    1 Getting Started with the LicenseAdministration Workbench 2.0

    This short introduction is intended for administrators who are carrying out a license audit and want to consolidatelicense measurement data with the License Administration Workbench 2.0 (LAW 2.0).

    To quickly get started with LAW 2.0, the standard processing steps involved in the consolidation are describedbelow.

    You can find detailed information about the all the functions in LAW 2.0 in the help texts, which can be called upfrom the question mark icon.

    1.1 Prerequisites

    SAP NetWeaver Release (SAP_BASIS) 7.02 (Support Package 13 or higher) or 7.40 is installed.

    The collective note 1995778 (for 7.02) or note 2067837 (for 7.40) was applied including all manual steps.

    CautionThese collective notes are enhanced regularly. Make sure you have applied the newest version.

    The Internet Graphics Service (IGS) and the Adobe Document Services (ADS) must be available and configuredcorrectly.

    The measurement results from the component systems are available as files (.txt or .xml), or can be transferredover a predefined RFC connection to SAP component systems.

    You use the LAW system overview sent with the measurement request to display all the systems whosemeasurement data you want to consolidate in LAW 2.0. All necessary system data (system number, installationnumber, hardware key, system ID) are already contained in the system overview. In addition, individualconsolidation rules and engine usage information can be imported with the system overview.

    In SAP Support Portal there is a list of frequently asked questions:

    2.3 Process Steps in Consolidation

    2.3.1 Managing System Data

    RecommendationThe system overview provided by SAP makes it easy to check results are complete by comparingsystems that are relevant with those systems that have been measured up to now. In addition, individualconsolidation rules, engine usage information, and engine preselection can be imported with the systemoverview.

    To import the system overview, choose Import System Overview, and if necessary, define non-relevant systemsby choosing Edit Systems or going directly to the overview table. If you want to run the consolidation without asystem overview, go to the next process step Manage Results, and import the results of the component systemsdirectly.

    NoteIn the Manage System Data process step, in Extended Mode you can also:

    o Copy a system overview used previouslyo Assign an RFC connectiono Create a consolidation group (for internal purposes)o Assign external systems (e.g. from an SAP HANA measurement) to a system
