Enabling http Proxy in SMD Agent


I have installed the Diagnostic Agent 7.3 on a managed SAP system and have connected it to our Solution Manager 7.1 system. However, the SAP system is not directly accessable by the Solution Manager due to our company network restrictions. I am connecting it via our saprouter which works fine except the SMD Agent is also trying to access the Solman system using URL http://<solman host>:52200/sap/bc/srt/scs/sap/e2e_dcc_push?sap-client=<client>

I notice in there are some settings output for http proxy.

Does anyone know how to set the HTTP Proxy and port. I thought it was via the via parmameter

but this did not seem to work. Any ideas welcome.

    You can use saprouter to connect to sap solution manager. Check smdsetup addsaprouter option.

    • Hi Richard,

      I also tried adding http.proxy* parameters to the SMD agent profile before being referred to the wsnotify.proxy* properties, but without success (see my reply dated Sep 2, 2013 2:56 PM). But maybe your problem is a bit different from mine. Please report what SAP suggested as solution.

      Best regards,

    Hi Richard (and all the others trying to use a http proxy for SMD2SolMan communication),

    I am facing a similar problem: some SMD agents (only those in the DMZ, but not the ones in the intranet!) have to connect ot our SolMan via saprouter. Thus they also should use a http (reverse)proxy (SAP Webdispatcher) for http communication to SolMan. As far as I understand, this SAP Webdispatcher can be maintained centrally at "SOLMAN_SETUP--> Configure Connectivity--> Configure Web Dispatcher". However when maintaining a SAP Webdispatcher in SOLMAN_SETUP, this would be used by ALL SMD agents! And this would not be working in our landscape. I opened an according OSS incident (new wording!) for this matter.

    Best regards,
