This help system provides information on the required Roles and Features that must be installed for Stewardship Tier (formerly called DSP) to function as well as installation steps and post installation tasks. Send feedback or information about errors or omissions to

The success of the installation is heavily dependent on correct environment preparation. The typical environment is a server pair – one server running Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) hosting the Stewardship Tier web site and the other server running Microsoft SQL Server hosting the databases. It is possible for the Web Server and Database Server to be the same physical machine. However, this is not supported for production environments. Also, the Stewardship Tier offers integration points with SAP Data Services and Information Steward. To avoid any potential resource contention, we recommend that these SAP components not be installed on the Stewardship Tier Web Server or Database Server.

After the initial installation of the Stewardship Tier, little maintenance from the administrator is required. Ongoing responsibilities include applying periodic updates to Stewardship Tier, monitoring Internet Information Services (IIS) and SQL Server performance and adjusting site parameters. It is also important to check that service pages configured to clear out stale data from database tables are completing successfully and that index maintenance is performed on the databases to avoid performance degradation over time. Some organizations may divide responsibility for IIS, Stewardship Tier and SQL Server administration depending on the organizational structure. This manual focuses primarily on preparing the environment and installing the Stewardship Tier software.
