Before we start to install SAP IDES EHP8 we should have

  • Installed virtualbox on our host os (in my case Windows7)
  • In virtualbox we have created VM (virtual disk 500 GB, 8GB RAM and installed windows 2012 R2 server standard edition)
  • Installed VM VirtualBox Extension Pack on Windows 2012 R2
  • Setup shared folder with SAP installation files

Configuration for windows 2012 R2 server

  • Set the Virtual Memory size to 24GB. (A restart of the server is needed.)
  • Set name for windows server (max 13 characters)

  • Install Loopback Adapter

Set up ip adress for loop back adapter

Add IP addres & Computer name in “hosts” file
Location C:\windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

  • Install .NET framework 3.5 (run folowing command)
Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /All /Source:D:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess
  • I have also download and installed Java JDK “jdk-8u202-windows-x64.exe” from Oracle, but I guess its not necessary.
  • Install RDBMS MSSQLSRV 2014 SP1 (run file SQL4SAP.bat)
