Windows Hosts

For a Windows host, the user must have:

  • The ability to authenticate to the OS
  • A minimum of SAP read-only permissions (e.g., a SAP guest account)
  • Additional SAPControl Web Service Permissions: For SAP version 7.38+, execute permission is required for each instance of sapstartsrv on the host. If this permission is being assigned to a group, the monitoring user in the group must have the group set as primary. For more information, see: SAPControl Web Service guide.

Linux/Unix Hosts

For a Linux or Unix host, the user must have:

  • The ability to authenticate to the OS
  • Read-only permissions to the file system of the home directory (i.e., no SAP roles or privileges are required)
  • Additional SAPControl Web Service Permissions: For SAP version 7.38+, write permission is required for each instance of sapstartsrv on the host. If this permission is being assigned to a group, the monitoring user in the group must have the group set as primary. For more information, see: SAPControl Web Service guide.
