Is SMT server service supported on the SLES for SAP product?

This document (7022296) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 for SAP Applications Service Pack 3
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 for SAP Applications Service Pack 4
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 for SAP Applications Service Pack 2
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 for SAP Applications Service Pack 3

Situation

Customer would like to use the Subscription Management Tool server service on a SLES for SAP server.

Resolution

Using a SLES for SAP server as a host for the SMT server is supported, however, it is not advised.




Additional Information

SAP software can be very resource intensive, especially HANA. Therefore, adding any non-essential work-load on to the same server running SAP software is not recommended.

The SMT server service will add CPU, network bandwidth and storage requirements. Depending on how many repositories are being synchronized, the storage required can be many hundreds of Gigabytes and the SMT sync-cycle can run for quite some time. Considerable network traffic can also be incurred in relation to the patching of any clients that are registered to the SMT server service running on a SLES for SAP server.

Please note that this technical document is providing information related to using a server running SAP software as an SMT server host. This document does not discuss the patching of a server running SAP software using SMT (where the server running SAP software is an SMT client).
