Job GRAC_SPM_LOG_SYNC_UPDATE fails with unicode error

Hello team,

We have scheduled the above job GRAC_SPM_LOG_SYNC_UPDATE to run every hour to synchronized logs from ECC system.

Now the job is suddenly failing and job log is showing the below error

Error in RFC; 'Data objects in Unicode programs cannot be compare'

we maintained communication type as unicode in RFC (SM59) in GRC to ECC and in ECC TO GRC, but still the job is cancelling with the above error.

one more point, we are getting this error only in GRC production pointing to ECC production and is succesfully executing for the BI connector

Please let me if you anyone has experienced similar error.

Thanks in advance

    Dear Hari,

    the error comes because the program checks for unicode (you can see in SE38 -> attributes of the program).

    As I've never seen such error I need some more information. Do you face a dump in ST22?

    • Hello Jaiswal,

      SAP informed that they are still investigating the issue. I will update the solution as soon as we get it.

      Could you check and compare the versions of the GRC plug-ins in both the backend and the GRC system?

      In our case, the back end systems have higher version of GRC plug-ins compared to plug-ins version in GRC systems.

      Back end: GRCPINW V1100_700 & GRCPIERP V1100_700

      GRC :GRCPINW V1000_700 & GRCPIERP V1000_700

      SAP suggested either to downgrade the plug-in version in the back end system or upgrade GRC 10.0 to GRC10.1. We have debated with SAP on this, because the same job is executing without any issues in Quality and DEV systems.  Still they are investigating the issue.
