SAP IDES ERP 6.0 EHP4 / NetWeaver 7.01 Installation Guide on Windows 2003 64-bit – Part 1

Recently i was checking the posts I wrote about SAP IDES installation, and realized it’s been a while since I wrote the last one: https://zieglers.wordpress.com/2007/08/26/sap-r3-ides-47200-sr1-installation-on-windows-2003-r3-and-sql-server-2005/

Well, I think a brand new one is almost necessary: Here I give u, SAP IDES ECC 6.0 Installation on Windows 2003 with SQL Server 2008. I’ll try to explain the process with screenshots and try to keep it really simple. Hope it works!


Step – 1: Download installation DVDs / files from SAP Service Marketplace:

Navigate to installation media


Once you are at SAP Service Marketplace homepage, first click ‘Downloads‘ in first line navigation and then ‘SAP Installations & Upgrades‘.

1-) 1  2-) 2  

On the left navigation, select ‘Installations and Upgrades‘, then ‘SAP Application Components‘.

3-) 3   4-)4

Then, select ‘SAP ERP‘, ‘SAP ERP Enhance Package‘ and ‘EHP for SAP ERP 6.0 / NW 7.01‘ respectively, as shown below. 

5-) 5 6-) 6 7-) 7

Since we’ll be installing IDES version, select ‘IDES-Version‘, and then ‘Windows Server – SQL Server‘.

😎 8 9-) 9

Download media for Export, SAP Installer, Java Component, UC Kernel and SAP GUI

Installation media necessary for SAP ERP 6.0 can be categorized in 5 main titles. This means once you start installing SAP ERP 6.0, SAP installer will ask you installation DVDs for 3 parts. Those are 1. Export DVDs, 2. Java Component, 3.Kernel. Additionally, you’ll need SAP Installer media itself and also SAP GUI. Now, let’s take a look which ones to download.

Export DVDs: You need to download 27 export parts named ‘IDES ERP 6.04/NW 7.01 Inst. Export‘. Once you extract those, there will be 4 DVDs, as shown below. Normal SAP ERP 6.0 installer comes with 2 export DVDs. Extra 2 DVDs result from the fact that IDES version includes many sample companies and related data to be installed.

Note from installation experience: Once installer finishes import jobs, you’ll have almost 160 GB sized database files and 10GB log file in total. No kiddin’! 🙂 (See below)

Java Component: You need to download 4 parts for ‘NW 7.0 EHP1 SR1 Java based SW Components‘ as shown below. This will be only 1 DVD. Depending on your installation choice – ABAP vs. JAVA based – you might not need those during installation.


Also you need 3 parts BS Java components, ‘Java Comp. 7.0 SR1: ERP,CRM,SRM,SCM‘, as shown below.


SAP GUI 7.10: You need to download 2 parts for ‘NW 7.0 Presentation – 7.10 Compilation 4 Present.‘, as shown below.


UC Kernel: You need to download 1 part for ‘BS 7 SR1 UC-Kernel 7.01 Windows Server on x64 64bit‘, as shown below.


SAP Installation Master: You need to download 3 parts for ‘IDES Inst. Mst. 7.01: ERP, CRM, SCM‘, as shown below. This is basically our SAP NetWeaver Software Installer.



This completes 1st part of this article – SAP IDES ERP 6.0 Installation – Gathering Installation Media. We’ll continue with installation environment in 2nd part of the article and start the installation.

If you didn’t recieve your installation media as DVDs, above mentioned approach was an alternate way to get your installation media. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.

  9. Hello;
    Do I need login/pwd to download the installation media? If I have to, is there a fee? Do need to be a customer or partner to SAP, in order to get the files?

  10. Yes you need to have SAP S-ID of customer/partner and also you should have access to download as well. With Authorization of access you can see but will not be able to download.
