RFC open Hub error at BW/BODS


Hi All,

While running the BODS job we extract data via OHD(Open Hub Destination 3rd Party Tool) which calls a BW process chain, during the execution we found that BW process chain loads the data at BW end and then while communicating with DS via RFC it throws error. This used to work previously without any error message.

Data Services Version: (DS 4.0)

RFC server interface details retrieved from Management console. There are 2 active RFC interface configured at BODS and BW is using multiple application servers via Open HUB Destination.

We logged a ticket with SAP Support Team and they provided the following update::

Data Services does not support extracting via Open Hub from a load balanced BW environment before Data Services 4.2 SP1.

So you will need to upgrade to make use of this functionality.

For more details I attach an additional KBA 1747494 - Data Services

and load balanced ECC and BW environment

We are yet to upgrade to 4.2 SP2 which will require some time. Is there any workaround for the issue or has anyone come across such kind of issue.
