Issues with EP 6 SP 15

Former Member
0 Kudos

We are preparing to roll out EP 6 SP 15 and wanted to see if anyone had any issues, mainly performance issues, that we should be aware of and/or how to resolve them. Also if you have any tips, hints, warnings or well wishes, we would love to hear them!

Summary of our configuration .....

We have ~7500 users in 250 locations. We will have a 5-node cluster running on Windows 2003. We use Novell's e-directory for UME, SQL Server Database and ITS. We use ESS and MSS and also connect to the SAP GUI for SAP R/3, BW, HR, APO and CRM through our Portal using SSO.

We are currently running EP 5 SP 5 (for the past 2-1/2 yrs). We had performance and stability problems with that implementation, and needless to say, are a little "gun shy" in our EP 6 rollout. We are building our EP 6 environment on separate hardware so we can just "turn the switch" for our users.

Hi Tracy,

As long as your hardware is sized properly and you've done performance testing you should be OK. Performance (good or bad) can be due to a number of components, not just the portal. If you haven't already, check out these how-to guides.

If you go to the link

In the navigation on the left side, choose "Portal, KM and Collaboration" In the center pane, expand "portal" and "all". you will find a guide on "finetuning the portal platform" and "optimizing network traffic" along with a number of other you may find useful.

Good luck
