We have PI 7.11 (Dual Stack)
In NWA JCO RFC Provider there are a lot of entries which point in tab Server Configuration to PI Gateway and in tab Repository Configuration to any applicationserver of ABAP system in our landscape. SysNr, Client and user credentials belong to the abap system.
I can stopp and start the programs in NWA.JCO configuration.
In SMGW of PI I can see, that the programs are registered at PIs gateway.
If an ABAP-System, mentioned in Repository Configuration of JCO entry, is down, then the JCO server can't be started.
For what reason one would create such JCO entries?
In my oppinion gatway and applicationserver in a JCO entry should point to same system. Usually to PIs gateway and applicationserver.
Is there a reason why SAP spread the entries to different tabs?
