Unable to connect to BW3.5(IDES) from EP6.0


Hi All,

I am trying to establish connection to our BW system (IDES, BW3.5 NW04) from EP6.0.9. I have done the following as per procedure.

- Creating BW system

- Setting Usermgmt (UIDPW and admin, user)

- User mapping also done

Connection tests for connector works fine but fails for WAS.

Test Details:

The test consists of the following steps:

1. Check that the system object defines an SAP system

2. Validate the following parameters: wap.WAS.protocol; wap.WAS.hostname

3. Check the HTTP/S connection to the defined backend application


1. The system object represents an SAP system.

2. The following parameters are valid: wap.WAS.protocol (http) ; wap.WAS.hostname


3. HTTP/S connection failed. Make sure the protocol, host name, and user mapping are correctly defined.

P.S: I have verified the WAS hostname and port from the 'sicm' tcode.

WAS PATH: /sap/bw/bex

Can someone please tell me where it went wrong?
