Connecting Multiple SAP Focused Run Systems
to One Managed System
The most common scenario, where you want to connect one managed system to multiple SAP Focused Run systems (FRUN DEV/QAS/PRD), is working out of the box, and we assume these SAP Focused Run systems can have the same authorization on the host of the managed system. This is not discussed here. In the following we describe this scenario as an extension of the existing guide “How to connect a customer system located in the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud to an on-premise SAP Solution Manager”.
This Expert Portal page is intended to help you when you want to connect multiple SAP Focused Run systems to one managed system, but the SAP Focused Runs must have different authorizations on the operating system level. This can be the case because one SAP Focused Run is used for operation by the hosting provider, and the other is used by the hosting customer.
For example the hosting provider can be SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud (HEC) running SAP Focused Run and any HEC customer running its own SAP Focused Run. In this scenario the HEC is running its own OS scripts, which are not allowed to be executed by customers. Also, because of the standardized environment, customers are not allowed install to agents by themselves. However, this does not affect the configurations of different SAP Focused Run systems, their configurations are completely separated in Simple Diagnostics Agent (SDA) and CA APM Introscope.
SAP Focused Run is storing configuration data of the Simple Diagnostics Agent in subdirectories identified by the SAP Focused Run system ID, to separate the different configurations from different SAP Focused Run systems. If you plan to connect one Simple Diagnostics Agent (SDA) to multiple SAP Focused Run systems, it is mandatory that the different SAP Focused Run systems have different SIDs. For example, you connect DEV/QAS/PRD SAP Focused Run systems to the same managed system, or your Hosting Provider runs a SAP Focused Run system for system operations as well. Therefore, please choose the SAP Focused Run SID foresightful.
On this page we generalize this scenario by describing a Hosting Customer and any other Hosting Provider using a SAP Focused Run system. In the following sub-sections, we describe certain aspects to be considered, when using two SAP Focused Run systems in such scenario. The following figures show this scenario without firewalls, reverse proxies, and load balancers as they are not relevant for the actual discussion here.
