Once you have installed an SAP NetWeaver CE system, the configuration wizard allows you to make the technical settings required for the technical processing of a system or a technical scenario, for example, connectivity, and service users.


      You make the technical settings with the Configuration Wizard, immediately after installing a SAP NetWeaver CE system.

      The configuration wizard is part of the SAP NetWeaver administrator.

      You use the Configuration Wizard for the initial technical configuration. Further configuration depending on your development scenario might be necessary.


You have installed your system.
