We are about to install a BI, EP and SCM Development environment and we're considering using a server network to handle the communications between the servers so that it doesn't 'hit' the client network.
I read an old SAP Network Integration Guide (BTW - does anyone know whether this has been updated in the last 3-4 years? I'm damned if I can find a recent copy!), which explains how to do this, but the guide is so old it doesn't mention anything about Java or Netweaver.
My question is - is it still recommended to split client and server traffic across different networks in a SAP Java environment?
So you are planning your system landscapes. You can find some doc about SLD.
BI, EP,SCM,ERP are all based on NetWeaver(ABAP&Java application server).
I don't know much about network transport problems. We have several NetWeaver, ERP, BI,EP in different locations. Everything is all right. Only portal demand more brandwith. SAP GUI is OK.
