Hi,

I will deploy SAP 7.10 for some users in the office. I use a Software Delivery software to push out the .exe file silently at the workstations based on a command line.
I use this:
\\Server\Shared folder\NwSapSetup.exe /Silent /Package="my package"
It works fine but I also want to install a Patch. I dont want to install the patch separately. I want it to install at the same time as the base software package is being installed.
I have read the documentation but cant find any swith to include the patch to.

Is there any one that know how to do?

SAP Patches should be applied to the network install via the SAPADMIN tool. It's one of the menu options.

Once it is applied to the network, you can use your command to apply the patched version to the workstations.

I have created my package in the SAPADMIN gui. But I could not find any way to include the patch. But there is an option to include VBScript in the package in this tool. Is it that way you are thinking of? Thats the only way I can see that I can include the patch using the Admin tool.

IIRC, you can not apply a patch to just a single package in the SAPADMIN tool. You have to apply it to the install as a whole, thus all new and existing packages will use it from that point on. Look on page 34 in the link below for specific directions. This document refers to version 6.x, but it should apply to 7.x as well.

Hello, I have created SAP Package using the SAP Install Server Admin Tool, It will install 7.10 with a patch or upgrade from 6.x.. It works fine...

What I want to know is… Is there a way I can install my package to a PC "Preconfigured" (i.e. System Connection Parameters)?

Thanks for your help...

Or does anyone know where the "System Connection Parameters" are saved/stored...

IIRC, these settings are stored in the SAPLOGON.INI file in the C:\WINDOWS folder. I'm not sure if you can modify this file in the network install point or if you have to distribute it some other way. We had a command in the login script to copy that file.

I used to work for a company that used SAP, but no longer, so I'm going from memory here.

\\Server\Shared folder\NwSapSetup.exe /Silent /Package="my package"


Hello all.

I have create an SAP7.10 package using the NWSETUPADMIN.EXE. The problem is using SMS to launch the package. If I use the following command in a .bat file it works fine...\\Server\Shared folder\NwSapSetup.exe /NoDLG /Package="my package" I get a progress bar with no user intervention. If I run this in SMS it runs a successful silent install with no progess bar. I would like to have a progress bar visable with no user intervention. Any halp on the command line for SMS? I thought it should be the same as the working .bat file?

Regards
Paul

Hi Paul,

The only thing I can think of is that the window is being hidden by SMS. IIRC, there are two ways to do this in the program properties. On the first tab, you need to select to run the window Normal instead of Hidden. On the environment tab, there should be a check box that says "Allow user to interact with program". I think this needs to be checked in order for the user to see the window.
