SAP Host Agent - service/protectedwebmethods


Hi All ,

I've read a lot of notes and threads but I am at a loss with this problem.

Having read blog sapstartsrv service parameters - Basis Corner - SCN Wiki and the notes mentioned therein I set the host_profile parameter to

service/protectedwebmethods = NONE

For testing purposes so we could call method GetDatabaseStatus amongst others without requiring username and password.

I also tried with

service/protectedwebmethods = DEFAULT -GetDatabaseStatus

But nothing I try seems to stop it asking for username and password, and yes I restarted the host agent each time the parameter was changed. I thought the whole point of the parameter was to allow or disallow protected methods.

This doesn't seem to function as far as I can tell.

I am running the latest version of SAP Host Agent 720 PL206.

I've tried this on Windows and on HPUX but they both do the same thing.

Am I missing something here?
