create VM with

    1. 16GB RAM

    2. 4 vCPU (1x socket, 4x core)

    3. 70 GB drive OS (Primary partition, EXT4)

    4. 16GB drive SWAP

    5. 120GB drive DB (Primary partition, EXT4)

    6. Reuse 120GB drive installation files



  2. Install SLES 12 SP2 like above

  3. Mount 200GB drive DB to directory /sybase

  4. Mount 120GB drive to directory /mnt/sapnet

  5. Install Software Provisioning Manager 1.0

  6. Run SPM with SAP S/4HANA 1610 > AS ABAP for SAP S/4HANA Frontend > SAP ASE > SAP Systems > Application Server ABAP > Standard system

    1. (o) Typical

    2. Use IDES Frontend Export




After starting IDES S/4HANA frontend-server the system is hell slow, needs dozen of minutes to compile on SSD. I had to wait about hour after logon the first time. If you open top in shell, you will see the top process DATASERVER with 100 percent CPU.

Go directly after 1st logon to menu System > Services > Jobs > Job Overview and kill jobs

  •  /UIF/LREP_LOAD_CONSISTENCY_CHECK

  •  SAP_CCMS_MONI_BATCH_STARTUP_DP


Maybe someone can mention SAP note 2411647 - /UI5/APP_INDEX_CALCULATE and /UIF/LREP_LOAD_CONSISTENCY_CHECK jobs failing - BS on ASE in SAP note 2445594 under 10. Last minute information

Follow SAP Note 2445594 and set parameter rsdb/max_blocking_factor = 5 in RZ11

Lessons learned



  • Software Provisioning Manager does not install SAP HANA database

  • I could not foul IDES Frontend Export with MaxDB, setup hangs after 5 failed imports, even database is calculated to 140GB instead of ~80GB SAP ASE


Todos



  • done. Run SGEN in IDES S/4HANA frontend-server to find out final database size

  • Check configuration in IDES S/4HANA frontend-server to backend Primary application server

  • Install JAVA instance

  • Make backups

Updates



  • [2017-MAY-15] After the first weekend job /UIF/LREP_LOAD_CONSISTENCY_CHECK finished its first run with long runtime, 6-9 hours on SSD with 100% CPU for DATASERVER and blocks any other background operation from other standard jobs during runtime and slows down the whole system. But now, it looks ok.
