Managing Inventory Beacon Connections

You can define the connections to SAP Admin modules, their dependent SAP systems, and independent SAP systems. Please note that although the inventory beacon does not connect to the dependent SAP systems, you must however set up connections to the dependent SAP systems so that they are added to the system landscape in FlexNet Manager Suite, and to enable the landscape synchronization with the SAP Admin module. (Dependent SAP systems that are not defined on the inventory beacon are not imported into FlexNet Manager Suite and the SAP Admin module.)

Important: For inventory beacons which run on the central application server, the collection of SAP inventory data is not supported. In this case, you must set up an inventory beacon on a server which is separate from the central application server. Otherwise the connections to the SAP systems must be configured directly in SAP mode using the web interface of FlexNet Manager Suite. For procedural information, see Adding an SAP Admin Module System, Adding a Dependent SAP System, and Adding an Independent SAP System.
