Before installing software, make sure that the date/time is synchronized on all servers. This is important for both LifeKeeper and SAP.

The Core Services, ABAP and Java Central Services (ASCS and SCS), are single points of failure (SPOFs) and therefore must be protected by LifeKeeper. Install these core services on the SAP Primary Server using the appropriate SAP Installation Guide.

Installation Notes

  • To be able to use the required virtual host names that were created in the Plan Your Configuration topic, set the SAPinst property SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME to specify the required virtual host names before starting SAPinst. (Note: Document the SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME virtual IP address as it will be used later during creation of the SAP resources in LifeKeeper.)

Run ./sapinst SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME={hostname}

  • In seven phases, the Core Services should be created and started. If permission errors occur on jdbcconnect.jar, go to /sapmnt/STC/exe/uc/linuxx86_64 and make that directory as well as file jdbcconnect.jar writeable (chmod 777 —-).
  • Installation completes with a success message.
