Creating source system in RSA1

Hi guys,

I’m trying to create a source system in the TC RSA1 between R/3 PRO y BW PRO. But at the end of the process it sent me the message Source system already exists. There is no other source system for R/3 created. What can it be?

Thanks a lot

Regards,

Vic

    Hi Vic,

    Goto sm59 and delete the logical system for the R/3 system and retry the steps again.

    Check this doc:

    http://help.sap.com/bp_biv135/BBLibrary/documentation/B84_BB_ConfigGuide_EN_DE.doc

    The steps for creating source system (automatic option in RSA1)is as follows:

    1.Create remote logons in both the systems.

    2.RSA1 -> Source system -> Create source system -> automatic creation

    3. Enter the details of the R/3 system and the Remote logon ids of both the system. In case you are using BI 3.5 or greater + R/3 4.7 or greater the password is "case sensitive" hence have all the passwords in CAPS.

    4. Now the system would create a remote logon and show up the remote logon screen. In that screen -> "logon and security" -> enter the remote logon id and password and save. Now the remote logon should not work from there.

    The connection is established.

    Bye

      Hi Dinesh,

      Thanks for your response. The problem was that I both systems, R/3 and BW had the same logical system name. We correct that and created new RFC and it worked.

      Thanks a lot for your answer.

      Regards

    I guess already the source system is created please check it again or better clarify with basis people.

    Thanks,

      I checked it with the Basis, but he doesn’t know what the problem is too.

      Thanks a lot

    hi,

    the message means that the source system is already created .

    you canot acess it so i think there may be a problem for authorization so

    either contact basis guy or add the authorization object

    pls assing points if helpful.
