NWDI 7.5 upgrade issue - DCs not visible in NWDS

Hello Everyone,

We are upgrading our NetWeaver from 7.3 to 7.5, we are facing few issues:

We have recently installed a new NWDI 7.5 system on which we need to migrate the old portal tracks from NWDI 7.3

We have followed the below steps:

1. The Functional Unit configuration UI wizard has been run to set up the domain and CMS.

2. Copied the archives of the custom SC's from old Inbox to the new inbox.

3. Created new SC's in the new SLD with same name as old SC's and assigned dependencies of newer version.

4. Created a new track for Portal on NWDI 7.5 and added these custom SC's to the track.

5. Checked-In the Custom and dependent standard SC's from Transport Studie.

6. Imported in Development Queue.

Now the issue is, when we try to access the track from NWDS, we are unable to see the Webdynpro DC's associated with those custom SC's.

Those DCs are visible in DTR but not in the track that we import in NWDS.

Could you provide a hint on which step or configuration are we missing here?

What should be the deployment method of runtime systems? Should it be SDM or deploy controller? We have selected SDM but the Web Dynpro Java application doesn't get deployed on the portal server when we check-in & import the SC's in the transport studio.

Thanks

Priyanka

    Please execute a Synchronization from the NWDS with the DTR server.

    In this document

    in chapter 6 there is a screenshot about this.

      Thanks Milen for your helpful answer.

      The issue is resolved.

      The DCs were broken because while importing the SCAs from the older track, the correct SP version was not defined resulting into broken DCs. Corrected the same, imported the track and synchornized the DCs.

    1.

    If the import in the CMS - Transport Studio - tab Development is successful, then after the import of the track in the NWDS it is necessary the DCs to be synchornized.

    In the NWDS, only DCs in the custom SCA will be available for modification and customizations. The other DCs, from the SCA dependencies, might be refered only with the public parts.

    2.

    "What should be the deployment method of runtime systems? Should it be SDM or deploy controller?"

    There is no SDM since NW 7.1. Hence the P4 port, configured in the CMS - RTS must be be 5xx04, where the xx is the instance number of the target deployment RTS.

    3.

    "We have selected SDM but the Web Dynpro Java application doesn't get deployed on the portal server when we check-in & import the SC's in the transport studio. "

    This is wrong configuration. I have explained why. When you configure correctly the RTS, please review the following Trouble Shooting Guide and to cross check whether the connection test works
