aLTeReGo​ any progress with #sap (#sap hana​ / #sap hcm​ / SAP PI / ...) monitoring in SAM? Any chance for templates not using Icon-Software's plugin?

0 Kudos

We have not made any updates which would remove the SAPOrion requirement.

Thanks aLTeReGo​ and stevenwhunt​ for the reply.

Do I understand correctly that the main problem is to connect to CCMS or in other words to collect data via SAP's own protocol?

Anyway if someone would be interested in natively monitor SAP in SAM please let me know as I'm also interested in such solution.

From my understanding, SAP exposes its data via a web services API. You can likely collect anything you need via a custom script component monitor. We have also opened a feature request for voting ( ).

This would be a question better suited for stevenwhunt​, as he is now the Product Manager for SAM.

Any updates on this other than the Orion SAP Sensors?

0 Kudos

what version? we currently have 6.1

Those templates should work with SAM v5.5 or later.

I'm getting a "This user must be a valid user on the Orion Server/Polling Engine." error. The user is already in Orion.

The user credentials used with these templates must be a Windows Administrator account on the local Orion server. The SAP credentials are specified in the profile created using Icon Software's SAPOrion.

why does it need local Windows Admin when it's pulling the data from SAP server? Anyway I can change the SAP credentials in the template or have to generate my own from SAPOrion software?

0 Kudos

The code executes locally on the Orion server itself and as such must execute within the context of a named user account. This is why you must specify credentials for the Orion server itself. Your SAP credentials must be entered into the SAPOrion profile editor, which are then saved in a file (By Default under C:\SAPOrion\i62external.P09) which is called by SAM when polled.

OK. So running as local Orion server admin is not working. We need to purchase SAPOrion profile editor for this to work?

Correct. The template(s) don't do anything without SAPOrion.

Hi,

in the meantime there are a lot of SAP monitors / sensors for SolarWinds Orion available.

Find them by Google with the keywords "Orion SAP Sensors"

Hi Guys,
I don't suppose there has been any update to this? Does anyone have an idea of which basic services are required for SAP to operate if I were to create a very basic template?

Thanks,

Michael

Hi Denny,

I know this is an old post, but just curious if any progress was made in developing an APM template for SAP?  We'll be evaluating APM shortly, and this template would be extremely helpful.

Thanks in advance..
