Sap solution manger BW client post upgrade

Hello All,

We have recently upgraded our solution manager 7.0 EHP1 system to solution manager 7.1 SP11.

At the moment I am doing solman_setup -> basic configuration

in Step#2.1 Specify BW system - I have selected option " Use standard Sap solution manger" which is as per Sap's recommendation.

So now my BW is set in productive client 017. After running FM - RS_MANDT_UNIQUE_SET, my BW environment is registered in 017 and all is well.Before upgrade BW was setup in client 001  even though client 017 was productive.

Now in step# 5: Configure automatically -> Activate BW source system is failed.

When I enter in RSA1 transaction to activate it manually, I get a pop up error as follows -

"STOP: Logical system name has been changed for this system."

Rest all activities in step 5 are green.

Please provide inputs , what could be the solution here.

    Hi Ambrish,

    There are there options.

    Either you can use old 001 as you BI client or 017 as you new BI client.

    So, you can use BDLS or refer below KBA to set correct client.

    Hi Ambarish,

    Here's what I suggested to the person having the same problem as you and it worked. Try it out.

    What do you see in table RSBASIDOC. in both the clients, (001 and 017)

    What are the values in the row which has SLOGSYS=RLOGSYS.

    Please run BDLS on this table only.

    The old logical name as XXXCLNT001 and the new logical name should be of your 017 client,  XXXCLNT017.

    Uncheck the boxes, "Test run" and "check existence of new names in tables" before running BDLS. and then try to re-run RSA1.

    Then , the first thing, activate and restore the source system in RSA1 manually in client 017 .

    Right Click on the my self source system and choose restore, it will give a popup, chooser replicate as well as activate. Once this is done, start the Solman_Setup again.

    • Hello Amit and Divyanshu,

      Thank you very much for the inputs really useful.

      As per your inputs I feel keeping client 001 as Bw client looks better option.
      This will avoid any loss of data and bdls.

      I wil restart from step 2 in basic configuration with 2nd option i.e. Bw system on another client than productive. Lets hope this will ease things.

      Thanks again.

      Best Regars,

    Hi All,

    This is just to update you that issue is resolved after keeping client 001 as Bw client.

    I had to restart basic configuration from step 2 however all went well.

    Thanks for your inputs.
