SLD Configuration : Error opening an RFC Connection

Hi All,

I am working on EP6 SP19 and trying to configure SLD.

I was trying to check the data collection with the transaction RZ70,and I got the following error:

Data collected succesfully

Used RFC Destination: SLD_NUC

RFC call failed: Error opening an RFC Connection

Existing periodic jobs removed, number: 1

Program scheduled: 20070327

Event controlled job already exists,scheduling not necessary

I performed the follloewing steps:

I have imported succesfully.

I have configured the data supplier bridge with following parameters.

Update local SLD (sld/active): TRUE

RFC Gateway:

Server : <host name of J2EE server>

Service : <The SAP gateway service port> (here I gave sapgw00)

This gateway service is installed while installing WAS Java.

Please clarify if I can use the same or Do I need to install standalone gateway instance?

I restarted the Data supplier bridge it is running.

I have created RFC destinations through visual administrator with

JCO RFC provider and used the same name for the program id

in RFC destination of SM59

Once the above steps are done,I am getting the error.(Error opening RFC)

Please give me a clue of wat else do I need to do?

    check the following once.

    How to configure the R/3 system as technical system into portal is follows.

    U need to add some properties in VA.

    Then only it will works.

    U can goto the VA and in SLD data supplier add some properties like this.

    1)HTTP settings: host = poratl host , port=50000 ,user = portal username , pwd=give thepwd.

    2)RFC settings : Gateway host= poratl host and Gatewayservice=sapgw00

    3)CIM client generation settings :host and port are the same as above and user and PWD same above

    After this u need to check the Cimclicnt and that shows success.

    And finally u need to go to the SLD add ur r/3 system properties and and ip address and host name in the host file of ur windows.

    and finally add message server host in the services file in ur windows.

    Have you checked the JCo destinations And SLD connetions.

    If all are correct then u can add the properties in the Application server

    Host file add the IP address and alias name


    in services file add the <Messageserverhost> 3600/tcp.


    Then it might helps you.

      Yes Lohitha, In content admin the buttons for creating and maintaining JCo destinations are enabled.

      Also I have created the technical system(WAS ABAP) with the corresponidn R3 details.
