System disappeared in /TMWFLOW/CMSCONF


We have experienced a very strange issue that has me scratching my head.

In our SolMan system (we are on 7.1 SP12), I activated CSOL by going into /TMWFLOW/CMSCONF transaction. I activated this for a Development system called "DAC".

We have been making changes in this system for a few weeks now and CSOL has been working perfectly. However, users are now getting a RFC NONE error in DAC when trying to make changes (which is preventing them from saving the change).

I had a look and all my CSOL config in DAC (SM30 > BCOS_CUST) is gone! I am not sure how this happened. And I can't add it back because I get the RFC NONE error. No problem I thought, I will just temporarily turn off CSOL for DAC.

So I went into SolMan but now the DAC system (and UAC and PAC) are no longer showing in /TMWFLOW/CMSCONF (they are showing in Critical Objects tab but not System Change Options tab). So I can't turn off CSOL for DAC!!

I have tried everything to get these systems back. I have checked and all RFC's are working perfectly. All users (SMB_DAC and SM_PSM etc. have the correct authorizations) so it's definitely not that. I have tried creating a new project with DAC > UAC > PAC in ChaRM and creating a new Task List....this still didn't fix it.

I even tried refreshing RFC's in SMSY and then running /TMWFLOW/CONFIG_BATCH_GET program...this still did nothing.

I'm not sure what else to check. And we can't make any changes in DAC until this is resolved.

Any ideas?

    Hi Shaun,

    as a last resort you could open the system in SCC4 and allow changes without recording, add the RFC back to the table BCOS_CUST , save and set the system back to what it was.

    CSOL should only jump in when you add objects to a transport.

    Hope your system isn't too busy 😊

    Strange and scary behavior though, if you get an answer or find a solution, please don't forget to share it here, others might experience the same.

    Thanks Vignesh and Markus.

    Vignesh - I had already checked that note. It is not applicable for our version of SolMan (we are on 7.1 SP12). I also already have a user in 000 of DAC with appropriate authorizations. I have checked the 000 RFC's in SolMan SMSY and these test fine (even though these shouldn't be needed for CSOL).

    Markus - yes, this is exactly what we did. Now CSOL is working again which is great.

    Yet, the DAC (and UAC and PAC) systems are still not showing in /TMWFLOW/CMSCONF and I have no idea why. I have literally tried everything.

    It's not a big issue because CSOL is now working again. But these systems used to appear in CMSCONF (this is where I originally activated CSOL) but now they are gone. Which means I cannot turn off CSOL for only DAC system if need be...

    Any other thoughts on why it's missing from CMSCONF?
