  10.7 Installing SAP® R/3® Contributed by Holger Kipp.   Original version converted to SGML by Valentino Vaschetto.   Installations of  SAP ® Systems using FreeBSD will not be supported by the SAP support team --they only offer support for certified platforms. 10.7.1 Preface This document describes a possible way of installing a SAP   R/3 ® System with Oracle ®Database for Linux onto a FreeBSD machine, including the installation of FreeBSD and Oracle .Two different configurations will be described:    SAP   R/3 4.6B (IDES) with Oracle 8.0.5 on FreeBSD 4.3-STABLE    SAP   R/3 4.6C with Oracle 8.1.7 on FreeBSD 4.5-STABLEEven though this document tries to describe all important steps in a greater detail, it is notintended as a replacement for the Oracle and SAP   R/3 installation guides.Please see the documentation that comes with the SAP   R/3 Linux editionfor SAP and Oracle specific questions, as well as resources from Oracle and SAP OSS . 10.7.2 Software The following CD-ROMs have been used for SAP installations: 10.7.2.1 SAP R/3 4.6B, Oracle® 8.0.5 Name Number Description KERNEL 51009113 SAP Kernel Oracle / Installation / AIX, Linux, SolarisRDBMS 51007558 Oracle / RDBMS 8.0.5.X / LinuxEXPORT1 51010208 IDES / DB-Export / Disc 1 of 6EXPORT2 51010209 IDES / DB-Export / Disc 2 of 6EXPORT3 51010210 IDES / DB-Export / Disc 3 of 6EXPORT4 51010211 IDES / DB-Export / Disc 4 of 6EXPORT5 51010212 IDES / DB-Export / Disc 5 of 6EXPORT6 51010213 IDES / DB-Export / Disc 6 of 6 Additionally, we used the Oracle 8 Server (Pre-production version 8.0.5 for Linux,   Kernel Version 2.0.33) CD which is not really necessary, and FreeBSD 4.3-STABLE (itwas only a few days past 4.3 RELEASE). 10.7.2.2 SAP R/3 4.6C SR2, Oracle 8.1.7 Name Number Description KERNEL 51014004 SAP Kernel Oracle / SAP Kernel Version 4.6D / DEC, LinuxRDBMS 51012930 Oracle 8.1.7/ RDBMS / LinuxEXPORT1 51013953 Release 4.6C SR2 / Export / Disc 1 of 4EXPORT1 51013953 Release 4.6C SR2 / Export / Disc 2 of 4EXPORT1 51013953 Release 4.6C SR2 / Export / Disc 3 of 4  Name Number Description EXPORT1 51013953 Release 4.6C SR2 / Export / Disc 4 of 4LANG1 51013954 Release 4.6C SR2 / Language / DE, EN, FR / Disc 1 of 3 Depending on the languages you would like to install, additional language CDs might benecessary. Here we are just using DE and EN, so the first language CD is the only oneneeded. As a little note, the numbers for all four EXPORT CDs are identical. All threelanguage CDs also have the same number (this is different from the 4.6B IDES releaseCD numbering). At the time of writing this installation is running on FreeBSD 4.5-STABLE (20.03.2002). 10.7.3 SAP Notes The following notes should be read before installing SAP   R/3 and proved to be usefulduring installation: 10.7.3.1 SAP R/3 4.6B, Oracle 8.0.5 Number Title 0171356 SAP Software on Linux: Essential Comments0201147 INST: 4.6C R/3 Inst. on UNIX - Oracle0373203 Update / Migration Oracle 8.0.5 --> 8.0.6/8.1.6 LINUX0072984 Release of Digital UNIX 4.0B for Oracle0130581 R3SETUP step DIPGNTAB terminates0144978 Your system has not been installed correctly0162266 Questions and tips for R3SETUP on Windows NT / W2K 10.7.3.2 SAP R/3 4.6C, Oracle 8.1.7 Number Title 0015023 Initializing table TCPDB (RSXP0004) (EBCDIC)0045619 R/3 with several languages or typefaces0171356 SAP Software on Linux: Essential Comments0195603 RedHat 6.1 Enterprise version: Known problems0212876 The new archiving tool SAPCAR0300900 Linux: Released DELL Hardware0377187 RedHat 6.2: important remarks0387074 INST: R/3 4.6C SR2 Installation on UNIX0387077 INST: R/3 4.6C SR2 Inst. on UNIX - Oracle0387078 SAP Software on UNIX: OS Dependencies 4.6C SR2 10.7.4 Hardware Requirements The following equipment is sufficient for the installation of a SAP   R/3 System . Forproduction use, a more exact sizing is of course needed: Component 4.6B 4.6C Processor 2 x 800MHz Pentium® III 2 x 800MHz Pentium IIIMemory 1GB ECC 2GB ECC  Component 4.6B 4.6C Hard Disk Space 50-60GB (IDES) 50-60GB (IDES) For use in production, Xeon ™ Processors with large cache, high-speed disk access (SCSI,RAID hardware controller), USV and ECC-RAM is recommended. The large amount of hard disk space is due to the preconfigured IDES System, which creates 27 GB of database files during installation. This space is also sufficient for initial productionsystems and application data. 10.7.4.1 SAP R/3 4.6B, Oracle 8.0.5 The following off-the-shelf hardware was used: a dual processor board with 2800 MHz Pentium III processors, Adaptec ® 29160 Ultra160 SCSI adapter (for accessing a40/80 GB DLT tape drive and CDROM), Mylex ® AcceleRAID ™ (2 channels, firmware 6.00-1-00 with 32 MB RAM). To the Mylex RAID controller are attached two 17 GB harddisks (mirrored) and four 36 GB hard disks (RAID level 5). 10.7.4.2 SAP R/3 4.6C, Oracle 8.1.7 For this installation a Dell ™   PowerEdge ™ 2500 was used: a dual processor board with two 1000 MHz Pentium III processors (256 kB Cache), 2 GB PC133 ECC SDRAM, PERC/3DC PCI RAID Controller with 128 MB, and an EIDE DVD-ROM drive. To the RAIDcontroller are attached two 18 GB hard disks (mirrored) and four 36 GB hard disks(RAID level 5). 10.7.5 Installation of FreeBSD First you have to install FreeBSD. There are several ways to do this, for more informationread the Section 2.13.  10.7.5.1 Disk Layout To keep it simple, the same disk layout both for the SAP   R/3 46B and SAP   R/3 46CSR2 installation was used. Only the device names changed, as the installations were ondifferent hardware ( /dev/da and /dev/amr respectively, so if using an AMI MegaRAID ®,one will see /dev/amr0s1a instead of  /dev/da0s1a ): File system Size Mounted on /dev/da0s1a  1 GB /   /dev/da0s1b  6 GB swap /dev/da0s1e  2 GB /var   /dev/da0s1f  8 GB /usr   /dev/da1s1e  45 GB /compat/linux/oracle   /dev/da1s1f  2 GB /compat/linux/sapmnt   /dev/da1s1g  2 GB /compat/linux/usr/sap   Configure and initialize the two logical drives with the Mylex or PERC/3 RAID softwarebeforehand. The software can be started during the BIOS boot phase.  Please note that this disk layout differs slightly from the SAP recommendations,as SAP suggests mounting the Oracle subdirectories (and some others) separately -- wedecided to just create them as real subdirectories for simplicity. 10.7.5.2  make world  and a New Kernel Download the latest -STABLE sources. Rebuild world and your custom kernel afterconfiguring your kernel configuration file. Here you should also include the kernelparameters which are required for both SAP   R/3 and Oracle .   10.7.6 Installing the Linux Environment 10.7.6.1 Installing the Linux Base System First the linux_base port needs to be installed (as root ): # cd /usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-fc4# make install distclean 10.7.6.2 Installing Linux Development Environment The Linux development environment is needed, if you want to install Oracle on FreeBSDaccording to the Section 10.6:  # cd /usr/ports/devel/linux_devtools# make install distclean The Linux development environment has only been installed for the SAP   R/3 46BIDES installation. It is not needed, if the Oracle DB is not relinked on the FreeBSDsystem. This is the case if you are using the Oracle tarball from a Linux system. 10.7.6.3 Installing the Necessary RPMs To start the R3SETUP program, PAM support is needed. During the first SAP Installation onFreeBSD 4.3-STABLE we tried to install PAM with all the required packages and finallyforced the installation of the PAM package, which worked. For SAP   R/3 4.6C SR2 wedirectly forced the installation of the PAM RPM, which also works, so it seems thedependent packages are not needed: # rpm -i --ignoreos --nodeps --root /compat/linux --dbpath /var/lib/rpm \pam-0.68-7.i386.rpm For Oracle 8.0.5 to run the intelligent agent, we also had to install the RedHat Tclpackage tcl-8.0.5-30.i386.rpm (otherwise the relinking during Oracle installation willnot work). There are some other issues regarding relinking of  Oracle , but that isa Oracle Linux issue, not FreeBSD specific. 10.7.6.4 Some Additional Hints
