No Message generated for the File to File Scenario - PI 7.3 Dual Stack

Hi All,

I have just created a dummy CS in PI Dev (Inbound for XML file to XML File) – to confirm that we have all the config in place. This is only a dummy one so I might have missed something.

All the design objects and Config objects are created and activated.

However, I am unable to see any message in SXMB_MONI, no queue in SMQ2 and SMQ1 (ECC and PI) and no channel activity in Monitoring the communication Channel.

What am i doing wrong and what have i missed?

I am also not getting any details in Java logs in NWA.

I have not worked that much in PI 7.3 so am not comfortable specially the channel monitoring.

I have also tried to check the channel monitoring via Monitoring component but this is totally different than what i have been used to.

Please advice.

The file paths as created by Basis are with the below format-

\\<SERVER Name>\<File paths>

The server is on Windows so the alternate file path is like - S:\usr\sap\<sysid>\<Interface>

I have always used the UNIX / LINUX system level file paths in my previous experience as /usr/sap/interface/......

Also, Basis have given the file permissions as 666 and i have now requested for full read and write permissions.

I have seen that the file interfaces in previous releases have errored with the file permissions 666 which I had to get changed to 777.

The parent directory and the directory at the same level have 777

Please help as I really need to confirm if we are ready to start the development.

This client has not developed any PI interface in this environment.

    • Hi Hareesh,

      I have worked out a work around now 😊

      The issue is that currently as we are on PI 7.3, we are by default creating channel adapters with Basis 7.3 for example when i am creating a sender file adapter, i choose File in Basis 7.3 domain.

      However, as i discovered yesterday in my analysis, the Adapter Engine seems to be missing the Basis 7.3 in its Adapter Metadata which shows Only 7.1.

      Also, in the next tab for Software Component, I found that the SAP Basis 7.3 is not registered in the list of software components.

      Just to confirm this, i created a sender file communication channel with Basis 7.1 after updating the sender agreement with the new channel, my channel was listed in the channel monitoring.

      As I am not Basis, i really am not sure where all this configuration needs to be updated for Adapter Engine but I have also requested Basis to raise the issue with SAP.

      Hi All,

      Thanks you so much for the continuous suggestions on this. 😊

      I appreciate it 😊
