Import Manager - Error Connecting to Source

Hi,

I have installed SAP MDM 5.5 SP04 on Windows 2003 and MDM Oracle Database on Solaris 5.10.

When using import manager from my desktop, i am unable to connect to source. It says "<i>Unable to connect to source</i>".

But when i take remote connection of MDM Server, and run import manager from there i can connect to the source.

Someone pls help me on this.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Chintan Sheth

    Hi Chintan

    When you start the Import Manager, it presents 2 windows to you. The first window is the connection to the repository. The second window is the conncetion to the source (where you want to import data from.)

    I assume the failure you're getting is at the second window (otherwise you'd be getting "<i>Error Connecting to Repository</i>".

    Where are you wanting to import data from? If it's from a database, you will need to A) have the database client installed on your desktop and B) configure a connection to the database server.

    It is your desktop that is establishing the connection to the source, not the MDM server.

      Yes, it is so if they want to use the Import Manager from their desktops.

      An alternative is to install the Oracle client and Import Manager on a shared server running Windows Terminal Services. Users can then connect to the the WTS box and use the Import Manager from there.
