SAP BPC 7 NW Development Server Question

Former Member

Hi Experts,

I have only worked on the MS version of SAP BPC and we need a development area for the NW version for project that are coming up. I am used to the MS version where you only need one box and you can develop to your hearts desire. I went through the NW installation guide and it is now as clear as mud

Could you please help me with the following questions:

1. How many physical boxes will i have to buy? Do you really have to allocate one sever for .Net and the other for the NW?

2. If two boxes are required, what server specs would you suggest for a development are for a team of about 10 developers?

3. Hasn't anyone put together a VMWare version of the BPC 7 NW server setup yet that is available for download/purchase?

That is all the questions that i have for now, assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Ideally you would install the components of BPC 7.0 NW, namely 32-bit .NET app server and 64-bit ABAP server on separate physical boxes as per the recommendation of the guide. However, for a smaller environment set up, you can install them both on the same physical box (especially for < 10 users).

We built a 64-bit windows server and have successfully set this up on the same box but it is by no means a productive system and we are still in the process of QA'ing the install.

for a small dev. server you can have both NW and .net in one 64 bit machine but you need to make the IIS setting that 32 bit .net server can work in 64bit mode.

You can even have a VMware version, but note that it is not supported by SAP.
