Systems & Installations

When you purchase an SAP product, a new installation is created. It contains one or more systems, which represents the computer on which you installed your SAP product, or for cloud products,  which tenants or products you have purchased from SAP.

Most on-premise support applications rely on up-to-date system data to improve service quality. With quality system data repeated data input becomes unnecessary.

To ease system data maintenance, you can use the system data synchronization between SAP Solution Manager and the SAP ONE Support Launchpad.

System Data

A system represents the machine on which you have installed your SAP product or a tenant that SAP manages for your business in the cloud. It contains fields such as the Operating System you run on the machine, the SAP product you installed on it, the database associated with your product, the datacenter a tenant is located in and more.

Edit or delete systems, and manage remote connections so that SAP Support can access your systems to troubleshoot your issues.

Each system is associated with a license key. You are able to request a new system using the License Key application.

Help & FAQs

Use component XX-SER-SAPSMP-SYS to report an incident about system data.

Should one of your contracts no longer have an active maintenance agreement, the system will not return any installation numbers when you click on "commercial installation".

Contact your SAP contract department and provide the commercial installation number (shown under Display Commercial Installation) and the existing and the new name.

When a commercial installation has been selected under which the contracts and licenses for your product are not booked, you can either delete the installation after creation has been completed and create a new one under the correct commercial installation, or you can send a service request to your SAP contract department to have the installation reassigned.

If you have requested an installation for a product that is not yet licensed, you will receive only a temporary license key.

To request installations on behalf of a customer, you must complete the installation request form and send it to your SAP partner contract department.
