Hi - can someone please give me the basics on how to implement CPS. We have Solution Manager 7 running on Oracle 10g in Windows environment. Can we implement CPS into the existing Solution Manager database? or do we need to install another Oracle instance (and hence clean database) for CPS? Also - do future versions of Solution Manager come shipped with CPS already installed?
If you plan to use CPS Version 7, which is not fully integrated into the SAP environment and requires an oracle database, you should install the CPS runtime on a seperate machine. But you were able to use an existing Oracle database instance. CPS would conntect to that host and simply create a new scheme on the existing database for its job repository.
The newest version of SAP CPS (CPS for NeWeaver 7.0) is in the ramp up phase at the moment.
This new version runs within a Java Stack of a NetWeaver and therefore is platform and database independant (and therefore fully integrated into the SAP environment).
As soon as the ramp up phase is over (which is probably in September 2008), a basic version of CPS will be delivered with each shipment of an SAP NetWeaver 7.0 System. So it also should also be available with a SolMan shipment.
