SAP Solution Manager 7.0 with SAP enhancement package 1 provides a guided procedure to help you set up your SAP Solution Manager system and connect to the satellite systems in minutes after it is installed.
Key Concept
SOLMAN_SETUP is a transaction that allows you to make initial and basic configurations of SAP Solution Manager in minutes using a step-by-step wizard. These configuration settings are required after installation in order for certain functionalities to work. SOLMAN_SETUP also lets you run guided procedures for every managed system that will connect to SAP Solution Manager.

Once an SAP Solution Manager system is installed, you need to make a number of basic settings so the initial functionality is available for use. These activities are normally accessed through the IMG in transaction SPRO — there are several activities under the Basic Settings menu and other activities under Cross-Scenario Settings and Scenario-Specific Settings that need to be set up (Figure 1). However, going through all these activities can sometimes be confusing and time consuming. In addition, many companies do not require the setup of all these activities, depending on the SAP Solution Manager functionality they intend to use.
