The data centers and logical networks, as defined and operated by the network team, shall be declared within SAP Focused Run. These network segments, named Customer Networks, are used by LMDB as namespaces, to bundle and protect system definitions and collected metrics. This is reflected, as an example, in the below schema with A and B. Such Customer Network can be then also assigned to a customer (via so called Business Partners).
To declare a Customer Network, within SAP Focused Run using SSI Configuration, you shall have a clear understanding of the network layout and associated proxies and reverse proxies. You are asked to mention:
Follow below rules:
Pay attention to the terminology: In the context of SAP Focused Run, the term reverse proxy designates a pass-through from the managed objects of the customer network, to the FRUN system.
Finally, consider that a predefined customer network named LOCALNETWORK is created, while performing the initial set up of LMDB, as described in the Master Guide.
This local network can be utilized within FRUN in case no specific security or data separation is required (and no proxy or reverse proxy is in place).
To create the customer network within SAP Focused Run, navigate to Infrastructure Administration / Global Settings & Network Configuration, within the Launchpad and:
Choose the Network Creation tab.
Note: Each time a customer network is created within SAP Focused Run, using SSI Configuration, a set of associated technical users are created. Refer to following chapters in the SAP Focused Run Security Guide for further details:
Then select the Network Settings tab
Select the previously create Customer Network
Enter the Password of the existing sapadm OS user, relevant in that network segment
Note: The sapadm OS user dedicated to the SAP Host Agents. It is a reserved OS username and the password usually defined when installing a SAP Host Agent, or any SAP system. This OS user password shall be the same on all hosts that belong to a given customer network. It is currently not possible to define different sapadm OS user passwords for the hosts of a given customer network. Refer to the SAP Focused Run Security Guide, chapter Technical Users for Managed OS for further details.
The above customer network wizard creates users automatically with a generated password. Therefore, you shall define the password of the following technical users:
Note: Do not simply use transaction SU01. Refer to the security guide for additional details.
Therefore, proceed as follow:
Only since SAP Focused Run FP02. In this section, select the Use-Cases that the Simple System Integration will Setup during the Automatic Technical Systems Configuration operation:

Note: Only experts shall use this report. Customer Networks are sensitives data. This procedure must only be used to change the Data Center (field: Data Center 1).
As of SAP Focused Run 3.0 SP00, The Maintain Data Centers tab in the Global Settings & Network Configuration application has been extended to show Country/Region-Code and Country/Region-Name information. Information on the country or region is retrieved from table T005T, column LANDX. If you have the requirement to display Country/Region-Name information different from what SAP provides by default, you must follow the maintenance instructions available in SAP Note 1164216.
