SAP Solution Manager 7.1 SPS12 solman_setup problem with RFC SAPOSS

Hi,i hope i'm not duplicating this question but i searched and didn't find anything usefull,my question is this:

Solution manager documentation is very confusing and one note takes you to another, i completed SPS update and solman_setup prerrequisites, but when i run solman_setup in the system preparation-> check installation step i get the error "RFC connection to destination SAPOSS failed".Is there any aditional prerrequisite ? i searched my documentation al over again and i can´t find anything related to this RFC connection in the prerrequisites section(Configuration Guide section 3.1).

Besides, the next step in solman_setup creates the connection SAP-OSS, and SAP-OSS-LIST-O01 ,this step also failed as you can see in the next picture:

Are these connections related to the SAPOSS? is it possible that this step fails due to the s-user authorizations?

I would be very thankfull if somebody can help me and if you have some advice about extra prerrequisites not found in the documentation.

Thank you very much.

    Hi Luis,

    first you need to create via transaction "OSS1" an existing connection "SAPOSS" with correct sap router on your side and on SAP side. You can check this connection via transaction SM59.

    After that, via SOLMAN_SETUP the guided step will create connections SAP-OSS and SAP-OSS-LIST-O01 with the in SOLMAN_SETUP specified S-user. But these two will use the technical details from connection SAPOSS. So it is important to get this connection working first.

    Hope that helps! Kind regards,

    Did you run tx oss1 which is typical for all SAP ABAP systems as part of the post installation configuration? That generates the base OSS RFC that all of the other OSS RFCs that are required in SolMan.
