Hi Sap Gurus,
Can any one tell me is KPro tick that we make in Document type if it is related to the storage types we are going to use,
Can this KPro feature for Document type can be used for any document type irrespective of the Storage type, like weather storage type may be Vault, Archive, SAP DataBase, or the Content Server,
let me also know waht is the benifits of going for this Kpro Tick in Document type (apart from Storing n no of original files in the DIR)
we are trying to store original files in acommon Server (not content server) can we avail all the features of Kpro Tick.
Thanks and regards
Kpro marked in any of the document type is for indication of using content server as a external storage system.
Yes, Kpro can be ticked to any document type but since this is related to only external storage device so this wont support storage systems like Sap Database, Vault but supports to Archieve through Archievelink interface.
Benefits are many and depends upon the business requirement..
1. all the documents related to the organisation can be storaged in external content server rather thn in SAP database of R/3 system which avoids load on R/3 database.
2. as you said, n number of files can be attached.
3. it can be used in terms of attachments in Additional files, product stucture and so on.
4. if Content sever is used also along with cache server then this main server can be used as a central storage location from where globally users can do transaction of documents without and error and in short time.
Only Kpro storage provides all the functionality, you will be using common server which will be only accesible for storage purpose but not for the extra functions which Kpro provides..
hope this helps u..
pls consider points if useful..!!
