Warning received when accessing Sandbox R/3 system via NWBC


I'm currently involved in a NWBC PoC pilot, where we are looking to setup a number of connections/trust relationships from a primary SAP system to other SAP systems via NWBC. We are working NWBC 4.0 PL9.

However when I try and login to our R/3 Sandbox system via NWBC, I receive the following warning message:

After clicking OK, I'm able to access NWBC but I do not see my User (Role) Menu (Work Centres) from the initial Index screen.

After a while I receive another warning message:

Anyone have an idea what is causing this and how it can be resolved?

    this is probably due to NWBC runtime.

    Please apply the last NWBC runtime patch and try again.

    Best regards.

      Yes he's setup the same as myself and accessing same systems.

      Appreciate the fact of always being on the latest version, patches etc....but as we are working a Sandbox only PoC ...may not justify additional effort/cost to implement upgrades at this time.

    FYI folks, we finally got this one resolved.

    If you encountered the same issue, please follow steps below….

    1. Check system selection setup in NWBC and ensure that you don’t have duplicate entries and/or multiple entries for the same system, where the name & description are similar.
    2. After logging into the target systems, left click top left-hand corner of front screen
      (Index page) > Settings > Personalize.
    3. Ensure that the check-box “Use SAP Menu Instead of User Menu” is not selected.
    4. Apply change and then re-launch NWBC and you should no longer receive the warning messages and be able to access the PoC roles assigned.
