Installing the Assessor for SAP: Upgrade Edition transports involves the following steps: Checking for naming conflicts. Installing the Comparison transports. Importing the Assessor for SAP: Upgrade Edition transports.

Checking for Naming Conflicts


On each SAP system where the transports are to be installed, check to make sure that you do not have any objects whose names conflict with the names of the Assessor for SAP: Upgrade Edition installation objects. Note that in 4.x releases of SAP, Assessor for SAP: Upgrade Edition runs under the ICORP namespace. Please see Appendix A on Page 40 for a complete list of the Assessor for SAP: Upgrade Edition installation objects.

Installing the Comparison Transports


To run the installation program for the comparison transports on your source and target systems, you must log on to SAP with a user ID that has SAP_ALL and SAP_NEW authorizations. The user ID must not be SAP* or DDIC. Then carry out the following steps: Note: Failure to follow the installation procedure for the Comparison transports described below can lead to unexpected results in Assessor for SAP: Upgrade Edition. 1. Access the r3inst\r3comp folder from the Assessor for SAP: Upgrade Edition distribution directory. 2. For Unicode systems, copy the contents of the unicode subdirectory to a working directory on your SAP server. For non-Unicode systems, copy the contents of the nonunicode subdirectory to a working directory on your SAP server. 3. View the contents of the INSTALL file in the working directory. This file has explicit instructions telling you which files to copy and import to install the LiveCompare transports. Please note the following when copying the files: For UNIX servers, you must log on with the root user ID to copy the files, then set the authorization mode of both the copied files and the directory to Read, Write and Execute for all users. For Windows servers, you must log on as <sid> adm. The directory to which you copy the files must be in NTFS format, and the copied files must be writeable. If you copy the files from the distribution directory to your SAP server using FTP, be sure to transfer the files in binary mode. The copied files should be in upper case. 21

4. Use the SAP R/3 SE01 or SE09 transaction to review the transport log for the correction that was imported. A Return Code of 0 or 4 indicates success, while a Return code of 8 or higher indicates an error. If any errors appear in the transport log, please contact IntelliCorp technical support using the details at the beginning of this manual before continuing. Install LiveCompare on your source and target systems by carrying out the following steps: 1. Run the LiveCompare installation program by executing SAP transaction SE38. Enter YVPRINST in the Program field and click the Execute button. The following screen is displayed.

2. Make sure that 1 appears in the Begin at step number field, and that This step only? is not checked (if you need to re-run the installation program starting at a specific step, do so only after consulting with IntelliCorp Technical Support). 3. Check that the path in the Work dir for install field matches the working directory to which the r3comp subdirectory was copied (see page 21). If you are installing on a UNIX system, the path should be entered in the field following the prompt. If you are installing on a Windows system, you may use the first field for a drive letter, or specify a UNC path. Note that an installation log file will be written to the directory location specified here. 4. If you wish to be prompted for a transport request when any patches are applied, select a transport layer defined on your system. If the field is left blank, no transport layer will be associated with the comparison objects. When patches are applied, you will be prompted for a local request, which cannot be transported to another system. 5. Click Execute to begin the installation, which should only take a few minutes. When the installation has finished the yvprlog.txt log file is displayed (this file is also written to the working directory). Review the log file for any highlighted error or warning messages. At the end of the log file, you should see the message LiveCompare Installation completed successfully. While you may ignore any warnings that appear in the log, you should contact IntelliCorp Technical Support if any syntax errors or other types of error are reported. Ensure that LiveCompare is installed successfully before continuing with the installation of Assessor for SAP: Upgrade Edition.
