Step 2: Prepare Each EC2 Instance for SAP Installation - SAP NetWeaver on Amazon
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Step 2: Prepare Each EC2 Instance for SAP Installation

  1. Log into the newly created RDP host in the public subnet. We will call this jumpbox for easy reference. Do this by either using Amazon Systems Manager Session Manager (for command line tasks), or by doing the following:

    1. Go to the Amazon Web Services Management Console, select the EC2 instance jumpbox, and choose Connect. Download the RDP file from the pop-up that appears.

    2. Click Get Password and provide your private key to decrypt the password. This is the password for the local administrator on jumpbox.

    3. Open the RDP file in your preferred RDP program, and connect to jumpbox. Log in with user Administrator and the password that you just retrieved in step 1b.

    4. After you are logged in, go back to the Amazon Web Services Management Console and repeat step 1a and step 1b, but specify the EC2 instance where you will install NetWeaver. We’ll call this nw-ascs for reference. Copy the downloaded RDP file to jumpbox.

    5. While logged into jumpbox, open the RDP file for nw-ascs in your preferred RDP program.

  2. Log in as a user with administrator privileges but not an existing <SID>adm user (as per SAP’s requirements).

  3. Install the Amazon CLI tools or use the Amazon Tools for PowerShell provided with the Windows AMI.

  4. Install the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version that is compatible with your SAP installation software.

  5. Install the Amazon Data Provider, following the instructions for Windows in the Installation and Operations Guide.

  6. Install and configure Amazon Systems Management Agent (SSM Agent).
