    Hello Mohammed

    Have you resolved this already? If so, please post the solution.

    If not, then maintain services file with ABAP server details. Next open cmd prompt in your IDM server and type ping <MSHOST> and see if ping is successful.

    Kind regards,

      Hi Jai,

      SAP IDM is on Windows, and an entry is defined in host file for ERP server which is on Linux. It is pinging.

      Thanks & Regards,

    This does not look to be IDM issue.

    Can you check thread service '?' unknown | SCN where similar issue was resolved.

      Hi Ismail,

      Running the job in the eclipse is offering Repository from specific type, which the job is related. Somehow the job doesn’t recognize no one repository of type ABAPSpecifucApplicationServer. One not standard think I can see from the attached screenshot is that the package name is different from what we are delivering as standard ABAP connector package
