Administering SAP NetWeaver

Use this scenario variant to administer your SAP NetWeaver system landscape. To administer effectively while maintaining the lowest possible TCO, we recommend that you use central tools from which you can access your entire system landscape (see also the general introduction in Administering SAP NetWeaver).

The scenario variant differentiates between typical administrative tasks such as starting and stopping, and tasks in the context of process automation (scheduling):

·        Use the SAP NetWeaver Administrator as the central tool for administering your system landscape. This should be set up on a system with the installable units AS ABAP, AS Java, and EP, the central administration and monitoring system. You should also set up an administrative System Landscape Directory (SLD) on this system.

For detailed information about setting up the central administration and monitoring system, see the Monitoring Setup Guide – SAP NetWeaver 2004s at the Internet address service.sap.com/OperationsNW2004s.

·        You can use the Job scheduling capabilities of SAP NetWeaver to centrally perform the process automation for an entire system landscape. This includes both the definition and scheduling and the monitoring of jobs. Install Job scheduling capabilities of SAP NetWeaver as a standalone engine on the central administration and monitoring system.
