Performing Initial Data ImportLocate this document in the navigation structure


  • The CIM model and CR content files must be either XML files or compressed XML files in ZIP format.


The SLD server implements the Common Information Model (CIM) of the Distributed Management Task Force (see http:// ). The SAP CIM model and SAP component information ( ) are automatically imported when the SLD is started for the first time during installation. Use this procedure if you want to import a different CIM model or to import the CR content files after the installation.

The CIM model and CR content files are located in the <Drive>:\usr\sap\<SID>\SYS\global\sld\model directory.


Since the file contains all SAP components that are available, the content of this file increases over time to include information about new components, such as new releases and support packages. You have to update the content in the SLD from time to time. You can download the most up-to-date files on SAP Service Marketplace at http://s . For more information, see SAP Note 669669.


If you have already performed the initial configuration of SLD as part of the AS Java system installation, use this procedure only to adapt the configuration.
