The installation key needs to be generated in your Solution Manager. SAP considers a Solution Manager a prerequisite for any installation or upgrade to ECC 5.0 and above.

The procedure to obtain the installation or upgrade key is as follows:

  • Log on to the Solution Manager system.
  • Call transaction SMSY.
  • Open landscape components.
  • If the system has not been defined yet: place the cursor on the Systems entry • [Right Mouse Button].
  • Enter the System ID, select the SAP product and product version. Press Save when finished.
To generate the key, System • Other object.
  • Mark System and enter the SID.
  • Press Generate Installation/Upgrade Key ( key-shaped icon ).
  • Enter the system number and message server host ( without domain ). Note that in some versions the system changes the host name to upper case, but this is of no importance.
  • Press Generate Key. The 10-character key value is displayed
