CIF Error: Plant not defined (Please check your input)

Hi Experts,

We have two ERP system and one APO system. While creating Purchase requisitions for cross system scenario, we are facing the issue of transferring the purchase requisition to ECC from APO. It gets stuck in the CIF inbound queue with error Plant not defined.

The internal number generated in APO is not getting changed and a new number is not getting generated. It is stuck in CCR as well.

Vendor maintained.


Info records integrated.

All integration models are in place. We checked Distribution definition and publication as well and everything seems to be place.

Please help if any other settings need to be maintained as well. We are well and truly stuck!

Thanks in advance

    Since its a cross system scenario, check whether supplying and receiving plants are available in both systems?

    I hope you have correctly defined BSG as you are working with two R3 systems.

      Hi Rahul,

      Thanks for your reply.

      I found out the reason for the error.

      Incorrect Logical system name is assigned to the plant in table /SAPAPO/LOCMAP.

      I think this was because the system was refreshed from Production some time ago.

      But after that we had assigned correct logical system to BSG. But still the assignment in the table /SAPAPO/LOCMAP is incorrect.

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks again.
