Preparing CA APM Enterprise Manager

Task Actions
Run Outside Discovery on the Host As prerequisites, you shall install the SAP Host Agent and run Outside Discovery as described in page Preparing Outside Discovery.

Install CA APM EM

Use CA APM EM 9.7.1 or higher

Note: Only one CA APM EM system per Customer Network must be installed. Having multiple CA APM EM is an unsupported scenario.

Since Focused Run does not yet support an Introscope EM cluster a workaround must be applied to connect a MoM as a "faked" Standalone EM to Focused Run. To do so the property has to be added in file <EM_HOME>/config/ Restart EM and as a result the MoM appears as Standalone EM in LMDB.

As root or Administrator, upgrade the SAP Host Agent to the latest 7.21 Patch Layer Level version.

Check Global SAP Note 797147 for installation procedure of CA APM EM, CA APM EM Agents and Webview

As sapadm (and part of group sapsys), install one CA APM EM, typically on the customer management server. Follow the CA APM installation guide, referenced by SAP Note 2138309 (for 9.7), or SAP Note 2285189 (for 10.1), SAP Note 2534316 (10.5)


Note: The CA APM EM Management Module (MM) Packages shall have minimum version:

  • MM 9.7 SP01 Patch 3
  • MM 10.1 SP00 Patch 1
  • MM 10.5 SP02 Patch 0

No CA APM EM is required in a given Customer Network, if no BCI Adapter are installed on managed systems that belongs to this Customer Network.

Note: If you have upgraded the SAP Host Agent before to Install the CA APM EM, you must restart it after the Data Supplier execution.

Check if an SLD Data Router (SLDR) is needed As a prerequisite, you need to choose, according to your landscape, if an SLD Data Router is required see page Preparing System Landscape Data Router.

Configure SLD DS 

The CA APM EM creates an SLD DS payload, sent to Focused Run by the SAP Host Agent. If host name virtualization is in use, this name must be provided as part of the SLD payload.

This user must have Administration permissions (Automation possible via OS script)

Update file, setting:<virt name>

A restart of the CA APM EM triggers:

-payload file registration to the SAP Host Agent (saphostctrl -function ConfigureOutsideDiscoveryPath -register <file>)

-payload file sending (saphostctrl -function ExecuteOutsideDiscovery -xmlfromconfig -sldreg)

Create a Technical User

A Monitoring User is required if the Trace Analysis feature is enabled (use-case AUM – Advanced User Monitoring) as described in the Security Guide.

The Monitoring User must be entered in the “Edit Configuration” dialog in Simple System Integration.
