Installing the ABAP Stand Alone Gateway

Prerequisites

You need administrator authorization for the SAP Internet Mail Gateway server.

You have assigned a system name <SID> for the ABAP stand alone gateway.

The same restrictions apply for the SID as for a normal SAP installation (three alphanumeric characters, first character cannot be a number). Please note that the following names are not permitted:

ADD, ALL, AND, ANY, ASC, COM, DBA, END, EPS, FOR, INT, KEY, LOG, MON, NOT, OFF, RAW, ROW, SAP, SET, SGA, SHO, SID, UID.

You can for example select SIG as the system name (provided this does not clash with a system that is already installed).

The installation program is located on your computer (in Windows NT in the subdirectory \NT\i386\) or on the SAP Presentation CD, which is part of the standard system of the SAP system.

Procedure

1.      Unix and Windows NT:

Execute the file R3gwinst.exe.

A wizard guides you through the installation process.

Set the number of CUA users to 0, as only SAP®SAP connections are used.

If the installation is unsuccessful and the Service SAP <SID> is already installed, you must remove the service manually using the command ntscmgr remove SAP<SID>_<ID> before the next installation attempt.

OS/400:

a)       Log on as user <SID>OFR.

b)       Execute the command CRTR3SYS.

c)       Execute the command CRTR3INST.

d)       Make the required entries. Enter *GATEWAY in the field Instance role.

Alternatively use program R3SETUP as described in the installation guide SAP Installation on IBM AS/400.

       1.      Add the following lines to the Gateway profile SIG_G00_<hostname>:

rdisp/max_gateways = 1

rdisp/workdir = d:\usr\sap\SIG\G00\work

rdisp/TRACE = 1

gw/max_sys = 30

gw/max_shm_req = 10

gw/max_wp = 0

gw/remsh = remsh

gw/keep_process = 1

gw/rem_start = REMOTE_SHELL
