Installing SAP ECC 6.0 SR3 IDES on a desktop or laptop

Installing SAP ecc 6.0 sr3 ides on a desktop or laptop, described briefly in this post. These steps are common for installing any SAP system. I have installed IDES SAP ECC 6.0 SR3 successfully last night in my computer. My computer configuration is AMD processor, 5GB RAM, 500GB Hard Disk Drive. The installation took approximately 12 hours to finish. I have done the following steps to complete the successful installation.

Installing SAP ECC 6.0 – Step-by-Step

  • Installed 64 bit Windows server 2003 enterprise edition
  • 500 GB Hard Disk is partitioned into 3 partitions(C: D: and E:). The partition sizing details are as follows…
  1. C: 50GB – 5.76GB filled
  2. D: 300GB – 285GB filled with data
  3. E: Remaining – 55GB software size
  • Assigned ‘sapdev’ as computer name (Host Name) while installing OS. You can choose any computer name, but you need solution manager key for the selected host name
  • Installed Microsoft Loopback adapter and configured it with static IP address. Loopback adapter can be avoided if your computer is attached to network with an IP.
  • Paging file had been set as 25000MB minimum – 30000MB maximum in D drive. Paging file may also be assigned in more than one drive.
  • Copyed complete IDES SAP ECC 6.0 SR3 installation file to E drive

    Hello Sir, I have ides ecc 6.0 incl. ehp3 installed on VMWare. I was tryng to use SAP GUI 7.4 which is installed outside VMWare. The only problem is that while using abap editor, keyword suggestion is not working and all code is displayed in black font. If I use gui inside VM, it works fine. Is there any other setting required to use gui outside VMWare?

      Hi Niraj

      I hope you may have changed some settings in SAP GUI after installation. Reinstall GUI 7.4 once again by selecting all the options. It could solve the problem.
