SAProuter Installation on UNIX

1. Create the subdirectory saprouter in the directory /usr/sap/.

Get the latest version of the SAProuter from the SAP Service Marketplace (, as described under Installation of the SAProuter. The SAProuter is in packet saprouter*.SAR; the program niping is also in this packet. Copy programs saprouter and niping to the newly created directory /usr/sap/saprouter.

If you cannot copy the programs from SAP Service Marketplace, you can copy a version (may be obsolete) from your directory /usr/sap//SYS/exe/run.

2. (Optional) If you want to start the SAProuter on the same computer used for an SAP instance, insert the following line into file /usr/sap//SYS/exe/run/startsap:


# Start saprouter



if [ -f $SRDIR/saprouter ] ; then

echo “\nStarting saprouter Daemon “ | tee -a $LOGFILE

echo “----------------------------“ | tee -a $LOGFILE

$SRDIR/saprouter -r -R $SRDIR/saprouttab \

| tee -a $LOGFILE &



Insert the lines before the commands to start the SAP instance.

Normally the SAProuter runs on a different computer. If this is so, this step is omitted and you start the SAProuter as described in Starting the SAProuter.

Maintain the route permission table in directory /usr/sap/saprouter. If you want to keep it in another directory or under a name other than saprouttab, you must specify this with the SAProuter option -R (see Option R ).
