Loading Installation Packages from the Front End

Use

You want to load archives (*.CAR oder *.SAR) from the front end to the application server so that you can use the Add-On Installation Tool to install the corresponding package.

If these archives are smaller than 10 MB, proceed as described here.

If the archives are larger than 10 MB, proceed as described in Loading Installation Packages from the Application Server, since the procedure that is described here is not suitable for large installation packages.

Procedure

  1. Call the SAP Add-On Installation Tool with transaction SAINT.
  2. Choose Installation Package ® Load packages ® From front end. The system displays a dialog box for selecting an archive.
  3. Select the corresponding archive. The system displays a dialog box that shows you the contents of the archive.

To suppress this dialog box, you must make the appropriate settings in the Add-On Installation Tool.

  1. To copy the archive to the application server and then decompress it, choose Decompress. After the package you want to install has been decompressed, it appears in the Add-On Installation Tool.

Result

The archive has been copied to the application server and decompressed. The original archive has been deleted on the application server. (See also Making Settings for the Add-On Installation Tool).
