Accessing Component Information for systems connected to Solution Manager

We currently aggregate system component information for our ABAP systems through the following manual (and tedious) process:

Log into each ABAP system

Menu: System -> Status

Click Component Information button (magnifying glass icon)

Retrieve the information: Component, Release, Level, Support Package Name, Description.

Recently, we were drilling through Solution Manager Root Cause analysis -> Change reporting and noticed that this information is available for each system. In the ABAP-Software data store. This led us to consider if this information is contained within the Solution Manager BW cubes.

However when we looked at the SMD Change Analysis (thinking this would map to what we saw in the Change Analysis reporting), we didn't see this information.

So, the question is, does anyone have any thoughts were the Component information for systems is stored in Solution Manager? Ideally, we would like to tap into this source for our own custom report as opposed to retrieving it manually from each system as I described.

    Hi Jeff,

    the information about software components (and this is I think what you are looking for) is stored in the LMDB of Solution Manager. Each satellite system sends its component info into SLD (either in an external system or in Solution Manger itself). From there it is redirected to LMDB.

    Try transaction LMDB in Solution Manager. There you have (depending on your SP-Stack) access to several reports to evaluate your landscape.

    Best regards, Alexander
