j.

Exit the wizard with

button.

 

4. Creating the RFC Destinations using the Wizard mode.

 

 

After the new instance was successfully added into Solution Manager, the system will automatically start a new wizard to create the RFC Destination in the satellite system and in the Solution Manager system itself.

 

image

 

a.

Select image button to continue.

 

image

 

b.

In this screen you will select which RFC destination you want to create with the help of the wizard, in our current example we have selected

Customizing Distribution

only. Then you will need to select which type of authentication to configure in the RFC’s,

Trusted System RFC Connection

is the best option since you won’t need to introduce the User and Password every time the system call this RFC.
But you will need to have the proper authorizations to allow Trusted RFC’s to work smoothly, check OSS Note #637429 for additional information on this matter.

c.

Select image button to continue.

 

image

 

d.

Now you will need to specify the User and Password (choose option

Generate User, Specify Password

from the drop-down list). When completed hit the image button.

; again you will need to specify User and Password, as shown below:

Select image button to continue.

g.

Depending on your current instance configuration check the option

Load Distribution

.

h.

Select image button to continue.

 

image

 

i.

Now check the option

Assign RFC Connection for System Monitoring

. Since we will configure the monitoring later, you need to have this option enabled.

j.

Select image button to continue.

 

image

 

k.

Now hit

Complete

button to exit the wizard and the following screen will be shown:

 

image

 

Note:

You will be prompted several times to introduce the user and password, this is due to the fact the system needs to connect to the satellite system in order to create the RFC’s depending on your previous selections, this screen may appears three times; be sure you have proper authorizations in the target system.

 

5. Creating and Assigning Logical Components using Wizard mode.

 

 

The following screen will be automatically shown after successfully completion of the previous step.
