SAP Master Data Management

This page explains how to prepare a SAP Master Data Management managed system for the execution of the Simple System Integration

Currently the following monitoring application are supported for SAP Master Data Management systems:

Preparations in the Managed System

Task Actions
Run Outside Discovery on the Host As prerequisites, you shall install the SAP Host Agent and run Outside Discovery as described in Preparing Outside Discovery page.
Install SAP NetWeaver MDM 7.1 or above

Start sapinst, Select Additional Software Lifecycle Options -> Setup for System landscape Directory. (ex D:\MDM Installation Files\MDM\MDM_IM_WINDOWS_X86_64)

Choose the right instance

Choose the right Instance.


Check if an SLDR is needed As prerequisites, you need to choose, according to your landscape, if an SLDR is required see page Preparing System Landscape Data Router.
Configure the Data Supplier

Execute SAP Note 1798643 for Complete registration to the SLD.

Enter host, port and credentials. The configuration data will be persisted in the file system of the MDM Server. The MDM Servers will be restarted which triggers the sending of system information to LMDB.

Assign a database From LMDB -> Assigned DB Systems -> Assign Database DB SID could be different than the Technical System
Configure NCS monitoring metrics

Log onto the MDM Servers on operating system level. Change the properties in usr/sap/<SID>/MDS<XX>/config/mds.ini, mdss.ini and mdis.ini as follows: Wily Instrumentation=True Wily Instrumentation Level Threshold=10

C++ process with NCS library embedded -> Diagnostics Agent (via NCS port) -> locally stores metrics and forwards to Solution based on MAI configuration.

Restart MDM system Restart MDM system

Check NCS library port.

The C++ process with NCS library send data to the Diagnostics Agent (via NCS port) and then locally stores metrics and forwards to Solution based on MAI configuration.

If the default port can't be used, log onto MDM server, edit usr\SAP\<SID>\MDS<XX>\config\ncs.conf, change parameter agent_port and restart MDM server. Change it as well in SSI. The NCS port is also specified in the SSI “Edit Configuration” view.
Check LMDB

From the LMDB (Technical System view), check the last Data changes from the Data Supplier.

Check The "Software" / "Product Instance" Section the Product Version reported by the SLD data supplier:  For instance, SAP MDM 13 / 19 /20

Edit Configuration in Simple System Integration

Enter values for the following parameters:
