Solution Manager 7.2 is already in Ramp-Up.

I watched the video of the chearful team of Solution Manager 7.2.


As System Administrators we willl also be installing and configuring Solution Manager 7.2 from now on.
So I decided to install it on premise.

Cloud version of Solution Manager 7.2 is also available on SAP Cloud Appliance
Libraryhttps://cal.sap.com/
(SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SPS01 on SAP HANA for Content Activation Evaluation of a Customer’s Own
Documentation)

I am going to try to write some series of blogs on Solution Manager 7.2 in terms of System
Administration.
They will be about installations, configurations, changes and managed system configurations.
Below you can find the installation specific part of this series of blogs.

Preperation Steps
 Since Solution Manager 7.2 is in Ramp-Up yet you need to apply for this. You can find detailed
info about Ramp-Up in links Demystifying SAP’s Ramp-Up process and SAP Ramp-Up
 Prepare a system for installation. If possible find a system that you could install SM 7.2 on
HANA DB. Unfortunately I did not have chance to use HANA DB. I installed my system on SQL
Server 2012. My system is a virtual system with 4 vCPU and 32 GB of RAM and enough disks.
 Download DVDs

 Obtain Master Guide and Installation Guides


 Read SAP Notes about Solution Manager 7.2
 Preperatory Steps on the system
 Turn Off UAC
 Turn off Automatic Updates
 Turn off Windows Firewall
 Turn off IE ESC
 Timezone Settings
 Regional Settings
 Configure Hostname
 Configure Page File Size
 Configure DEP
 Configure Folder Options
 Configure Start Menu
 Configure Command Prompt
 Activate Telnet Client
 Install Notepad++

After preperation steps I followed the Implementation sequence from Master Guide in below order.
