Configuring IIS for Communication between the Inventory Beacon Server and the SAP Admin Module

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

The SAP Admin module can be configured to connect to the inventory beacon server to retrieve and send SAP-related data, such as, for example, SAP usage data, license recommendations, and the active landscapes.

In order to retrieve this data, Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) must be installed on the inventory beacon, and the SAPService web service must be configured. In addition, the inventory beacon must be configured to use IIS.

To configure the inventory beacon to use IIS:

  1. Ensure that IIS is installed on the inventory beacon.
  2. On the inventory beacon server, from the Windows Start menu, run FlexNet Beacon.
  3. On the Local Web Server tab, click IIS web server.
  4. Select Basic Authentication.
  5. Click Save.
After you have performed these steps, the SAPService web service is configured automatically.

For more information on the beacon web server, see Local Web Server Page in the FlexNet Manager Suite online help.
