Q

Adding systems to Microsoft Management Console

This is a question regarding the Microsoft Management Console that is used to start/stop SAP in version 4.6. Does anyone know how to add several systems from different servers to one console? I tried changing the console settings and adding the other systems and hostname in the form: (hostname) (instancenumber) It seems to accept this input yet will always only show the locally installed system.

You need to copy these files into your PC's winntsystem32 directory:
-librfc32.dll
-sapmmc.dll
-sapstartsrv.exe

They are on the R/3 Kernel CD.
Then, register the DCOM typelibrary by typing: sapstartsrv -t -q Finally register the sapmmc.dll as follows: regsvr32 /s sapmmc.dll

Now you are ready to launch the MMC and add the SAP R/3 Snap-in and manage all your SAP servers.

This is topic is covered in my book "SAP Basis Administration ... A Step-by-Step Guide to Practical Daily Tasks and Activities", chapter 13, SAP R/3 Remote Management. A script called "SAP-r3-mmc-snapin.bat" is also included on the CD-ROM.
