    • Hi Praveen,

      as far as I understand it, SAP first tries to connect to archive server via frontend using RFC connection SAPHTTP. If that fails, then in a second try the communication is done via server using RFC connection SAPHTTPA. In this case the message CMS066 is written into the application log.

      So all is o.k. but you are "informed" with this error message.

    Hi Praveen,

    Have you changed front end computer settings in DC20??

    • Hi Alex,

      yes I would agree.

      SAP application server generates a complete, valid URL including certificates for HTTP or HTTPS access and gives this back to SAPgui. Then the SAPgui clients triggers to SAP content server by this URL.

      If not accessible/reachable multiple errors can happen as you describes depending on your scenario.

      You can check this URL in detail if you use function module C_DESK_DOC_GET_URL

      if you run test mode by entering a document info record. You will get all URLs to all files linked to the document record. Looks like this

      Then you can check this URL by pasting it to your browser, too.

      Hope this helps ...
