Client PC Configuration
Configuring SAPGUI on the client PC.
The client computer is configured via the SAP GUI system properties wizard. The connection parameters for SAP GUI on desktop and mobile looks as shown below:
This system properties dialog box contains the following information:
The description can be literally anything. Typically, this is either the name of the SAP server or the Liquid UI Server aka GuiXT Server that the user will connect to. In our example, the description is ‘GuiXT Server’.
- Application Server
The application server is the name of the application server the user will connect to. In our example, the application server is named ‘TEST’.
- System Number
The system number is the system number of the application server. In most real-world cases, this will be ‘00’ as in our example.
- System ID
The System ID is the SAP box to which the Server will be connecting. The System ID can be different depending on your corporate environment. Some examples might be ‘DEV’ for development, ‘QAS’ for regression testing or ‘PRD’ for production. Each of these can have specific data and restrictions associated. For example, development might be prohibited in PRD so as not to risk damaging the production system or data.
SAP Router String
The SAP Router string contains the actual IP address of the application server. However, you will only enter a SAP Router string if the Liquid UI Server will be used as a SAP Router. Using Liquid UI Server as a SAP Router is explained below. Leave this blank for a standard Liquid UI Server connection.
