Generate New RFC Connections in Solution Manager


  1. Choose the ABAP-based main instance of the system for which you want to generate RFC connections, in the left-hand frame.

  2. Go to change mode.

  3. Select a client in the Clients tab.

    Note Note

    You can also generate RFC destinations using an assistant. To call the assistant, choose Generate RFC with Assistant in the Clients tab.. Or proceed from 4).

    End of the note.
  4. Choose Generate RFC Destinations.

  5. Choose the type(s) of the RFC connections in the following dialog box.

    Recommendation Recommendation

    Choose the RFC connection type Trusted System for the SAP Solution Manager, whenever possible. This avoids having to logon again every time that you go to a component system when using the SAP Solution Manager.

    The details of the RFC connection to be generated, are shown at the bottom of the screen.

  6. Choose the user options. If, for example, you use the central user management, you can assign existing users in the component system.

  7. You can specify a server group for load sharing, in the RFC Destination Attributes group box.

  8. If the specification of the message server is not sufficient to set-up an RFC connection in your network, or your network contains routers:

    1. Choose Routing Information in the RFC Destination Attributes group box. The following dialog box displays the message server data. If you have not yet created the system message server as a server, it is created automatically and displayed at the left-hand side under Landscape Components, when you restart the Solution Manager System Landscape transaction.

    2. You can specify an IP address.

    3. Specify the routing information for the direction Solution Manager -> Router -> Server, e.g. /H/

    4. Specify the routing information for the direction Server -> Router -> Solution Manager, e.g. /H/

      Note Note

      The Solution Manager System Landscape calls information to generate RFC connections in the following sequence:

      • Detailed routing information (e.g. /H/

        If there is none:

      • Server IP address

        If there is none:

      • Server name

      End of the note.
    5. Save your entries.

  9. Remote read is the default for system data, because the SAP Solution Manager requires current system data, for example, to read the data of imported Support Packages. You should not reset the flag in the Actions after Generation group box.

  10. Set the Assign RFC Dest. for System Monitoring flag to use the RFC destinations which you generate in the Solution Manager System Landscape in central system monitoring (transaction RZ21) and in the Solution Manager for operating your solution landscape. You only need to set this flag for one client per system.

    The system enters the RFC destination data in the overview of the monitored remote SAP systems, in central  System Monitoring (transaction RZ21)  Techn. Infrastructure  Display Topology  .

  11. Choose Generate RFC Destinations.

    You go to logon screens for each of the systems involved, consecutively, depending on the connection type selected.

  12. Logon to the systems.

    Note Note

    The system generates a log with information about the checks made, and all messages sent while making the connection
